Just to show that I have not been idle...




Some of my recent work...
Charms for a swap, quite similar to the ones I made before, but this time with a king's image. I tried to achieve a pewter imitation effect, so coloured in the baked Fimo stars with silver and black (then wiped it off) acrylics.

A birthday card.

An altered CD for a swap. The challenge was to use orange, yellow, lime and pink colours. I found it very difficult, so cheated a bit, there is lime, but it is in the back, and I used the dark green instead. lol My idea was to do an imitation of native American rugs. I stamped the native images, and then painted the surface with 3-d paints. The photo is really bad, but I already sealed the packet for posting.

J'aime bien ce que tu réalise, Lau. Étrange mélange d'icones médiévales surmontées de décorations... mauresques(?) comme, te recherchant, j'ai vu sur d'autres sites. Ici. entres autres l'«altered CD» me plaît bien! Mais je suis en manque de tes peintures, de tes poèmes et de ta prose. Tu as si bien effacé les sentiers que je désespère de trouver un chemin pour te retrouver... Je suis toujour au même endroit. Au bas du château Frontenac; même ville, adresse postale & tél (mentionnés dans les livres), mais nouvelle occupation et nouveau e-mail. Puisses-tu me joindre... A

Thank you for your beautiful words, but I am totally mystified who it is from, as it is not signed. Did I also erase a memory from my past? please enlighten me.
you can email me any time, if that was truly for me. I am not quite sure who Lau is, and if it is meant for me, but then it is my blog, lol.
