Photo, Colouring Art, and Colourful artwork

I have had to take stock, as we seem to have bitten off more than we could chew. We have settled on a singular focus for this collaborative blog, and below is the first example of what is in store. My hopes of creating an interactive community were reaching perhaps a little tooooo high for me, and I was relieved and most happy to receive an invite to the brand new wePoets blog launched this weekend by Kira and Zoe. It fills a need.

wePoets Show It | An interactive community to showcase your creativity

Perhaps we will see you around there soon?

Meantime, when we go for walks, it is quite natural for us to take photos along the way. I am thinking of this as a start to a Travel blog, since it will be easy to keep it up when we start travelling further afield. Shaquin thinks of it as a Photography blog, and Tarina reckons it is an Art blog. So we are all quite happy. We are all pulling together on it, and it is much easier and within our capabilities, when loaded up with the other things in our life. Feels like a proper collaborative effort too. So here is the first offering.

Here is the Koru inside one of Wildersoul’s blank frames! If you use a graphics program such as Photoshop, GIMP, Paint.NET, then please feel free to mix and match frames and pictures to create something new to colour! The Twitterpoetry Ignite poem is an example of using a graphics program to edit a blank frame.

Have fun printing and colouring this blank frame, dive in and let your creativity flow. Wildersoul has a variety of circle frames, triangles, squares and more rectangles to choose from. And I will be posting my weekly favourites here at Dissolving Buildings under my explosive new nickname… Mmmm Wasabi… Hope I don’t get up your nose too much!
