Made this picture today with Dan’s play dough 🙂
Dan made these while under lockdown in March – they were shapes he made for maths and he converted them to little robots that can be used as boxes as well 🙂
While walking along Hastings beachfront with my nephew, I asked him “How do you know if the past and future exist if you can’t see them? Where are they?” and he replied “Don’t be such an idiot, Grace!! just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there!”
D’ye see, after allowing a little space for the light to spread, nothing resting?
Day into night, and through night into day the remote, Unseen
Eventually to be visited:
After being chased, through night, through darkness, successful in the end, the wind and sea allies;
Touching the heart
Made this poem using an exercise in a journal/ notebook called “THE STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST JOURNAL” by Austin Kleon. I love it! It seems to inspire and release creativity 🙂
Kirigami means cutting paper in Japanese (kiri = cut, gami = paper).
It’s a fun and easy activity to do with children and you use them for decoration or glue them on to paper or card, etc.
You can also use the cut out pieces for something!
Sometimes I like to make one where the kirigami is based on, for example, my whole life and each cut represents an event or relationship. Then the folded part represents your life in time and the opened pattern represents your life in eternity. Other ideas to try are things like just one day, a relationship or an idea!
