loosefitsmall‘Loose Fit’ Sharon Elphick 2014

I completed this collage yesterday, I seem to be getting slower, always so much to do. For this artwork I used a copy of Paris Match from the 4th of May 1968. I was born in November 1968 so it’s one of my favourite years, and these are some of my favourite colours. I’ve just put it up for sale here.

Oh my word, this challenge is harder than I thought! Day three, postcard number three, somehow I think the chances of creating ten is pretty slim. On this piece I kind of reverted to my default and made things tricky for myself. I’m pleased with the result but tomorrow I can’t take as much time.

So, I’ve st myself a challenge to create 10 original collages at postcard size by the end of this week. These will then be available for sale at £65 each on Friday. Please keep a look out at This is the first, it kind of looks like a building but it’s actually a collage of book shelves taken from a 1963 publication called ‘The Art of Interior Decoration’ by Hachette.
