I've never been good at taking instruction and I certainly can't count with my fingers, the number of times I've been warned not to reinvent the wheel. And although this always seemed to really frustrate the people around me (especially teachers) I wouldn't be who or where I am now if I hadn't done all of this self exploration. This drive is what keeps me exploring and experimenting and finding new things, that make me go WOW. There is a never ending list of things I want to test and tinker with and I am so so happy to have learnt the skills I have as they allow me to keep exploring concepts that interest me.
These little petris are all from a clover. From left to right we have the full flower, the leaves, parts of the flower (I'm calling them seed heads but I'm not a biologist) and the flower casing 😍😍. I kept seeing these on my drive around the Swan Valley in late spring and decided to finally stop and pick some ( because, well they are weeds, I think and they looked fluffy so I wanted to know more) and fell in love. I wouldn't know that such beauty was growing right on the side of the road and further more what it looked like in resin if I hadn't tried to reinvent the wheel again.
These are still available as a set if you would like to DM me or as individuals which will go online on Saturday.
