Sweet dreams sweet cheeks eco artwork

Check these out Eco art work/collage pictures by Sweet dreams sweet cheeks. 
Her work is a direct meeting point between clean lines and chaos, subtley and kitsch surrealism. 
Artistic merit aside, her work is also made almost entirely from recycled materials.  From vintage cuttings to the glass and wood frames, Sarah stands as one of few environmentally ethical artists currently operating.

I am lucky enough to own one yipee! 

She also creates amazing cards in the same style and mix packs of blank inside cards coming soon...
 email her at her shop! 
(just hit the title to take you to her shop) 

Montage artwork by Sarah Keen - 

Polyvore style

This fab website lets you mix and match images  from anywhere on the web, to create outfits, interior designs, or any kind of collage. Browse and shop thousands of looks created by their vibrant community of stylish people.
A very lovely person created a very special set of our products! thanks xx

Lee ( the guy in the stall next to me) argue most sundays about who fetches the lunch, I guess that is what she is talking about, oops!

recycled desk drawer , purple ribbon necklace. poppy print copyright  UBRA 09

close up biscuit box, jasmine print necklace,  copyright UBRA 09

This piece has been made from wood cut from a wine box. Hand sanded and printed onto.  Its fastening method ties with the vintage ribbons  which have a  print on them . Available to buy in our online shop.

This wearable mixed media piece is made from wooden circles hand cut from a discarded chest of drawers abandoned in the street, and waste leather from a sofa manufacturer. The wood has been screen printed onto with a grey print design.  All hand made with reconstructed broken jewellery. A true unique piece.
