Weekly Photo Challenge: Found Art

Primary colours of spray-painted graffiti on an old brick wall framed and reclaimed by green ivy leaves, and dappled with sunlight – my take on ‘found art’ for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge 🙂


K is for Kaleidoscope

K is for Kaleidoscope

The first time I saw this design I immediately thought of the old kaleidoscope toys we had as kids – decorated cardboard tubes with an eye hole at one end, and a rotating plastic cap on the other. When you looked into the eye hole and turned the cap round and round while holding the tube up to the light, lots of different coloured snowflake shapes appeared and disappeared again as the little plastic chips were refelected in the cleverly placed mirrors inside. Oh, I had such fun playing with kaleidoscopes as a kid! 🙂

Grown up colouring in is my alphabetical theme for this year’s Blogging from A-Z Challenge 🙂

J is for Jellyfish

J is for Jellyfish

I used metallic gel pens in muted shades to colour in this jellyfish and surrounding frame, leaving the entire background white. I do find my mood always affects how I decided to colour in any particular design – different days tend to bring different ideas and motivations.

For this years April Blogging from A-Z Challenge I’m colouring my way through the alphabet with a variety of designs – so far, so good! 🙂

I is for Imaginative

I is for Imaginative

Not sure if this is a flowery-tailed fish, or a fishy-headed flower, but it’s a really imaginative design, whatever it is! I like the artistic-licence-loose-link to reality in many colouring in designs, what’s wrong with adults having a little bit of childhood fantasy in our oh-so-grown-up lives? 🙂

I’m offering up an alphabetical adventure in grown up colouring in for this year’s April A-Z Challenge – thank you for looking! 🙂

H is for Hearts

H is for Hearts

I’ve coloured in quite a few heart shapes in my time, especially flowery hearts – they seem to call to me somehow… maybe there’s a soft, soppy romantic hearts and flowers girl hiding underneath my practical, no-nonsense emotional suit-of-armour exterior ❤

For this year’s A-Z Challenge I’ve decided to try colouring in my way through the alphabet 🙂

G is for Geometric

G is for Geometric

I’m not usually drawn to angular, geometric designs – but I coloured this one in especially for this year’s A-Z Challenge, because to be perfectly honest I couldn’t think of any other ‘G’! 🙂
