How to make Anzac Day memorable in lockdown
Anzac Day this year will be celebrated quite differently from many years in the past. The Australian War Memorial will go ahead with a private televised Anzac Day service on the 25th of April 2020. The traditional Dawn Service, National Ceremony and veterans’ march will not take place.
The Life of Colour team has a few found ideas and suggestions to help you to safely pause in your homes, in honour of veterans and the Australian spirit.
Poppy hill rock tutorial
Poppy flowers add the next element for our commemorative rock, using a red paint pen with odd small shapes which we will later add more details to. At the base of the poppy flowers spread some tiny specks of red to represent more scattered poppy flowers.
Fine detailing using the 1mm black comes last, starting with the centre of the poppy flowers then moving outward creating petals in assorted frilly shapes until all of the red has been included into the flower. Continue to place black outlines around the stems, hills and sun.
We hope you have a memorable Anzac Day with your family this year and thank you all for thinking of others and staying safe.
