Simply Neutrals #28


Simply Neutrals linky party at AppleApricot


Hello sweet friends,

How are you doing? Hope you're having a wonderful summer (or winter)! Not so many entries last party. And I'm not back in full swing either. The summer vacation just ended, kids back to school, re-adjusting to the normal schedule. It's just too busy here at the moment to get back to creating again or be online much, I'm sorry.

Also, I know that some of my blog friends have a busy schedule, or have other priorities or things on their mind at the moment. All in all this means less interaction here on Simply Neutrals. I do hope you still enjoy the parties though.


Features of last party

Since there were only three participants,
I decided that this time I'll feature my favourite photo of each of them.

Again some gorgeous hearts by Suzy of Suziqu's Threadworks...

My, these pumpkins remind me that we're heading fast towards Autumn again...

Jutta of My Digital Wonderland makes interesting digital collages.
I particularly liked this beautiful collage with beauty caught in bubbles.

Simply Neutrals #27


vintage mixed media collage by AppleApricot


Hello sweet friends!

How wonderful to be back again for another Simply Neutrals party!
I hope you had a wonderful month of July?
We enjoyed beautiful mountain trails and scenery, waterfalls and wildlife.
I will share more of that later on my other blog Love A Rustic Life.

Since we're still busy unpacking and washing etc, and since I'm a little late at the party, I share with you today a golden oldie from my archives. A mixed media collage on canvas board.


Artist interview with Dorthe of Den Lille Lade




It's with great pleasure that I'm sharing with you today an interview I recently had with my dear blog friend and wonderful mixed media artist / doll maker Dorthe Hansen of Den Lille Lade!

Dorthe makes the most beautiful mixed media collages, art books and fabric rolls. Mostly in a nature or shabby vintage theme. But many of us know her as a doll maker. And her dolls have such friendly faces, they immediately take you in. Dorthe uses old laces, hand dyed fabrics, papers, driftwood and other things she finds in nature. And with these items she makes unique, one of a kind pieces of art.
