Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Art and Rust and Real Rust and A Birthday cake

Art Clears Away The Rust of Life

Don't you agree?

But then there is Arty Rust and there is real rust. Below is a picture of a rusted bit of metal that I picked up on the beach yesterday - look at the magnificent colours - they don't look natural do they?
I often look at the sky and think that if you were to be able to recreate the look exactly in a painting, it wouldn't look right - I think its the same thing here, we have been playing a lot with rust techniques on the course I am doing atm - all how we think rust should look, whereas in real life real rust can look like fake rust
I found quite a lot of lovely rusty bits on the beach yesterday - oh beach-combing is great fun, but I really should remember to take a rucksack with me... anyone remember my daughter and I hauling back virtually a whole car engine from a beach in somerset??
 No car bits here, but a very interesting haul....

It was a lovely day for a walk on the beach... Sun was out which meant DH and DS had their shorts on, I wasn't so brave! It was Marzie's 1st (or 7th) birthday, so a trip to her favourite place to have a walk was in order

and then back home for a bit of Doggy Birthday Cake..

Happy Birthday Marzie, you really are your Mums Best Friend x


  1. Totally agree Nicks!
    blimey I never see anything on my beach - can you leave some of it to the tide to bring down to mine?!!

  2. Wauwwwwwwww this is very very beautiful.

    Greetings Janny

  3. I should think Marzie is your best friend, thats a wow cake. Loving your finds on the beach......all I ever find is seaweed,stones and somebodys left over sandwiches.......not quite the same is it......... x

  4. Love the work you are doing with the rust theme, and I would be thrilled to bits to find the things you have found on the beach. Ejay. x
