Road and Pavement Works

Collected pavement markings for road/pavement works that were due. I really liked the use of bright oranges and limish greens at the bottom to pinpoint drainage points. Quite powerful colours. 
More on this later.

Tacked It

Photographed my wall before carefully taking down every inch of collected and found materials that appealed to me through colour and so on, to start fresh this year coming up and try to keep it as a monthly thing. Collect, stick, photograph and then peel off at the end of the month. Could this in itself become a live board of inspiration? A collectors board of stuff, graphics, colour, prints, textures, looking at materiality within the everyday?

I miss have an artist's studio which is seperate from coming home from work and just resting (not that I have time for that - nor does anyone really). If I struggle to find time to create, paint or stitch, I can at least collect?
Maybe have it all stitched together into some kind of mixed media collage board by the end?

Windows Tile Glitching Moments

When I get a slightly colourful and line filled scroll bar on my internet browser or just when using a program on my computer, and then of course when my phone does this:
                                                                                                                Over here is how it should look
                Up here is how it looked when glitching

It's not done this in a while now sadly as I like the idea of the gradient, but those colours are a lifeless combination. Pop in some reds next time Cortana
