This was fun to make. I have an eyeshadow palette I'm not getting much use out of right now πŸ™„ and I crushed up some colours and mixed them with PVA glue to make paint 😊 The scan doesn't capture the metallics, sadly - it's much more sparkly IRL!

modernist poetry 

One of my favourite poets is Hilda Doolitle (known as H.D.) Here's the first part of her defiant "Eurydice":

I who could have slept among the live flowers

so for your arrogance

and your ruthlessness

where dead lichens drip

dead cinders upon moss of ash;

Just rewatched Laputa / Castle In The Sky, which has been my favourite film for as long as I can remember.
