Inspired by the woods page
Yesterday one of my sons found a beautiful skeleton leaf in the woods so wanted to incorporate it on a page with lots of layers like you see on a woodland floor. I have used some handmade paper recently sent to me from Kim in Arizona and some old ripped book pages and lots of paint and pastels. The words read "better to be happy with what you need than risk everything for more".
We all went into the city today..I was hoping to take them all to the narnia experience but unfortunately it was sold out again so we went to the museum instead. When we came out of there they all said "can we go the chippy again mum?" So, we went to the infamous lobster pot cafe and had some great chips and milkshakes..a fav haunt of locals you can keep your Liverpool one expensive cafes!
I then took them around my fav liverpool streets..bold st where we saw this mosquito on a hand sculpture...art is found all over the place in the city in some unexpected places. We then went past my fav egg space cafe which is great to go to if your arty and then past the barcelona where I used to have some of my paintings for sale many years ago and then past 69a where I used to buy all vintage 1970s clothes and is surprisingly still open. A great day out and we even found a inexpensive car park up near chinatown in oldham st.
