Top Ark Adventures

I seem to have accumulated many versions of the Noah's Ark image in various guises - some way back in the 80's painted in watercolour and gouache and more recently collage versions with cars, buses and many other unlikely craft being substituted for the typical vehicle of choice. Maybe a book will emerge from it - who knows! Mary Greg has some nice toy arks with damaged animals in the Manchester Art Gallery archive that she donated to. I did a couple of ark collages inspired by the broken animals- some with bandaged heads and legs, splints and plasters etc. The Hospital Ark and the Route Master Ark are showing in the Mouseion exhibition in Leicester at the moment.

K.K. No. 1

Happy Birthday to us! The Kollage Kit collaborative collage blog I started after the demise of Scrapiteria is one year old this week! This week's theme chosen by Ron Bookless is Number One and to celebrate we are pulling out all the stops and pushing back all the goes! Let's hope for another wonderful creative year of collage!
