Creativity Challenge Submission #01

I made cameras for the great-granddaughters. They love them and took hundreds of photos with them on the first day.

These are made the same way as an idea in a post on AUSOM’s website except I glued wrapping paper to the parts before I heat glued them together. I also made a smaller lens.

This is an animation I created a while ago titled, ‘Oasis’.

Also an article about creating the animation, ‘Have Music Will Travel’. It shows how one can still travel abroad despite the current pandemic restrictions.

Creativity Challenge Submission #12

Our daughter sent me this photo of her grandchildren having lunch under a swimming whale. One of them is holding up a toy fish for the whale.

This is her story
“There were plastic container lids in the drying rack on the sink under the kitchen window catching the sunlight. They made a blob on the ceiling. One of the girls asked me where it was coming from. When I started moving the lids (4 of them) around I realised I could make pictures.
“I made fish and a stingray and then the whale appeared.
“After lunch, the girls played outside for about 1 1/2 hours. When they came back in they wanted to know where their whale had gone.”
