"But a Daydream" collage

Last week’s challenge for Raining Umbrellas was to create a collage selecting a time in our lives that formed who we are today.

If I had to describe in one word who I was as a child it would be “daydreamer”. I grew up on a farm surrounded by nature, free to explore and let my imagination run wild. I read and wrote a lot, so I was always surrounded by fairies and magic folk, medieval knights and fair maidens, ancient deities, forest critters and more.

These enchanted stories and my love of nature have definitely influenced my creative style and who I am.


  • Love it Nikki! so pretty….

  • Oh my goodness, I adore this, Nikki! You have such a sweet and genuine style.

    Your childhood sounds like it mirrors my own. I love nature and spent hours and hours reading fairy tales. Thanks for such a lovely completed assignment!

  • Aww thanks :)

  • So beautiful! And yes, it made me dream as well. The colour scheme, the way you 'organized' your collage … The harmony is as perfect as it is in nature and I love its balance and the way it matches your blog design. You really have a personal signature and that's what I admire in artists (and is difficult to find -speaking for myself ;))
    Curiouser and curiouser put a big smile on my face :)

  • Wow! Such amazing work! I love the combination of the photos, watercolor drawing, and text. Beautiful!

  • Beautiful collage. Makes my thoughts wander off to all the good books and fairytales I have read through the years

  • @cococita it's funny before this year I wouldn't have said that I had a personal signature, but through a couple of these ecourses I've started to see a certain recurring style. And I've noticed I keep coming back to the same colours, which I've even chosen for my wedding!

    I'm glad this piece made you smile :)

    Thank you Dondra and Arctica for your comments as well!
