I spent the day photographing people, objects and Art in Melbourne.
Most of my day was spent in Flinders lane and Hosier lane.
I absolutely heart Hosier lane, it's one of the most inspiring places in the heart of this city!

I love looking at life through the lens, it gives you a different perspective on life and it captures those micro moments that you might miss out on when you are not looking carefully...
I love hearts, but I love my camera equally as much.
I love baking gingerbread, they're never discriminant, they come in all forms: man, woman and shapes.
I love making shapes in shadows, it's so liberating!
I love it when my shoe reflects a half moon, who would have thought my new boots had such power!

I played this song this morning and it cheered me up straight away, gosh I love the Plain White T's!
With any song that I love, this song will be on continuous repeat today...

I believe Music and Arts/Craft goes hand in hand. I often draw inspiration from music for my work and I definitely listen to music whether I am thinking of new designs or cutting up patterns.
I am a huge fan of MGMT and I love their original version of "Kids", but when I heard Ben Lee's version I fell in love with this song even more than I could imagine!
Here is Ben Lee's version, he takes a more calm approach to this song as oppose to MGMT's melodic beats. This song is on repeat over and over again when I am working....
Music is good...for the mind, soul and heart!

I've also started working on some Lion designs. I've only stitched up their faces, it's still work in progress, once they're done these lions will be roaring from hunger!
More creative spaces can be found at Kristy's!

So I just heard about this brilliant concept called the Sketchbook Project which is run by Art Host Co-op.
Here is the concept:
- If you choose to participate, each artist is sent the same blank Moleskine Cahier sketchbook.
- There's two rules:
- Rule 1: the book must be used in some way you can not send it back as an empty book or a different book to Art House Co-Op.
- Rules 2: the sketchbook must stay within its original dimensions.
When submitted, each book will be given a barcode so they can be catalogued into The Brooklyn Art Library system. Once the books are catalogued, each artists will be able to track where on the tour their book is viewed and how many times someone pulled it from the shelf.
Here's a video from CNN highlighting the brilliant concept and why you should get involved.
The books will be toured in various libraries around the United States.
For more information on the Sketchbook Project, just click on the link.
So will you be participating and show the world your creative minds and skills? YES!
