a present for Anita

The other day I decided that we needed to make a present for a friend of mine. I wanted all of us to contribute, and I wanted it to match Anita's personality - fun, outrageous and brighter than the sun.

We started painting, did some handprints, then some gluing. Well, Lola glued, and Andrew pulled things up (what was in his reach).  I loved the idea of layering more and more 'stuff' over the top of everything - and giving it a really textured look.

At the time of making it, I was channeling some of the inspiration that I saw in this 1000 journals documentary a few weeks ago (a great watch if you find the time).

The final product was a bit of a mish mash - but it was definitely full of love.
