For those not into old sayings and 'auld' slang, the Oggin is the sea in all its glory! I adore the sea, swimming in it, watching it, listening to it and the salty tang in the air as you get close to it.
Obviously a bit to chilly for a dip at the moment, but all of the other glories can be enjoyed.
To celebrate my love of the Oggin, I took a peek at Marine inspired items on Folksy, so here is my Marine Medley for you to enjoy. As ever, please click of the items to sail to the folksy shops and swim in lovely oceans of items.
My mixed media picture, embroidered onto card in knitting yarns, was inspired by the ACEO below, which was painted by the wonderful Janice of Wellydog Gallery.
Her wonderful turtle ACEO is a pride possession in my ACEO collection, and is not for sale, so no asking, it is just there as comparison.
Janice was kind enough to encourage me to list my item and all the proceeds of its sale will be going to the Japan Disaster Appeal Fund.
