I have been making another junk journal, this time I decided to keep it monochrome. It is a fatty.
Last week I actually managed a trip to London, it has been so long. Happily I chose the best weather day in the last fortnight so my wander along the south bank of the Thames was very pleasant. Southwark Cathedral
Main reason for my visit was the Giacometti exhibition at the Tate Modern. I loved it, I particularly liked the first room which was full of sculpted heads from all stages of his life, amazing variation of styles. Unfortunately there was no photography allowed (they never have a postacrd of the one you want) and the signage, as at most exhibtions these days was dreadful
I liked this explanation of his thin figures, ".I wanted to hold on to a certain height and they became narrow - the more I wanted to make them broader, the narrower they got."
I took the obligitary shot from the fouth floor balcony
and then I crossed the bridge and wandered up to my usual stamping ground around Seven Dials.
I love it when I learn something new to me and yesterday I came across this video by Nik the Booksmith on how to make faux rust.
This is my first attempt.
and here is another video from Nik, Hobby Craft take note this is what a craft store should look like.
and this is a charity/thrift shop.
Mary Portas take note.
Finally, snapped this whilst watching the London athletics on tv.
We live somewhere just over the horizon.
