Tension sheet (theme)

The inspiration for today??s texture photo came when I saw a man in Chichester this morning selling bubble guns ?? plastic toys which shoot out lots of bubbles when filled with soapy water. It got me thinking about the texture of bubbles and it suddenly came to me ?? I needed some tension sheet! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term it is simply bubble wrap ?? the plastic sheeting used to protect things when you??re packing them up for posting. However, in our house it??s known as tension sheet ?? the name given to it in the British TV sitcom Red Dwarf on account of its stress relieving properties when you pop the bubbles!

      This is a prime example of how you take the ordinary and make it special.
