Making Collages to Avoid Visual Overload – F2F Blocks

 

Several packages arrived on the same day last week – more fabulosity from my F2F block swap partners.  For those of you who are regular readers but not participants, I appreciate that you might not want to see numerous posts on this so I’ve done some collages of the blocks that arrived last week and hope you can still see the hard work that went into them and the beauteous results.

I used a programme called ‘Shape Collage’ for the first two but, after that, it stamps its watermark right across the middle of the image unless you pay to upgrade so I made the last one myself. Any corners, points or other details cut off are purely my doing in the editing process – they are actually all perfect.   I do like the programme though so, if it’s not to expensive to upgrade, I might do so.

The first blocks are from Claire in the U.S. and I love the little orange birds and the unusual teal colour she’s used with the grey spotted fabric.

The second collage contains blocks from Sue at the Magpie’s Nest.  Sue is the co-organiser of the F2F Block Swap along with Kate.

Sue must have been reading my blog and seen my dog habit as the block that is a little hidden has a central text that says ‘My Alarm Clock Wakes Me Up By Licking My Face’ which is definitely what would happen if my dogs were allowed upstairs in our bedroom.

These four are from Nanette.  There are four because she called the one in the bottom right hand corner her ‘stuff up’ block as she thought the colours were wrong.  Not at all!  I love those geckos and that block will blend in fine with all the blocks I’ve received as a whole.

Nearly there now.  I have a few more to photograph and a couple more to arrive – which have been held up due to having the wrong postcode on the envelopes due to an earlier administration error but I am holding on to my confidence in the postal services and have everything crossed they will arrive.
