Beach Huts Fabric Collage Art Print

Hello lovely Buttoneers! I have a new Eliston Button Etsy Shop item to share with you today! Hooray! Now, before you get all “we have seen this before” on me – you have and you haven’t. So, way back in the summer (doesn’t that feel like it was a lifetime ago now!?) I sold my fabric beach huts collage – the original one that I had created as a part of my Create 28 Blog Challenge.

I was happy to know it was going to a lovely artist by the sea, that it was going to an happy art-loving home, but I couldn’t help but feel a little sad to see it go.

Just like anything I sell in my Etsy shop, I put a part of my arty, crafty heart and soul into each piece and so when they fly their arty, crafty goodness to a new home, I feel like I am waving off a small piece of me…

So, before I posted off the fabric collage, I created a digital copy of the original as a memory of what I and made. As most of you know I am a sucker for memory keeping and documenting the bits and pieces that make up my days. Then I got to thinking – So much work and time and love goes into each piece, isn’t it a shame that I can’t reproduce them easier and make them more accessible for more people, let alone be able to price then accordingly…

…and the rest (which consisted of copious cups of tea and the odd chocolate biscuit during an looooong editing process to ensure a pretty great, if I dare say so myself, 2D print that looks almost as textured as the original collage!) is history! I bring to you, my lovelies, my ‘Beach Huts’ fabric collage prints! Hooray!

Imagine the wind in your hair, the sun on your face and the sand between your toes as you stroll along the creamy yellow beach amongst the rocks and driftwood with the seagulls calling out your name…

You come across a little row of beautifully painted, stripy beach huts and maybe you stop a while for a cup of tea or a snooze under the shade of the wooden roof…bliss…

For this collaged beach scene, originally each small piece of fabric goodness was lovingly hand-picked and cut to size to create a layered collage effect. The warm beige and creams merge together with oatmeal and sunshine colours to create a wonderfully textured surface which translates beautifully on to the 2D Print. This in turn is complimented by slithers of wispy woven cotton clouds, denim blue skies and sea foam highlights of the dreamy sky. Two blue and white striped beach huts with navy blue roofs and doors cuddle up around the a central red and white beach hut, all in a row amongst the soft fabric sand dunes.

I always find that the more you look into each piece, the more you see…maybe pieces of driftwood in the sand or a trail from an aeroplane jetting away to a faraway city or tropical island…

I created this high quality print from the original fabric collage on to quality card with rich coloured inks by myself,  so that the little creative perfectionist in me can ensure a high quality print every time.

Each print will look great in a 8×10 frame which will leave a small white border around the collage itself to set if off in your frame.

So there you go! The ‘Beach Huts’ fabric collage print will be available in the Eliston Button Etsy Shop immediately and will start off with just a few in stock to start with, and I may make more as time goes on. 

What do you think? Can you imagine yourself walking along the soft textured beach? Where would you put this print? I would love to hear all about it!
