Some thoughts with images of animals and angels

My sister got me these nice cut outs for Christmas. They're very cute and nostalgic. Almost as soon as I saw them I knew that they would be perfect for some funky scanner collage wiggly image artworks.  I love the surreal, floatiness of scanner pics, and I love how they capture the details of skin and hair. They are fun because you can never quite tell how they will turn out, I think these will look really cool printed out on transparent paper.

Unlikely Style Icon: Christina Cook Lee 🌈

I would like to kick off my blogging come back with the first part in a series I'm going to call Unlikely Style Icons, because let's face it, we don't all get our fashion inspiration from Vogue and Instagram influencers. For me at least, it's found in places a little more...spontaneous and unexpected. Like, for example, a playlist of 72 catchy as heck children's Sunday school songs featuring an abundantly enthusiastic lady wearing every single colour of the rainbow with a beaming smile and this fantastic blonde bob hairstyle. Hi, Christina, if you're reading this, you are my new muse.

New beginnings

A mildly edited note written on my phone at 1am on 31st December 2018:

When I was 15 years old I started a blog. I was on study leave for my GCSEs and wanted a space to share my creativity on the internet. I read a lot of blogs at that age and eventually they inspired me to just go for it after much consideration. 6 years later and I still have excess creative energy that for some reason I feel compelled to share with (mostly) strangers online. I still like writing about my feelings, I still take too many photos, and I still want to be a blogger. I’m proud of my first blog, I kept it up for many years with only the shared family computer and, to be fair, I did produce some good content and I made friends with people across the world in the comments section.
