Maggie Houston May 7, 2021 Dot to Dot
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.

Use Round Objects as Stencils Using a felt tip pen or soft pencil draw around round objects to create a spotty or circle design on your pottery. All pencil and felt tip lines when you paint your own pottery will disappear when your pottery is fired. This is because the professional firing is done at over 1000C causing the pencil and/or felt tip to burn off. You can then either paint inside the circles or leave the circles unpainted and paint the background. Areas not painted will go a creamy white when fired, how white the background is will depend on the type of glaze and bisque used. You can buy stencils with lots of different sized circles but you dont need these, you could just draw round some pots, bottles or lids that you have in the cupboard at home.
This Saturday marked the fifth annual International Dot Day, a day dedicated to encouraging students creativity and inspiring confidence. Classrooms around the globe have been celebrating this and last week with unique activities such as dot art, musical "sound dots," and using dots to help teach maps and math. Dot Day was started by teacher Terry Shay in Waterloo, Iowa, to celebrate the publication of Peter H. Reynolds childrens book "The Dot"; the book shares the story of a young girl named Vashti who is encouraged by her teacher to "make her mark." In the story, Vashti tries to prove to her teacher that she cannot draw by making a small mark on the paper while declaring, "There!"-Vashtis art teacher then encourages her to be brave and use her imagination to see where this dot could take her.
The great part about mindful drawing is that it is not just for kids! In fact, my wife is a Certified Zentangle Teacher and regularly sees the amazing benefits in adults who practice this form of mindful drawing. Just like meditation, mindfulness with a pen can also reduce blood pressure, reduce heart rate, and have long-term benefits with depression and anxiety. Have you ever found yourself just doodling on a scrap piece of paper. There is a good chance that when you are making lines or dots or shading with your pen or pencil, you are focused on present moment. Perhaps if the idea of meditation seems to be not your cup of tea but you could use to manage your stress; why not consider mindful drawing, doodling, or zentangle. The goal is not to make art to hang on your fridge but rather to give your restless mind a much need break from the endless chatter.
Its also a good idea to have a larger one, about the size of a sheet of paper. 9 inches by 12 inches is a good size. Most papers these days are acid free, but if you have a choice, I suggest getting the acid free, because it will not turn yellow over time. I have a few drawings I made long ago that I wanted to keep, but the paper has turned yellow, because it wasnt acid free. So I suggest using it, because you may want to keep some of your drawings. I also like to get a pad of Bristol board. Thats like a heavier paper or a light cardboard. When you make finished drawings, you can use markers and felt pens on it, and they wont bleed through, like they will with lighter weight paper.
