Wordle: Keep Calm and Carry On

The open meadow
Still as still can be
Nothing moving
No blade of grass, no tree
Still as statues
In a mad mad world
Through the stillness
Snaking left and right
March tiny orange ants
Almost hidden from sight
Unaware of evil
And lies and other sad facts
Of a mad mad world
No torches needed
They weave from A to B
Working hard
A brotherhood of ants
Foraging, collecting
And carrying on
In a mad mad world

Feel GOOD!TimeWords


It’s Debbie’s One Word Sunday once again, and this week the subject is Time. Something I find I run out of very easily, but today I found the time to trawl through all of my old photographs to find this animated photo I took of The Clock eons ago:

I then also found the time to modernise the image a little, and make it appear like an old faded photo (well, I think so anyway!) by adjusting the colours and light slightly. The editing took away the animation, but is a still photograph of a clock timeless?

Or does it contain all of the secrets of time trapped within that instant that has been captured?

ATC: Phoenix

I’m back to being creative again… well, a little anyhow.

I’ve decided to venture on to a new series of ATC creations. ATCs (or Artist’s Trading Cards) are small artistic creations that measure 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. The last time I created ATCs was during July’s World Watercolour Month, when I did them using the medium of watercolour. Goes without saying really.

This time around, however, I’m not limited to watercolour. That isn’t to say I won’t use watercolour, as I probably will, but with ATCs anything goes, as long as that anything fits within the boundary of the tiny blank canvas.

For today’s ATC, I’ve used pastels, gel pens and gold and silver marker pens. ‘Phoenix’ is the first in my Mythical Beings and Imaginary Friends series.

This is my first time at using pastels, and I found them quite easy to use and very smudgy! I’ve never washed my hands as much as I have whilst creating this little picture, but it was all fun. It passed a couple of hours as I got carried away with it, which is good.

Both images on this post are a little misleading as they don’t actually show the real size, but as the series progresses you’ll see that they really are ATC size.
