Hi everyone. Happy Saturday to you.
Today I want to share a page I made for Chris' When We Were Young challenge at Art Journal Journey. My theme for today's collaged page is games of all types and kinds.
When I was younger, I loved to play board games. Clue and Life were favorites of mine, as well as card games like Go Fish and Rummey. As I got older I added Cribbage and what we called High-Low-Jack to the car game mix. In fact I still like to play games, but my husband isn't a big game player so I don't get to play as often as I would like. As for sports, I was never a very good athlete, but I did enjoy skipping rope, playing tennis, and riding my bike, but I haven't played tennis in years. I'm not sure I would even be any good at all now. I have always been a walker though, even as a kid, and I've always loved to swim, even if I'm not a very strong or particularly graceful looking swimmer. The past few summers I've been swimming laps at my MIL's place on the lake, and now I've got my husband and his sister swimming with me. I feel like such a trend setter-ha ha.
I made my page by inking the background and using a book page as my base. The images are ones I had in my stash, and I did have to color the boy as he was black and white. I stamped the black stitches across the bottom of the page, and I added the little foamy flowers.
And let me wrap up my post today with a few more photos from TurnPark Art Space in western Massachusetts.
There's a disco style ball hanging with a chair nearby. The reflection in the mirrors was pretty. I tried to get my face to show up in the squares, but this is the best I was able to photograph.
The park space was long and narrow. On one side was a little river or big brook and then this rocky cliff. Just beyond the cliff was Mass Turnpike, Route 90, a big highway. At first I noticed the traffic noise, and then I got wrapped up in the art and surprisingly I didn't notice the noise any longer.
There was some art connected to the river, like this golden body floating.
And we never did figure out what exactly this next piece was, but I am guessing, something that was supposed break down over time.
There were a couple of fun ceramics exhibits too. I really liked these little houses.
And this next piece looked messy at first glance, but it did photograph great and made me appreciate it more.
The mixed glazes were really great.
And I'll finish my post with this interesting piece. I believe it was called Hunger.
I hope you haven't been bored with all these sculptures from TurnPark Art Space.
Have a great weekend.
