i could honestly watch this gif of ava forever. it’s just so satisfying to see that cute little tongue! i’ve been seriously getting into gif-making lately. the technical aspect of it is relatively easy, but it’s time consuming and i’ve quickly come to realise certain things work better than others.
i’ve been working on making some cinemagraphs too – they’re kind of like a gif, but more like a subtle moving picture ..if that makes sense? either way i’m sure you’ll be seeing moving images here from time to time.
on that note i’ve been going out and filming little clips of flowers in the breeze, and anything like that, that catches my eye. i’ve learned in this short time it’s better (easier) to use things that aren’t moving too much if you want it to loop easily. any gif/cinemagraph makers out there have any tips? if so, let me know! naturally i always want to take a bit of nature home with me so i plucked a bit of lavender poking out of someones garden.
i also found an amazingly vibrant pink bush of hydrangea. always makes me happy to see so much of it this time of year! you may have already seen this if you follow me on instagram. also, does anyone think hydrangeas are becoming a ‘thing’ lately, or is it just the time of year?
i noticed i had a little money in my paypal, and since i rarely treat myself, i bought some lovely things from jen collins and dianne tanner. you should check them both out because they’re both talented ladies. you should also give them your money for the same reason, but also because i’m pretty sure they’d appreciate that. i also found this lovely tiny little bottle in a vintage shop that’s opened up on my road. i just liked the label if i’m being honest with you.
what have you been up to this week? tell, tell!
