Flink chain with magazines
I tried out folded link chain from an old National Geographic magazine. These have plenty of glossy coloured pages. After a quick trial I realised that I would need to cut and sort a lot of magazines to collect enough colours, so I set that aside (for a rainy day).
This was an old Smallholders magazine. As I began to fold I began to see that there were plenty of shades of green, so I folded the links to make the most of these colours.
Folding a quantity of links is quite rhythmic and I found that my mind wandered… occasionally some words caught my eye from the various adverts and articles. In hindsight I would have jotted down some of the more intriguing words as they could have made a good poem…
You can’t tell from looking at the end result that it contains sheep, pigs, cows, llamas, chickens, bees, barn owls, vermin control, lots of red tractors and more…
