Twin Celtic Cats – a creation in many forms

HI SISTERS ! BEAUTIFUL EARRINGS FOR A NICE SUNDAY! XX

Liza Paizis Original Art and Jewelry

A few months ago I posted about a wax carving for my new jewellery design. You can read the post here.

The carving was cast into silver master copies; those were used to create a vulcanised rubber spin cast mold for centrifugal casting in lead-free pewter.

I have made these pewter castings into a range of adorable cat jewelry items and accessories.

The two little twin cats are sleeping with their tails entwined in a Celtic style knot. i was remembering how my two cats used to sleep together…. This is one of the smaller jewelry designs I have attempted – I like it’s simplicity and the fact that it can be translated into quite a few different designs.

Cats remain for me the most delightful animals to depict artistically ~ whether in paint, sculpture, jewelry or etching. Their enigmatic beauty is so peaceful…

Fun with Tumble Dyes

HI BEAUTIES! TODAY WE’VE GOT THIS WONDERFUL TEXTILE ART. LET’S SKETCH AND WEAR!

TextileXplorations

Tumble dyes are water based, heat set, permanent and washable. You can use it on fabric, ribbon, lace, silks, dried flowers, baskets, wood , paper and more. You can apply them by spraying or painting them on the fabric. Combine them with stencils to have lots of fun.

To use the sprays simply place your cloth on a level surface. Place the stencil on top. Shake the bottle of Tumble Dye well – this is important to ensure its all mixed up.  Spray the colour onto the cloth.

 

 

 

 Tumble dyes are great for tie dye and of course scrunch dyeing in a tub. Simply place wet fabric in a tub. Scrunch up, spray with a colour, move and scrunch again then spray with the next colour. use at least 3 colours to create an interesting fabric.

 Tumble dyes are a great way to create your own unique…

Painting trees with…

HI BEAUTIES! OUR SISTER MYRA LET US TO ENTER INTO HER WONDERLAND WHERE SHE MAKES HER ARTWORK. ENJOY!

watercolor, tempera and artist tape.

Treasure Tree Hill

Sometimes life can be overwhelming…okay ALOT.   I could be a big worry wart and make myself sick… but where would I be?  I’d be lost. If I’m lost then how can I be my best? I’ve always had a creative imagination. My best is embracing new ideas even if it means I leave the most comfortable place. The weird AMAZINGNESS is that art gives me comfort.  Ideas excite me and fill my days with pizzazz.

Here’s what I mean. This blogger had an amazing idea to paint trees using artist tape. She painted a winter scene.  I had to try this, only I painted a scene for my book.

Step 1 apply artist tape on paper. This was fun because it’s a new idea!

Insieme / Juntos

HI SISTERS! HERE WE’VE GOT THE TRANSLATION OF THESE LOVELY WORDS. ENJOY.
“How much nostalgia they accompany the emotions.
How many infatuated dream In the field …
New sentiers to travel always on the rise
because there is no taste where it does not get tired.
Give me your hand, Follow me and I will follow you.
I will know how to be your guide, for an hour, a day or all life.
Let’s build happiness together, brick brick brick
and in the middle looks that are desperate, caresses that are full
and spaces that are occupied. Because love understands to do never to undo”.

vaninarodrigo

Quanta nostalgia accompagnano

le emozioni.

Quanti sogni infranti nel cammino…

Tutte strade da percorrere

sempre in salita,

perché non c’è gusto se non

si fatica.

Dammi la mano,

seguimi e ti seguirò.

Saprò essere la tua guida

per un’ora, un giorno o tutta la vita.

Costruiamo insieme

la felicità,

mattone dopo mattone,

con sguardi che si cercano disperati,

con carezze che vanno colmate

e spazi che vanno occupati.

Perché l’amore se ne intende di fare

e mai di disfare.

Monzon__Innamorati-al-Tramonto_g.jpg

Immagine dal web

Cuànta nostalgia acompañan

las emociones.

Cuàntos sueños infrantos

en el cammino…

Nuevos sentieros por recorrer

siempre en subida

porque no hay gusto

donde no se fatiga.

Dàme la mano,

sìgueme y te seguirè.

Sabrè ser tu guìa,

por una hora, un dìa o toda

la vida.

Construyamos juntos la felicidad,

ladrillo tràs ladrillo

y en el medio

miradas que se buscan desesperadas,

caricias que van colmadas

y espacios…

HAVE A NICE DAY!

Violet's Vegan Comics

For chapters 1 to 10 click here 🙂

Chapter 11 continued from yesterday:

He smiled broadly as he considered how fortuitous this outing had turned out to be; how lucky it was that this week of all weeks he’d needed a wheelbarrow.

***

Nan and Grandad loved to go to car boot sales, antique fairs and flea markets.  They would drive for miles to get to them and rarely a Sunday went by without Nan acquiring a ‘new’ old plant pot, or handbag, or garden bench, or record or book or who knows what.  So, when Luke decided he needed a few tools for his allotment – a rake, a bucket or two, and a wheelbarrow – he asked Mum to ask Nan if he could go with them that weekend.  She said yes, as long as he behaved himself and didn’t eat or drink anything in Grandad’s car, or…

Porto on my mind

HI BEAUTIES! TODAY WE CAN ENJOY THE SWEET, VELVETED AND DEEP VOICE OF CESARIA EVORA WHILE WE’RE ADMIRING A SIMPLE BUT GENUINE SKETCH OF A LIGHTHOUSE. HAVE A NICE DAY!

Adri's Palette

As I look out the window dark clouds are gathering over the pristine sky. The weatherman says fall is here and heavy rains are imminent. And yet I don’t want to let go of the bright sun, the long, warm summer nights and of our walks to the ice cream parlor. Out of pure nostalgia I took out my phone and started to look at the photos we took during our vacation to Porto. It was a weird feeling. Weird, because it just happened, yet it seems so far away. Also, because it feels so foreign, and yet just like home.

Felgueiras Lighthouse, Porto, Portugal

Portugal is this strange mixture of something exotic, something that you cannot quite put your finger on, and yet something you instinctively understand. I can’t really put it into words – and not just because I don’t speak a squeak in Portuguese – because it…
