Lana Flowers May 7, 2021 Dot to Dot
Since its humble beginnings seven years ago, Dot To Dot Festival has gone from strength to strength and has served up sets from bands that have gone on to see incredible success. In the past, this has meant shows from the likes of Mumford & Sons, Florence & the Machine and The XX - but this month it focused back on some lesser-known acts hoping to break through in the same way. Taking place across three cities - Bristol, Nottingham and Manchester - the event has a pretty ambitious mission statement. In Manchester alone, it uses seven different stages at venues like The Ritz, Sound Control, The Deaf Institute, Zoo and Joshua Brooks, but while this is probably something of a challenge for the organisers in terms of business liability insurance, the backing of sponsors Fred Perry probably provides some small comfort.
However, the temptation to stay within the walls of the fabulous HMV Ritz to see the very much buizzed about Dog is Dead was too much and proved not to be a disappointment. After a quick bit of tucker over at Oddest - a lovely little Oxford Rd bar with a fine selection of ales - it was time to get into the evening of the festival. The highlights of the night, which ran into the very early hours indeed, had to be the always entertaining The Drums at The Ritz, the incredible Lulu James over at Joshua Brookes and finally Islet at the Sound Control live lounge. It has to be said, that as the music shifted the latter hours at the club, things may have gotten a little blurry for some of us - but after a day like this I think its fair to say we deserved it.
Do not correct your childs first attempt at drawing a person. Give them freedom to explore the visual and tactile experience without your input. Preliminarily, he or she may only draw a couple of lines.Give a lot of praise. Too much interference by you will hurt creativity and confidence. Their person may have only eyes, a dot for the nose and a straight line for the mouth within the circle. You may prompt by saying, "Where are your eyes?" Prompt with the other parts of the body. Cut around the drawing, and hang it up for everyone to see and give your child a hug and praise. Soon, your child will draw himself or herself, and then other people in the family. This is a big day! It is better to buy a blank drawing pad than a coloring book. They will learn to control their hand and fingers to hold the crayon and they can try to color their drawings as they draw, and have more control when they are about five years old. Let them scribble until you see they want to go on to another task. Keep the time short.
So you want to learn how to draw cartoons? Heres some of the equipment youll need. Everything can be found at an art supply store or sometimes an office supply store, and it will cost you less than $20 or so. The first thing you will need is a basic sketch book. You can choose whatever size you want. Some people like to have a small one to keep in their pocket or backpack at all times. That way, if they get an idea for something, they can jot it down. Or if you are riding the bus or subway, or waiting in line somewhere, or see someone that looks funny and would make a great character, you can pull it out and start drawing them right there. (Dont get caught! Not everyone likes to be made into a cartoon.)
From designing for multiple fashion houses to a recent announcement that a make-up line is on its way to be launched soon, theres just no stopping when it comes to creativity for Marc Jacob. After enjoying immense success with his previous womens fragrances, Daisy being launched in 2007 and Lola in 2009, this summer it is time for a new lady in Mr Jacobs life. The designer has unveiled another creation from his kitty which is an addition to his girls Lola and Daisy. Dot, the new sister is an inspiration from the polka dot. Jacob told that dot is timeless and a pattern he always loved as he finds round shapes always beautiful. The designer added the new fragrance has a juicy, lush quality to it. The fragrance features notes of red berries, dragon fruit, honeysuckle, jasmine, coconut water, orange blossom, vanilla, driftwood, and musk. Top notes of the DOT incorporate red berries combined with pitaya fruit, known also as dragon fruit. The juicy and exciting opening is followed by a floral trio composed of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom, while a base closes with a trail of coconut water, vanilla, driftwood and sensual musk. An Annie Buzantian and Ann Gottlieb creation, the flacon is made of red glass and decorated with flowers and golden plate with inscribed name of the fragrance and of the brand Dot. The ad campaign features Codie Young looking wide-eyed in the Maldives is shot by Juergen Teller which will grace magazines in September. Marc Jacobs Dot will be available as 30ml, 50lm and 100ml eau de perfume spray; body lotion and shower gel.
To get coloured spots on a white background you can use ring binder reinforcement ring stickers. Again these are also readily and cheaply available from stationers. Just stick the reinforcement rings all over your pot, but instead of painting the background carefully paint the hole in the middle of the ring binder stickers and then peel the rings off when the paint is dry before glazing and firing. Stamping your Spots and Dots Instead of using your fingers at a stamp for dots and spots, your could use other round objects by immersing them in paint and dabbing them on your pottery. At craft shops you can buy various sponge tools called dabbers and daubers which also make round spots. Other household items you could use to stamp spots on your pottery are cotton wool buds, the end of your paint brush or the flat end of a pencil. The object does need to be clean and free from grease for starting each colour. With the cotton wool buds it is best to use a new one for each colour.
