Thursday...

...this is a page i created on Thursday. i decided to try a little collage experiment on this page with cut outs from an old copy of vogue that was sat doing nothing on the bookshelves. the two big stripy fish and two of the allotment patches were what i did but i decided that it was getting too small and fiddley for me as my sketchbook is only tiny. i enjoyed gluing and sticking and more experiments are in the pipeline but as it is only a week away until i go on holiday, i am finding it increasingly difficult to stay focused! i will be taking my sketchbook on holiday with me as i cant wait to draw 'holidaying' lions that i will see in Turkey. i must now return to the sewing machine as i have forty eight rainclouds to sew and about 150 odd raindrops.

red chair of rescue...

...a month or so back, me, mister and mr robotington saw a red chair sitting outside the gates of our flat complex place. i asked the red chair what he was doing and he said he didn't know what was going on. he said he had tried asking the same question to the old desk chair and the bed mattress but had got no answer from either. we asked him if he wanted to come in as there was a little bit of room in the inn, well in my office and he said yes. so me and the mister showed him the way in and he soon found a comfy corner in which to live. mr robotington kept him company for the first few weeks, helping him to settle in and showed him how to help out with certain household chores. at the moment he is resting and having a mini holiday as he still cant believe he was abandoned. mr robotington said that things could have been worse and that he could have ended up in the canal or on a fire but thankfully we found him in time.

the mister took the black and white photo. aint sure as to why it is in black and white and not in colour though.
