I only have 10 days to go in this project – or perhaps none if the world ends today, according the Mayan prophecy, which today’s design is inspired by.
Today is a very exciting one for me – my husband and I settle and move into our first house! So to celebrate us moving into our own ‘castle’ I built a sand castle for todays design.
A bit of an abstract one today, playing with the number forms.
I used brown string wound around wooden skewers to create the type for todays design, which I think worked quite well. Plus the finish line for this project is fast approaching, with only 2 weeks to go now!
Todays type is made out of some kiwiana bits and pieces: flax, chocolate fish, gumboots, a lamington, kiwifruit, weetbix, jandals, a fern frond, a swandri and a pukeko.
Including today, there are only 12 days until Christmas, which reminded me of the “12 Days of Christmas” song. So inspired by that I’ve designed a typographic partridge in a pear tree.
I’m only just starting to get into the Christmas spirit now, so todays lettering is made out of tinsel (pipe cleaners).
I remember when 11/11/11 came around last year and I was thinking about this project, with this day in mind. It’s come so fast, and this won’t happen again for close to another century now, so here’s a simple repeating pattern for 12/12/12.
I’m posting this one quite late in the day, as I’ve been out collecting different shades of sand and dirt, then sifting it, to create todays design – sand in a bottle. This was a true experiment and my first time ever doing anything like this. I would have loved some time to practice, but that’s just how it goes with this project. Also only 20 days to go now!
I’ve created little pom-pom creatures for todays design, complete with moving eyes!
