It’s a problem, but…they’re sooo pretty!

Sometimes I make them too pretty; making me hesitant to actually use them for their intended purpose…

Oh, the irony, making an art journal into an art piece so them I can’t make art in it…

I can’t believe that worked! 🤩

I can’t believe this worked! I used an old roll of Aliminium Foil hidden at the back of the kitchen cupboard to make this DIY book cover!

So easy: I layered the foil, embossed it, painted it, applied accents and other fancy stuff. Perfect and oh, so cheap DIY!

Painting the Acrylic colour base directly onto the Aliminium Foil embossed surface;
Rubbing on metallic accent colour; use multiple shades of Gold (ranging from Champagne Gold, Aztec Gold to Old Gold) to add depth;
This moulded dragonfly is created with Hot Glue in a silicon mould; sprayed Black and accented with Golds as well.

I am still in disbelief this worked!!!

Knowing thyself…hmmm, if asked, how would you, truthfully (please remove your rose-tinted glasses 😎), describe yourself?

A description that would allow ‘others’ to know you; to really understand, what it means to be you?

No? I couldn’t either…because such knowledge is frustratingly elusive. This intrinsic awareness of oneself, exists just beyond our grasp.

And yet, knowing this, I embarked upon this maddening perusal, of trying to ‘know’ myself; scrutinising the darkest corners of my ID. All research, for my next artwork; the oh, so dreaded, self-portrait.
