As promised, I have a journal page for Linda's Creature Comforts theme at Art Journal Journey.
I was very lucky as a child to grow up in the country. We lived in a cottage, with a farm just a field away on one side, and another farm almost opposite. I may have mentioned that my dad worked on a nursery growing plants on a large scale and my brother and I had access to all of these places. We were also lucky to have a large garden and lots of pets but my favourite thing in the garden was the swing built by my Dad and Uncle - not your run of the mill swing, but one with large wooden posts and a good size seat, big enough for both my brother and me although he didn't use it that much!
Now, before any of you cheeky ones suggest that this is me and my brother, I know this image is more my Gran's era than any other time but this image from a set of cheap cards I bought years ago has just the kind of swing we had, err..without the flower garlands!
This image evoking fun, family times is my reason for linking to Art Journal Journey.
I'll be back soon with some more of what I have been up to!
Thanks for looking, Chris
