The first post featuring a reader’s spirograph artwork!
Raffaella (a.k.a. Norma as she calls herself in our comments) is a fifty-year-old amateur photographer living in Italy. She writes:
I’ve liked Spirograph from childhood, but I bought my first Spirograph just two months ago. From Amazon I bought a Kahootz Spirograph, but I wanted more and bought from eBay a Spirograph Plus (from Canada) and won an auction for an amazing Cyclograph (from the United Kingdom). Now I’m waiting for my Wild Gears 🙂
Unfortunately, in Italy Spirograph is hard to find.
Some words about my little wheels (in Italian “ruotine”). I draw them with Stabilo Pen 88 and paint them using Stabilo Pen 68
(after reading your post I bought Stabilo pens , thanks). Then I paint again with Tim Holz Distress Ink Pads, because I like the vintage look. Finally, I paste them on trays. I’ve got two trays hanging on my walls and I love them 🙂
I like Spirograph: it’s relaxing and exciting at the same time.
And i like your blog as well: it’s very inspiring for me.
We can inspire each other, so I’d be very happy to showcase other people’s ideas and artwork on this site. Contact me in the comments if you’d like to participate.
