something old, something new

sometimes i have an idea in my head that i can see and it looks great but when i try to actually create the real thing it looks nothing like it and i get disappointed. then there are days like yesterday.

as the parentals are renovating we have been spring cleaning, which is how i found my new precious box of old stamps. as soon as i saw them i thought hmm maybe they can be a pattern for the laidies to wear. so i spent a long time ilast night burning the midnight oil n a frenzy drawing and collaging and these are the results. i haven't sewn them yet i am actually happy that for once something turned out better than imagined

hope you have a creative day too xxx ava and the birds
