Art Every Day Month Day 5 - A mellow day for me.

Last night I was thought it would be fun to do different things everyday, to keep my blog interesting. I had high hopes of doing my creativity outside today but because of a snotty nose and sore eyes, I won't be venturing out there. I am going to keep it pretty simple today and create fractals.

What is a fractal?


fractal is "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,"[1] a property called self-similarity. Roots of mathematically rigorous treatment of fractals can be traced back to functions studied by Karl WeierstrassGeorg Cantor and Felix Hausdorff in studying functions that were continuous but not differentiable; however, the termfractal was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured." A mathematical fractal is based on an equation that undergoes iteration, a form of feedback based on recursion.[2] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractal

Here are my creations for the day


Starfish 


Elephants walking


Warmth


Brightening up your day


This one reminds me of a balanket we have.

If you want to give it a go, this link is to the best generator I have found so far:  http://www.fractalposter.com/fractal_generator.php ENJOY!

The Youtube clip of the day is a 104 YEAR OLD FILM CLIP "you are there" for a cable car ride in San Francisco ". This  film was "lost" for many years.  It was the first 35mm film ever.  It was taken by camera mounted on the front  of a cable car. The number of automobiles is staggering for 1906. Absolutely  amazing! 


My card for the day is Drink more water. Considering we are full of snot this card is very appropriate for us, drink lots of water and flush out the bugs.

Hi Denita
Just wanted to thank you for coming over to my blog. I think your fractals are great. The elephants are really clever, but my favourite is 'Brightening up your day'. X
These are so cool!!! I love the elephants walking.

If this is what you call mellow...so I can imagine what you would do at full speed...☺ Beautiful!

When a crystal (stone) breaks, you can see the same phenomena with out much technological information or tools. I have done jewellery and seen many stones break :)

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

Releasing my MADNESS! 

Getting more into it without distractions

Don't you love the texture wax makes!
I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
