The sun has got his hat on - hip, hip, hip, hooray!


Angel of the volcano

This is an old collage I did for Boomerang which they didn't like either. They wanted one for their schools project which seems to have fizzled out as far as I know. I did one before of a skeleton which they accepted but I don't think the boring old biology teachers liked it much - far too bright and garish for them! I stuck the angel on when I got it back.
Today we went into town for provisions - food for my sister and brother-in-law who are visiting tomorrow for a couple of days. Found a They Might be Giants LP in a charity shop for £1. I like their quirky songs (some free mp3's at their amusing website). Also a strange CD called Weird & Wonderful which caught my eye, also in a charity shop. But it turned out to be a horrible Andrew Lloyd Webber soundalike and not remotely weird or wonderful!

These collages of yours are amazing Michael!
The angel of the volcano makes me happy with a twist.
I like the brightness!

Thanks Sebastian, I always wonder who's looking at these things. Nice to get positive comments always. I definatley tried to brighten this up for the geography lesson but having the coal mine inside the volcano confused Boomerang probabaly!

Thanks for your positive comment Sebastian. Always good to know who's reading my blog and looking at the pictures.

These comments dont seem to be working for some reason?

A beauty. Think the angel added just the right finishing touch. Bah Boomerang.

Thanks for the nice comment Sebastian. Not sure if this comment will work. Blogger seems to be playing up for some reason.

Testing...Testing...Ha! Oh, you'll probably find a few repeats of my comments too! The Blogger got blogged down on 5th Street I suppose.
