Today I was inspired by a mosaic pattern that I have seen thousands of time – as it’s in our local high street. It’s not very loved and is completely taken for granted. I’ve tried to find out about the history of it but with no joy. So I’ve included a screen grab from google to show it to you – which explains my heart art design. My design make me think tribal ‘knitwear’ though! haha!
Today has been a manic one. I’ve collected our happy dog paddy from his lovely dog-carer Claire at Pet Au Pair (think superdooper-doggy-hotel+walkie-lover)..she is a jolly, inspirational lady. Plus my mums been staying and we took the boy to a soft-play where he spent most of the time between bouncing-uh-hum falling on the bouncy castle and rolling around in the ball pit. I”m sure our boy thinks he is part dog too…as he likes to get in the dog bed (with or without dog in there) and crawl around picking up toys with his mouth! I was a little concerned his first word was going to be ‘woof!’ but thankfully it was just a ‘Hello!’ instead.
So a colourful day all in all…if a little hectic.
I’ve created this as heart art as a vector artwork in Illustrator…
Today I took our son and dog to the muddy woods. They both loved it and it was a right giggle with the dog running around with sticks and the boy falling in the mud.
I have used a photo of our sons shadow in the mud to create this glorious heart art.
You can see some previous hearts I made on my original 365 mission with Paddy our dog as inspiration here:
What goes up must come down, and when they’re down…well they go back up. Loving from the bottom of my heart is the only way I know. Sometimes he drives me bonkers but I wouldn’t change him for the world, he’s my love, my ‘Grrrrr!’ my everything in-between – but most of all he is mine. I chose him and he chose me – together we can take on the world and we live for each other. I love my other-half :0)
I used Illustrator to create my fonts, take cover, Uncle Bob Shadow, Miama and doodles the heart line. Then I took into pshop and overlaid a photo of some graffiti I took when we went on our mini-moon to Lands End when I was 29weeks pregnant. I used some awesome brushes that I downloaded from brushlovers many moons ago…
Today we met up with a special friend I used to work with that is now engaged (I also met the lucky guy – he’s perfect!). She is an inspirational person to me & always makes me smile. So I have dedicated my heart art to her with jolly yellow thread & stitched them both a little swirl of love – congratulations Alice & Mike xx
