This course isn't a structured one where we follow strictly written instructions each day, this one has lots of creative ideas, technique videos and prompts and we get to choose which of the activities we wish to do. One of the selection of videos to start us off was on making bubble backgrounds and this is the one I thought I'd give a go today. After getting over the shock of the price of a bottle of ink (£6.49 in WHSmiths!!) - I got it somewhere else for £4 - I prepared my table outside in the sunshine.
I've got quite a few pictures to show you of the creative process:

These pictures were taken just after I'd added the bubble bath mixture to the ink in the tray. Love the way the colours separate, it looks like a painting!
Two more of those:
..and after blowing through a straw, here are a couple of pictures of my results:
(Think I prefer the 'preparation shots!')
Oh, and this was the 'disaster area' setup in the garden!:

Apologies if I'm not with you as much as usual, our house was burgled yesterday and my laptop has been stolen! :-( We still have a family home computer, but all four of us are in competition to use it!
Thanks for looking and for any comments,
