I love the fishing nets with their great colours and textures.
There's a whole area where the nets are spread out, not sure if it's to dry or they've been abandoned.
I loved this below, it looks like an enormous necklace. The circles are old car tyres cut into circles with holes in the middle.
The fishing crates too made for very interesting colour and texture.
I couldn't resist collecting some of the flattened, beautifully coloured pieces of rope on the ground, they will end up in a journal or collage.
A friendly seal visits the harbour.
Where we stayed there were some magnificent bougainvilleas growing, with the most beautiful magenta and orange flowers, well they're the leaves actually, the flowers are the tiny white centres. I couldn't resist trying some echo printing India Flint style, only I didn't take her book with me, so I was working from memory. I bundled and steamed the 'leaves' then left them to dry a couple of days, I know I must have missed a vital part of the process as the colours blurred rather than printed, now I'm home I'll read what I should have done.
The results, not very exciting but they can still be worked with.
Finally, I completed another journal while I was away so I hope to have it on my Etsy over the weekend.
More pictures of it in the next post.
Thanks for all of your lovely comments in the last post.
