A dare

This is my latest effort for Dutch Dares challenge blog- this time its a sketch and I thought it was a great one for using the many photos I took this week. We are due to move back to the UK from the Netherlands in the summer so I am trying to document some of the ordinary things about living here. I took loads of pictures of bike seat covers this week on a day out in Amsterdam- I don't feel so embarrassed about taking the photos there- I can pretend to be a tourist but at home in Hilversum I feel a little ( make that a lot) self conscious.

there are loads of different seat covers you can buy or get free but often people use a carrier bag on their seat to keep it dry in the rain- of course I had to take a picture of that too.

This is the page that follows the sketch
but I had so many photos I made it into a double page spread instead- this is the second page
And this is how they look together


  1. What a great idea! And such fun seat covers! Love the grid paper and all the journaling!

  2. How fun is this! Such an orignal subject, I think from now on I'll start to look for those colorful covers too and I love to see how you turned my Dutch Dares sketch into a spread. Great job Karen!

  3. Thanks for playing along again Karen! I LOVE that you created a spread AND your fun topic!

  4. Hey that's cool! I love giving myself a theme when photographing and even ugly things (like garbage cans) can turn into interesting and fun photosubjects. I hope you continue to share some of the 'ordinary' things you document in the coming months!

  5. What a cool LO did you made with the sketch! Thanks for joining again!!
