Kiss from a rose

Sealhenry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel aka Seal was born in London, England, on February 19, 1963.
Seal, who is of Nigerian heritage, earned a degree in architecture before pursuing his passion for music. Seal likes a self titled album. He made his first full-length, self-titled album debut in 1991  and released his second self-titled album in 1994. This album included his grand hit, ‘Kiss From a Rose’ which featured on the Batman Forever soundtrack and became a No. 1 pop and adult contemporary hit. It catapulted the album Seal 1994 into multi-platinum status. Seal and the song went on to scoop the pool at the Grammys winning Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
Seal also received attention for being married for several years to supermodel and Project Runway Host Heidi Klum. Seal is no stranger to Australia through his stint on The Voice. He’s also rumoured to be dating Erica Packer. Lucky Boy.
I have gone for a rose motif to recognise Seal’s birthday. I was quite drawn to the rose made of water – it seemed both fleeting and beautiful. I have also been meaning to work on my diagonal bows – the look with the ribbon around opposite corners with the bow highlighting one corner. Today was the day to go public with my diagonal bow. It caused me no end of slippery satiny grief but  I think it is worth persevering for. I would call the completed wrapping look Power Ballad – big matchy colours and statements for a big themed occasion.
