As you can see I had some fun with Gimp and the picture of the cosmo flower that I posted some days ago (it's natural colour is magenta/pink). The fairy dust is made with a star shaped brush. In Gimp you can compose your own brushes. Very interesting to do even if it looks like the fairy was drunk when she flew over that flower.
My son went to a "iron boy" event this afternoon and he had a good time swimming (300m), cycling (11km) and running (3km). Actually the whole class went there and they had to cycle to another village first before they could start. One could say they had a good warm up!
