More words to come (aaargh, I’m sure is the general response) but love’s been on my mind today, this week and for the past few months.
Picture’s that revolve around the theme of the day are:
Which I painted on my iPhone using ArtRage app and a smidge of photo reference. You can probably guess which bit is from the photo. In my mind was how lucky I am to love and be loved by some amazing friends and family all over the world, something that does lift me up far higher than I would be able were I on my own. I also had it in mind some friends who I’ve lost contact with and regret the distance. Kafat and Chad spring straight to mind for a start but I’m a hopeless case sometimes with my head often in a sketchpad or a screen. Sometimes I don’t realise someone’s gone until it’s too late.
Marmite Love which I drew on an Interactive Whiteboard during 2 of my 3 breaks at college. Couldn’t resist, nor could I resist filming it which you can see here:
Valentine’s card for wifey which I made using Foldify app on iPad. It was the perfect size to contain (after a bit of resizing) a Walnut Whip as well, so went down quite nicely as a result…
Youth group last night* was loads of fun (apart from losing at the football 12-6 🙁 )
*Have I mentioned about co-leading a youth group for, now, 20 years on a Friday night. It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of although I have been walking into it in an increasingly dog tired state this year and some changes are a-coming to try and help that situation.
Anyhoo: I normally do the football room and wifey normally leads the craft room and we have a team of 7 excellent helpers doing the do, too. Last night, halfway through the football, we had a tuck shop break and I sat down/vaguely collapsed in a chair in the craft room and chatted to the kids there who were making decorated love hearts in anticipation of Valentine’s day next week (there were other things to make as well but they’re all at an age where that’s the most popular thing to make).
Somehow I ended up taking a couple of photos and, after group, I spent time editing one in the very lovely iPhone art app ArtRage. Hence this:
(ArtRage, iPhone 5S, no stylus).
Also photographed a Strawberry Chocolate love heart. Which are yum 🙂
(might have had a smidge of Snapseed on the colours 😉 plus Ollocip on iPhone 5S).
