The weather forecast was good and we agreed to meet up and spend some time there!
Of course I had seen photos and film on TV but I still wasn't prepared for how I would be affected by this place and the statues staring out at the Mersey.
This morning I was so keen to get on with a journal page but as Wendy (our assigned HKA) was in my craft room ironing I decide to print out some photos onto some fabric canvas that I have had for ages.
This afternoon onto a background that I prepared when we got home last night I made this for Gill's last day as hostess on Art Journal Journey! Her theme of 'Nature's Wonders' inspired me so much and I was sorry not to have had more time to join in!
So, where is the Nature's Wonder? It is in the barnacles that have formed over theses statues over the years.
A slightly rushed page but I really had to do this!!
The rectangles down the sides of the man are the barnacles close up except that the canvas alters the appearance slightly so here they are to show you better.
You can see where they have not taken hold in parts on this man!
I will post more photos another day - hubby and I took loads!!
For now, we're going out for a family meal tonight so I must go and get ready!
Thanks for looking, Chris
