Last week I shared with you my trip to York. I have been playing with some of the photographs I took while walking along the walls.  Nobody but my DSis guessed what I took photographs of.

                        Yes it was the worn paving slabs on the wall walk. 

It got me thinking about erosion and the photographs I took quite a few years ago on the beach in Whitley Bay. I've had a search for them but they could be anywhere so I'm afraid I can't show you the one I am thinking of. You could imagine lovely sandstone rocks with water eroded pits in it. they can be found in so many places including the lovely sandstone pavements at Malham Cove. Do a Google search and you can see what I mean.

I was playing with magazine papers, Gesso and Koh-I-Noor paint and had a bit of a disaster when I stacked them all and they stuck together! The top paper however pooled and I took the heat gun to it and got these beautiful markings.

Could I repeat the marks on the salvaged wreck of my other papers? No not on these ones but I did get some lovely marks after adding more paint and drying again. They look a bit like intestines

You can see the markings more clearly on this paper
