playing

Sometimes the need to just play for half an hour is too strong to resist. An old cork, a wooden skewer, some thread, paper and an ink pad were the required ingredients.

That, and an open, non-judgemental mind, a little imagination, and some fun can be had.

It's like woodgrain! How I wish I had thought of it last year when I was trying to achieve something similar.

It's good to play.
