Phew, this week went by so fast I didn't even get to post twice ....
Not that I have that much to post, but at least I managed to finish my mosaic mirror and my SOC piece for week 3 :-)
This is the mosaic mirror:
It's approx. 25x25cm (9,8"x 9,8") and made of handmade mosaic pieces, glasstiles and (pieces of) shells. Had fun doing this one :-)
Summer of Color this week had colours that I'm not too crazy about. Here they are:
This is my first layer:
I spread some lavender and a tiny bit of purple with an old creditcard, and then added some plum with a paletknife. Didn't like how it was looking so I put some cling wrap on top and let it dry. Liked it much better then. This is such a simple technique but gives great results.
Then I brought out the figures with grey ...
I like it better than I thought I would, but still, I don't think I'll exchange my oranges and yellows for this combination just yet ;-)
And this morning I got a really nice surprise in the mail: Lee from "Defining me" had sent me 2 minizines. I had no idea what a minizine was, and I really really like it. She sent me one about a camping trip with her parents when she was younger, and one about a trip to Paris. It's such a lovely way to keep memories of something.
Here are some pictures:
It's hard to get good pictures of it, but I think you get the idea. It's filled with Lee's typical colourful quirky characters and I love it. Thanks so much Lee!
Okay, that's it for now. I want to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving all those lovely comments. I realy appreciate you taking the time, and I try to get to everybody in return. Although sometimes I'm not able to leave a message, usually because of Google+. But know that I visited you :-)
Linking this as always to Paint Party Friday, and of course to Summer of Color. Have you had a look yet at all the gorgeous art in all those links? If you haven't, you should! I try to keep up but wow, there are a lot of participants in both challenges ...
Well, hope that you're having a great day, and that your weekend will be fun! See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥
