Sugar and spice

Today I watched a video of Christopher Hitchens recommended by Been There Done That on Twitter – I respect what they share and gave it a go. Some bits did loose me, but I connected strongly with his views on humanity, self-belief and women and their power  – the last 30 seconds of his talk is stunning…

‘Think for yourself, much more happiness, beauty and wisdom will come to you that way’.
Christopher Hitchens, R.I.P 13 April 1949 – 15 December 2011

Combine that with my focus of my webinar for the Webheroines Conference in January and you’ll get quite a girly heart art this evening.

Thanks for your guidance and support today Keri and congrats on being featured in the Design Week blog! whoop whoop!

I’ve mixed up some left over treats from Crafternoon Tea and some bits from my artbox. I stitched pink lace to illustrative tracing paper, added a pearl button and stuck to an oldy-worldy-bodice pattern:

Young hearts run free

I just made this up as I went along…so its quite an abstract heart shape. I started off thinking of superheroes and a what a heart super hero would look like and this is what happened.The character could do with more devlopment of course, but I quite like it as it is.

The circles certainly remind my of Anthoy Burrills Sunset over waves, but everything else…well your guess is a good as mine – me being a bit free…!
