The exhibition was called 'Colour' and is still on until December - if you do get the chance to go I am sure you will not be disappointed.
The museum is a fabulous building and although we spent some time there we just kept our viewing of galleries to a minimum! We think we may go back one day!
This is the front of the museum
We took a couple of photos before we went in to the Colour exhibition
This was across the road from the museum - these banners are all over Cambridge advertising the exhibition
Obviously no photos were allowed in the exhibition itself and it was all in a very low light, which to me added to the display. The books were fabulous, you could see where people through the ages had turned the pages of the gorgeous tomes! Oh how I would have loved to see more pages!!
I only had my handbag notebook with me but I sketched a few patterns so that I could try my hand in my journals!
For this page I added some torn tissue tape and coloured the page using the Autumnal colours of my Coloursoft pencils.
I cut up a flyer that I picked up and then drew some of the patterns around it! I had taken a small kit that included a couple of metallic pens. I added the blessing chit chat word this morning.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey for Valerie's theme of 'Indian Summer - Golden October - Autumn' with my page (and it's Autumnal background) about an Autumn exhibition.
I will be back with more photos of our trip and another page soon!
Thanks for looking, Chris
