Local Loop

The 'Loop' of my title is the London Outer Orbital Path; the 'local' is the stretch from Rainham to Purfleet which I walked back in April (and blogged here). I've tried to scrap it previously but I took so many photos that I was overwhelmed by the task of picking which ones to feature. This time, I thought about the walk without looking at the photos and mentally picked out the highlights, the things I would talk about most if I was describing the route to someone else. I came up with just four, and then scrolled through my photos and added a fifth.

I used Miniowner's August sketch for my page, but I stretched out the paper layers in order to use my five photos in place of just one on the sketch. I've also moved the circle across in order to frame my photos better.

The third prompt of The 20 Project (Shimelle's latest online class) was about making more use of our inks. I rarely do much other than inking the edges of my papers, but here I've inked the background circle and the lines of triangles (using homemade masks).
