I have a friend who is a cat lover like myself and it was a pleasure painting her cat Dexter. I have so much fun painting and find it very relaxing. It’s always great when you get a good reaction when the owner sees it and this was one of the best so far 🙂
I have been dreaming about a photo shoot of my cat and baby. I had the morning off mum duties so I took some pics and did a quick photoshop job. The pics still look a bit cut out as I am low on time but has its own look. P.s.. how hard is it to get a cat and baby to both do a good pose in 1 shot?! Lol… I had fun.
After 3 months I finally have had time to do something creative for myself after having Asta. I made this selection of earrings for my friend to choose from. They are made from cardboard, paper, washers, beads and whatever I had that looked fun.
I am really appreciating now the time to sit down and do something not baby-related every now and then, and hope to do some more fun projects soon!
Finally I have finished this sculpture. From 80 test tubes some wood and LEDs this is happily resting in my lounge room.
It took ages on and off to complete and the final product was much better than I was expecting. A big thanks to my husband for cutting the wood, helping me to construct the pyramid and insert the test tubes, making the plinth and being my general handyman. If I had made it all myself it never would have looked as nice and neat.
Things I would change next time is how I put the series of LEDs together. Some are in groups of two, three and four and this produced different strength lights. I thought the resistor would even it out but I was wrong.
Below is the final product and process pics are under that.
I love being able to technically design something first by hand, then on the computer and then to make it 3D.

all the bits
more sanding in the sun

this is the fun bit as it’s really satisfying seeing the LEDs light up
soldering the LEDs
teasting all the levels work electronically

hours of wiring with speaker cable, heat shrink and soldering LEDs
we made this! t turned out better than we thought!
I have nearly finished constructing my light sculpture made from test tubes. Just painting the plinth now, then I just need to put it all together. It’s looking nice and bright and all the electronics work yay! Finished pics to come soon.
I have been having a go of some fashion Photoshop skills through Skillshare. These two classes were great for updating my skills and refreshing my memory. It’s still all a bit rough but I’m having fun playing. The best part for me is creating and playing with the patterns then seeing them on a person.
The classes were:
