On my desk this week...

I've not been doing lots of crafting, as I made a load of things on holiday, of that, more later.

What I have been making is stop motion animation videos, inspired by a complicated train of thought which led me to the Photojojo stop motion tutorial.

My first video was this little one with the conkers and pebbles from my nice little shelf:

I like this one, I think I got the light right, but I learned that I need to make sure that the camera is tight on to the tripod.

This is my second video - I need to make a found object colour wheel for my art course, and I decided it'd be a good idea to animate it!

I like it, but the lighting in it is inconsistent, and I need much brighter lights, both for future videos, and for general crafting - both my craft lights are not working, so I've borrowed my bedside lamp.

Spot the point where I got the colour wheel a bit wrong!

Then, when I was editing holiday pics this morning, I discovered that I had enough pics of me jumping waves on Criccieth beach to make a tiny vid :)

Hoorah for lots of pictures!

How Cool! I love the buttons one!

Thanks hon :) It was good fun to make, but a lot of photos - about 350?

I love love LOVE that you animated your colour wheel, and the orange arrow, and the misbehaving greens, and 'the end' at the end... it just ROCKS! xxx Plus I think the lighting just adds to its charm ;-)

Cheers dears :) I've got to finish writing about pastels and ink and stuff, then I can send it off to my tutor, hope she'll like it.

I had a lot of fun making it - the naughty greens arose when I was cheerfully putting them in, and brain went "Ok, so you mix yellow and blue to make... green. But I've already done green!". Decided to have them move rather than delete and redo the pics.
