Art Journal Sharing – On Your Bike!

I didn’t think I was going to have a page to share with you today for my Art Journal Sharing post. My mojo has been so concentrated on articles and house moving that there seems to be no more room in my head for anything else.

Well that was what I thought until around 6pm last night when I had a sudden urge to throw some paint on a page in my A5 repurposed art journal and around 30 minutes later I had this double page spread done.

It is a bit random and mostly lead by the fact I wanted to use this acid green and some fluorescent pink paint.

As the pages progressed the picture of the old bicycles just caught my eye from other pages in this re-purposed flier so a ‘Transport’ and ‘Cycling in London’ theme grew.

I used to cycle in London, but not on a Penny Farthing oddly enough – I know, go figure! But there are people who do cycle around London on Penny Farthings. There is the Penny Farthing Club for a start and then I think you can spot a couple of Penny Farthings on the Tweed Run as well. 

I think that little double seater in the bottom right corner is more my style!

Thanks for popping round for my share this week.

Catch you later Journalators.

    Fabulous pages, good to see the old penny farthing bicycles, my how much the bicycles of today have changed.

    Used to bicycle to work every day, 7 miles one way, it was fun especially in the rain as long as it wasn't too windy lol.

    TFS:-) xxx

    Lovely pages – impromptu works well!

    I used to cycle to work and back (funnily enough) but that was pre-MS and in 1973! It was a holiday job while I was training to teach.

      Thanks Shirl. There seems there are quite a few of us who used to cycle to work! Glad it wasn't on a penny farthing though!
