As a big fan of Christmas, for me the excitement and preparation begins in October (yay the Christmas ads started today!). I spotted unpainted nutcrackers at Spotlight last week. I made a few adjustments and have done a slightly different take on the traditional nutcracker (it's not very Christmassy...)
I stuck newspaper to some parts of the nutcracker and then painted over the top - having been inspired by the children's book by Rona Rupert "All Everest's Birds" which uses newspapers to create many of the images.

I'm doing another bootcamp and I working on a children's book called Rosemary's Revenge/ Rosemary's Ridiculous Revenge/ Radical Revenge... Not sure. Having done the skeleton of the story I see some very strong similarities with George's Marvelous Medicine. ARGH! But anyway, here are some images.

On the way back from Mt Ruapehu I spotted this spraypainted onto a fence - I thought it was cool
I also saw this T-rex made out of driftwood which I really liked. I didn't take this photo- credit goes to http://www.forgottenworld.co.nz/.
