By the time you read this, if all goes well and we have the wind behind us, we'll be reaching dry land and heading home. So it feels absolutely right to be posting this Cityscape page I made for Get It Scrapped.
"A chance conversation with a scrapping friend has made me realise how closely connected the cranes are to the way i see our city. usually I think first of the rows of little red brick terraces, the yellow Tower Block of the hospital, the dome of the City Hall. But what is it we can see from every point? What lifts us up and tells us we are home?"
If anyone asks, I like to tell them that I was born in the city, brought up in the country, and now I seek out the sea wherever I'm able. I've made homes close to all three at one time or another; but honestly? I'm a city girl. My heart lifts when I see our red brick. It's mostly Victorian here, our place, terracotta, sandstone, iron, industrial: full of stories of good hearts and hard lives. It will be good to get back.
You'll find more ideas for Cityscapes at Get It Scrapped. I made mine a roughed up patchwork of brick walls and skyscrapers, with washi tape towers and buildings cut on my Slice. And a ship? Of course a ship. it's Titanic Town.
Back soon! I'm looking forward to catching up!
