Art with Shells, Seaweed, Decoupage and sometimes a flutter of feathers My earliest childhood recollections are of collecting shells then shuffling them around on a tray to make patterns and pictures. Nothing has changed - I still do. As time has passed I have discovered how to press seaweed with which I make pictures and cards and have also reverted to another childhood pastime, cutting out for decoupage. As for the feathers I find them irresistible and now and again they come into play
