A muse can act as the conscious voice for something your subconscious already knows.
I’m calling week 16 of the 365 project Grandma Edition because I think most of these collages have a vintage feel. Together they build a little story, like a memory of childhood, visiting old grandmothers, sitting outside and drinking lemonade, listening to the spring birds (great tits) in the trees and eating home baked cinnamon buns…
The above collage is the first I made in the series, and the first this year that I felt I had to give a Swedish name. It’s called Fika hos mormor; Visiting grandmother (mom’s mom). More about the Swedish word “fika” in the flickr pool FIKA…
Feel free to comment below to let me know what you’re up to with your projects this year – and if any of these collages strikes your fancy. Thanks!

Illustration of Love II – could’ve also been called “Odd one out” this week – but it’s related to the first collage of week 13, I’m sure you can see? I find more copies of this heart illustration I might make another one. :-)
Happy World Book Day and Glue it Tuesday everyone!
This is a post in my series 365 Collages in 2013 | Plan Your Own 365 Project | About my Creative Process | Previously: Week 15 | Next: Week 17
Summer again is my favorite from thus bunch , although I like them all. I like your use of color to convey a time long ago.
I love the softer tones of your Grandma series. My favorite is Summer again – simple yet lovely.
(This is my first time commenting but I’ve been following your blog for a long while now so hello!)
Oh, I love your collages – and yes, especially the first one. Love the vintage look!!!
I came over from Aimee’s place; I just had to see what Glue It Tuesday is all about. I’m so glad I did!
Your cards are awesome! I love them all!!
I love your title “Grandma Edition”. My postcards for the swap were very “Grandma Edition”. I love the first one, reminds me of a comforting cup of tea in my aunt’s house.
I love the face peeking out in the first one, and the cute dog in the other one.
Love your work! And the Grandma Edition makes my heart happy – it feels like a peek back into sweet times.
love these snipppets so much
I’ve been hearing the phrase “granny chic” a lot lately, and I think that’s what you’ve captured here! :-)
Of my gosh. The first one I absolutely fell in love with. I love your collages!
This might be my favourite week of collages so far – absolutely love all of these! Especially the sweet little birds that appear in the first three collages, and the earthy colours and floral patterns.
you have such a way with vintage pieces…. just gorgeous!
Beautiful. Mod. Retro. All fun + refreshing collages! Well done, Hanna!!!
