I'm sure if you live in the UK you have heard fireworks and seen organised events being held anywhere around this date! I have been hearing and seeing fireworks for over a week now!
My page today for Art Journal Journey is about an organised event as this is seen to be a better way to stay safe!
When my boys were little our house backed on to a dirt track leading to a Tennis club that held a Bonfire event each year to which we were invited.
I began with some Brushos, Infusions and Cosmic Shimmer Pixie powder.
I stamped the same two figures repeatedly to make a crowd and used two trees to create the Spinney by the tennis club. The fireworks are different sized spoke stamps.
Here it is from another angle to show you the shine made with a dry brush and gold paint.
My good friend Elizabeth has made a page that explains more about the Gunpowder plot.
She has used some songs I wasn't so familiar with but here are the words to one we used to sing, although the words I used to start this song are the words of my post title
Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.
By god's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.
And what shall we do with him?
I hope you are enjoying my 101 ways to keep warm theme - there have been some brilliant entries so far. Thank you for your support and Thanks for calling by today! Chris
BTW I am still without a Fridge or a freezer - some sort of mix up meant that the code I would have been sent to get a new one wasn't dispatched so I need a new one generating…which can't be done until Monday! Still smiling…but through gritted teeth!!
