Precious French & English Fragment Gatherings - Collection No.1


When I am out on buying trips to fairs and little visits to antique shops I am always on the look out for details to place in these lovely little arrangements.  I have a drawer in the studio titled Gatherings, and this is where all the found pieces live until the drawer is full.  I adore how pieces from varied ages and eras can be an inspiration and ingredients for today. 

You may decide to just keep this beautiful collection to own, or maybe use in a project or two, even enjoy simply pinning to a pin board or wall to create an art piece in a quiet corner of your home to continue the journey of these found pieces.

These collections take quite a while to gather and construct.  It is only every now and then that I will set aside some time to create these compositions at intervals throughout the year, so enjoy them while they are here.  There is actually a Gatherings department where another collection in a varied differing colour palette is currently resting. 

This gathering of inspiration includes preciousness such as:

Old French fabrics from the late 1700's -Early 1800's.
Antique lace panels.
Old postcard.
Hand painted lace and tissue panel
Old French receipts, letters and varied ephemera
Hand written reclaimed paper from an old recipe book.
A torn section of a hand written page from an old damaged housekeeping journal.
The odd haberdashery decoratives.
I have taken lots of photographs so you can see the compositions in detail.

To give you an idea of general size of components, the overall layout is within an area space that measures approx 45cm x 50cm.  Some details are hidden in under layers so the area space is a little larger than stated when all laid out unfolded and flat.
