A little while ago, maybe a year or so, a friend bought an old Ladybird book, Making a Transistor Radio. Inside were the usual evocative illustrations including a great colour block image of radio resistors, an idea hatched but it has taken till now and a big birthday for my friend James for me to realise it.
The design is straight from the book, I love radio but have no idea what it means beyond a colour coding system. That doesn't matter, James knows what it means and I like the way it looks. A mini quilt, mug rug, man mat- whatever, it is on the wall in their family kitchen with some other makes from me in a mini gallery.
The colours are from a Kona rainbow charm pack, the gold and salmon 'Tolerance Colours" are from vintage scraps. I have no % symbol in my stamps so I improvised, need often makes for inventive moments. Versacraft ink as usual for the stamping.
The back is a funny Japanese text print all about String theory and other rather weird references. The whole thing is only 9" x 7". Fun to make and well received. The same book had this , what a great little source of inspiration.
