Enjoyed an exhausting, weird and wonderful day on the coast at the alternative Folkestone Fringe Festival with geek Heather. From dress-up portraits to ringing giant 16th Century bells on the seafront, from derelict railway art installations and a wall covered in scratch card art – to hidden Tracey Emin treasures. A memorable, well-walked journey of creative discovery!
For my heart art, I’ve used a photo that I took of an art installation by Jonathan White called Rare Love – it was one of mine and Heathers favourites.The day started out a bit grey and I shot it from an abstract angle to enhance the erie atmosphere we experienced at that point. I’ve adjusted the curves/levels etc in pshop a bit and cropped into a jaunted heart shape to reflect my overall feeling of the day.
Todays been such a grey and rainy day I wanted to use some yellow roses but I don;t know where the chains came from…the I had a breeze through Phoebe’s cool heart blog and saw her chain hearts…maybe that’s where they came from!?! thanks for the subconscious inspiration there lady! x
I used to make this funny little bookmarks when I was a kid, where you unfolded them to reveal a hidden message. I made a super-sized heart version today. I used unfamiliar tools too, my new super sized marker and and pink posterman biggie 50 marker – you can see them here.
My mate Megan is a treasure of a friend and after leaving her to make her way home on Friday night I was instantly compelled to doodle this big jewel heart xx
