Crafty Collaborations and a Blogtoberfest Giveaway


Way back in August, I brought home these collaged canvas backgrounds that Cathy had made, with the intention of making my own collage for the wall......and as per usual, with my procrastinating ways...they've been sitting in my craft cupboard ever since!


Yesterday was the perfect opportunity to take them for a drive all the way back to where they originated to finally be finished....

I didn't quite finish them yesterday, so today I gave them a quick coat of acrylic varnish and glued some purple ribbon around the edges so that now they're ready to be hung.

Now onto the very important part of the post....a giveaway!

The prize will include a 15cm x 15cm piece of lino, a 5 inch x 5 inch artists canvas, and some patterned papers so that you can make your own mini collage.

Once I sell my house and find myself a new house, I'm going to be hanging these in a prominent position in the living room so I need to have the perfect combination....

To win, all you need to do is leave me a comment and tell me whether you like from left to right - Number 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
I will draw a winner next Wednesday night (29th Oct) Melbourne time....

hi cam
i like number 2 because its asymetric but balanced at the same time.

Super Monkey said...

no 5 is my fave. Well done, they look great.

Taccolina said...

Gosh, those are sweet! I especially love the largest one, but they look great together. If it were me, I'd go for arrangement no 2, with no 5 as a close second option. Because as Kitty said, it's balanced but asymetrical.

Sasparilla Sue said...

the collages turned out super! As far as the layout...I tend to like symmetry and balance so I would normally say #3 (that's the virgo in me) but I think #5 is really the bestest.

Bellgirl said...

Number 2 looks good to me, I think it's the large one at the top as well as the asymetry/balance.

And I definitely need some lino, because your craft day results looked amazing!

Emma said...

I like #5.
Maybe I'm being slow but whats the diff between 1 and 4???!
I know I have baby brain but they look the same to me?

Thanks

Helen said...

I think No 2 looks just right.
They look like a pile of gifts in 1, 3 & 4.

Love your collages - just gorgeous! Layout Number 2 is my favourite. Looks like your crafting day yesterday was very productive as well as heaps of fun!!

Hoppo Bumpo said...

The collages look terrific - you must have been very industrious yesterday! I like the way you have arranged #5. Hope you're able to hang them very soon! x

Michelle said...

yes i like number 2...they look fab and turn out fantastic...well done on a great day of crafting...

Shellbells said...

nice my dear. I like the 2nd one the best then the 5th second best...

trashalou said...

No. two is definitely my favourite, choose that one b/c I am the all-seeing, all-knowing TrashCan!!

Or something.

Kylie said...

I actually like the one in the post where the small square one is off center. Sorry - I know that it is not one of the 5, but love it!

Libby said...

Number five is speaking to me, beautiful work.

Jenny said...

They turned out really well and I like the combination in number two the best!

sewfunky said...

Oh, I'd love to win!

Bec Clarke said...

It was a hard sell between #2 & #5 but #2 seems to gel a little better. Lovely work.

Janellybelly said...

I am really drawn to number 5 -which surprises me because I'm the type to typically choose 3!

Linda said...

they are wonderful, I think the best combination is number 2, it looks balanced and just works so well!

Jess said...

They are so cure! I love the colours. My favourite combo is definitely number 5!

avid crafter said...

I actually like how they look in the first photo of your post, where they are lined up on the right hand side. You know, the one of them unfinished. But if you want me to choose one of the numbered layouts... I like 5.

I'm with Emma, 1 and 4 look the same to me.

sewjourn said...

I think No. 2 looks the best followed by No. 5. I'm having a giveaway on my blog too - pop over and have a look and add me to the Blogtoberfest list if you want.
