Golden Frame

I finished my sort of commissioned project and here it is in all it's glory:

Frame - detail

and a full view:

Frame

It's a frame I made from old newspapers, rope, old cardboard, glue and acrylics paint. It's really hard to photograph as it's painted with gold color which shimmers and shines and thus creates quite a challenge to work with. It's quite a large one too, a bit over 1m on one side and a bit less on the other one.

It was fun to work on and I can't wait to see it mounted.

Back From Vacations

Indeed, I've been away for a week but it doesn't feel that way at all. Time flies fast even when you are on holidays :/

Liberate Your Art CardSwap

Just before we took off, I took my cards for the card swap to the post office. They should reach Kat in a few days I think. Hopefully. The most difficult part was getting the printer to work decently. I'm so annoyed with our HP, it doesn't have a clue what size is, it's extremely inaccurate and to top it all, it loads paper slightly off to one side. But after too much printed cards on my desk I decided I'll stop being so exact and just mail them out. Wanna get one of the left-at-home-ones? Let me know, I'll gladly send you one with a happy thought attached to it ;)

Miss Lilly the Fox

I made my second little felted fox and I love her oh so much. I made a couple of improvements on her pose-ability so she can move her head and also her tail. We had a lovely photo shoot in our back yard right after the pouring rain and just before the sunset but hey, I needed the photos right away :)
