Wonkey Donkey

Last weeks beer brewing post and the donkeys that are now back on the beach inspired this fun beer page (grin!).

As I’m still in recycling mode, I created this page using an old Beer Festival Programme, a poster and a fun Wonky Donkey hand pump clip; this was a lovely reminder of the local Beer Festival that we normally volunteer at every year, but of course, for obvious reasons, it didn’t taken place this year.

To start, I pulled the Wonky Donkey sticker off the front of the hand pump clip and arranged it onto the page with the other collaged pieces which were torn from the beer festival programme. The beer glasses and festival wording were cut from a poster and I coloured the middle pint of beer with a black marker to darken it as I always enjoy darker beers. The collage pieces were all edged with the Cold Grey Faber-Castell Big Brush marker and then stuck in place using a glue stick.

As T Stands for T Day I’m joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth and the rest of the T Gang with my art journal page – cheers and wishing you all a very Happy T day!

On one of our walks we captured the donkeys on the beach; donkey rides for the children are a traditional feature of seaside resorts here in the UK. The donkeys tend to have their names on their harnesses, so let me introduce you to Rambo, Teddy and Bobby (grin!).

Hope that you’re all staying safe and well!

Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

Here is a list of all the materials used to create this art journal page:

  1. Oh, yes. Hope our beer festival will take place this year, but…. who knows…

    Ohhh, so sweet. I might skip Rambo, though! My punch is a bit lame 😉
    Happy T-Day!
    To festivals returning.

  2. Donkeys look like very nice tame beasts. Do they give rides to children? That is all I know about them, rides for kids. In rough areas, I think they use mules, not donkeys.

  3. Donkey rides on the beach are interesting Jo. I have never seen that before, but then as I have never been to the beach in the UK, that makes sense. They are very cute in their outfits. And the donkey face on your journal page is adorable. Donkeys really are cute, aren’t they? I like how you used the brochure from the beer festival to make the background. It is a super page Jo; perfect for T. Hope your month is going well and you are having a great T day. Hugs-Erika

  4. Oh I used to love riding the donkeys when we were young, when ours were young and went on them I realised how much they smell , ha,ha, they don’t have them where our son lives which is. Shame as our GS would love a ride.
    I love your artwork with the donkey, lovely, bright and cheerful,my husband and dad loved to try the craft beers .
    Happy TDay

  5. What a fun page. It’s the name that makes me smile. Perhaps the donkey sampled some of this beer and got a bit wonkey.
    I love meeting the donkeys Bobby, Teddy and Rambo. When we lived in Bristol, our nearest beach was Weston-super-Mare. They have donkeys there to and they walk up and down the beach giving rides to children. We still have the expression: Up and down like a Weston donkey. (Rather than up and down like a fiddler’s elbow)
    Happy T-Day,

  6. I realize everyone is going ga-ga over the donkeys, but I am over the beers. I took forever reading each one I could see and the stout beers were what I was most interested in. I thought it was great how they were color coded, too. You put a lot of work into the names by outlining each of the names. This is a real gem. I also like how you colored the center one darker to show it is more than likely a stout. Thanks for sharing the adorable donkeys (yes, I did notice them, because they are cute) and your incredible beer inspired journal page with us for T this Tuesday, dear Jo.
