Christmas nears ...

As Christmas nears I feel like sewing something for the tree... I want to make my own decoration. I already have some other pieces from the last years. I will take pictures of them when my studio is ready (yes, I know, this is already a kind of litany of me but now it's really happening, I think I can move in by the end of this week.... gosh! am I happy!!!)

This star is stitched on linen with a Colback/Sizoflor wreath around the angel's face -in gold and silver-
I stitched some knots with gold thread and made a second wreath of pearls around the piece. I'm doing 8 of them to hang on the tree. They are about 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" (13x13cm)

Third collab for The Library

This is my third collab for The Library.

I'm sending it to Jade Pegler in Australia.

The book is "Love Poor People's Bread" and I used some Photoshop to illustrate the theme.

Another collab

This is the second collaboration for The Library I'm doing. I'm sending it to Cecilia Levy in Sweden.

I did a second book of this series from "The Lady and ...", I had the same book twice and I thought it would be nice to make a second try of the possibilities.

The stories I write in the books are a reflection of my psyche. The world that inhabites me (i also inhabite the world but this is something else...) is made of pictures without much relation in between. In the night -between dreams- I see pictures evolving. these pictures never tell their story or they have an incomplete story. they're just pictures that come and go. they told me not to ask for a complex story, they are more like life, everything happens and nobody has a clue why...

The Library

I'm doing some collaborations in The Library in Flickr. It is a very interesting idea of Alex Itin in IT IN
I'm afraid I changed somehow the rules... You are supposed to get rid of all the pages and only paint the 2 inner covers... I always get involved in a 3D thing though...
