Oh boy it's hot!!! Surely we have to put pressure on those companies and countries that are doing nothing to combat climate change. TV reports of drought, failing crops and fires in Europe, USA and other parts of the World are showing a changing picture of what our lives are going to be like. I'm sure that you, like us, are doing your bit but until those that are creating vast amounts of wasted energy are joining us we don't stand much of a chance to change things.
Sorry, rant over, I have another journal page...
little Antoine (the image is from a French magazine)is learning to ride his bike, he is hoping to have the stabilisers removed soon. He goes out every day to ride in the little alley outside his house. The Tour de France went through his town and his parents took him along to watch and from then on he has wanted to take part!
It's now 2022 and Antoine has retired from his job as physiotherapist to one of the Tour de France teams but he still goes along to watch the final stage in Paris and to meet up with old friends.
I used grey and green inks onto white for my background using Aall and Create stencils. I added a circle of gelli printed paper that I 'stamped' with one of the stencils. I stamped a bicycle on a strip of deli paper and added part of a post card image of the Tour de France in 1960. Part of an Aall and Create diecut shows Antoines age in 1960 and I added some little scraps of washi tape. I printed the words of the Queen song with my little Dymo machine.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey for my "When We Were Young' theme.
We went searching for shade at Tatton Park yesterday.
We found some, but there was no breeze to speak of, today I am here on the computer and there is a lovely breeze blowing through the apartment. It's still hot but I might get something done!
Thanks for looking, Chris
