I was going to make the Plane design for the 30 minute competition but then changed my mind and now
will be making the Love Heart design. Tried a couple of bases.

And also with just the Love and no 160 joining from the base, then the 160 in Red.
I prefer the Green and will make as above.

A few more of the room back drops, I think it was me holding the camera at an angle and not the Circus sign that made it look wonky.
