Visual review

Sienna is a freestyling scrapper in the making - she hand-cut this flower out of paper without even drawing it first, and I was so impressed! Then she coloured it in and posed for me to photograph it, hilarious.

Last week I made a massive Thomas the Tank Engine out of cardboard for a skit / comedy night put on by friends of ours. The Thomas act was for all the kids, and this version of the happy blue engine went to a friend who is, um, 7 years old or so, and has loved Thomas for AGES, so he was very happy.

A couple of weeks ago, when Hayley and Caden were here for the weekend, we did this family photo shoot in the backyard. I set up the tripod with the composition and settings I wanted, and we used the remote control to actually take the shots. Couldn't show anyone straight away, as one was for my parent's 30th anniversary last week, we had a pic of the 5 grandkids printed on canvas for them. More of the shoot is on Kell's blog.

Last night I made this little canvas 'Island', which is about 4 inches square on a 1.5 inch deep canvas. This afternoon I made 'Listen', which features a line from a short story my friend Rosie wrote when we were 16 or something. Really like this painting.

My 'Feel Good File' article was published in Scrapbook Creations 48, and I have put it in my Scrap In Style portfolio and in my flickr, so you can check it out if you like!
