The theme of next CQ Suitcase challenge is 'Childhood Memories' and I'm not the only one that has been looking through old photos ( in my case it was about time they came up from the damp cellar for a sort) Wish I could still touch my toes!
My parents didn't take too many photos ( a surprise since Dad did his own developing at one stage and Mum took photos when she went travelling in Europe in the late 40's )
As most photos were taken on day trips/holiday which when we were younger was at the seaside ( Lake District later years) it fits in quite well with seascapes I've been making.
Not that you ever saw the sea at Southport - are you still allowed to park on the sands?
And I'm not sure I'd approve now of jumping off dunes knowing how it disturbs the ecology ( and might scare a Natterjack Toad!) But what fun it was!
My chief memories of holidays are that Jill , our Staffordshire Bull Terrior, came too and used to have a wonderful time digging holes burying stones ( and rolling in a dead seal on one memorable occasion!!)
I still haven't used the printed fabric that I produced on Jae Maries course at CQ Summer school last year that reminded me of Bamburgh Castle from Stag Rocks so I've been playing in Photoshop to see how I might use photographs in a non-obvious way. Maybe introduce some colour in the stitching?
