NORMAN! @normskidog This week’s challenge is the pawfect antidote to Mondays. 64 Million Artists are pawsitively furtunate to introduce our newest team member, a labradoodle who goes by the name of Norman. Norman (naturally) loves to get creative, and his favourite hobbies include exploring new places, chewing and making friends. However, his absolutely favourite thing to do is to give absolutely everything around him a good sniff, and this week he challenges you to get creative with the scents and smells around you. Over to you, Challengers… Get creative with scents! What do you have around you that you could use to create a new smell? You could have a go at creating a candle, a perfume or aftershave, or an aromatic meal. Your creation can be as literal or conceptual as you like – get messy in the kitchen and garden, or design your dream scent through recipes and drawings. Whatever you create, Norman is sure to love it and give you his wag of approval (sorry, that was ruff…) #dogsofinstagram #64MillionArtists #ScentsOfHumour This week’s challenge is the pawfect antidote to Mondays.
