It is corny I know but I really like Valentines day. Here is a little painting I made for my boyfriend inspired by listening to his Radio shows on RRR FM. He and his friend filled in over the summer and did a fantastic show all about music being made outside of the cities and centres in small obscure places all over the world. They uncovered some very beautiful things including this one which I can't stop listening to. On one of the nights they told this wonderful story about exploring this tiny village in Italy via google maps and seeing some graffiti on the wall which when translated is what is in the painting. The fill in is on from the last week of December for four weeks on Tuesday nights 12-2 am under the show name O Tomorrow, have a listen its great the story about the italian graffiti is at the 1 hour mark.

Flutter by Pass the Parcel

I have wanted to make this version of pass the parcel for ages and haven't quite got around to it. So today I did. It looks so pretty and colourful and would be such fun to have at a party. The butterflies flap their wings when they are released from their layer and doubled with the element of surprise and anticipation it would really exciting especially if you were a child. I really like that it is such a simple mechanism that can be wound up and used again and again and inspires thoughts about nature and science whilst being really fun at the same time. The paper came out very nicely too with the confetti stuck on top making a 3D polka dot.
Snap one up!!
