Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Georges Fouquet

💎👁️‍🗨️ HI DARLINGS! UNFORTUNATELY, JEWELRY IS ONLY FOR PRIVILEGED PEOPLE, BUT I ADMIT THAT SOME OF THEM HAVE A TRULY ARTISTIC DESIGN.

Humoring the Goddess

The brilliant French master craftsman Georges Fouquet (1862-1957) created  sublime works of jewelry art in both the Art Nouveau and the Art Deco Periods.Hailing from one of the great French jewelry houses, Fouquet is regarded as a master jeweler in the strictest sense.His father Alphonse Fouquet started the jewelry house back in the 1800s, and Georges continued the firm until around the 1930s.Fouquet preferred a more geometric approach than his father and belonged to the school of important designers who directly translated contemporary art in jewelry, building up designs from geometric shapes, making use of lacquer and enamels.The renowned master workman of Art Nouveau jewelry also created some of the finest Art Deco Jewelry in the history of jewelry.With the arrival of the Art Deco movement in the 1920s, Fouquet, always on the cutting edge, took his jewelry to a bolder, more geometric look.

Beryl bomber detailing

👩‍🎨 🧥 🌺 HI DARLINGS! SOMETIMES WE DON’T NEED A CANVAS. WE ALSO CAN STROLL OUR OWN WORK.

velosews

I’ve been asked to put up some more detailed photos so you can see how great this fabric is. Oh and the pattern is really interesting so detailed photos help you decide how you’ll use this fabric for future projects.

Detailing in Beryl Bomber dress

Have a close look at the zipper. You’ll find this print is a good one to practice some pattern matching.

When you raise the pockets to suit your arm length, the waistband elastic will overlap the pockets. Let the pockets as they are designed. Just have fun with this dress if you’re a petite like me.

When you add the elastic for your wrist, decide beforehand if you’ll be wearing the sleeves full length or sliding them up to ¾ length. That will determine how long the…

Vogue: The Elitist Dream for The Masses | A R T L▼R K

🟡🔺WELL SISTERS, ART CAN BE A MIGHTY TOOL TO TRADING. HERE, A RED TRIANGLE AND A YELLOW CIRCLE ARE THE KEY. THE GEOMETRICAL MYSTICISM THAT PROMOTES ART BY KANDINSKY.

NZ finds pt2

🏛️🧵INDEED, DEAR ARTISTS! SOME WORKS WITH THREADS DESERVED BEING IN MUSEUMS TOO.

Having to take time out gives me the opportunity to get inspired by the creativity around us today including the creativity that’s already come and gone. The photo above is from a collection at the local museum in Napier.

These two pieces were also here in Napier.

This local piece was hand stencilled.

The techniques used in the past are certainly ones I’ll try to use in the future.

This dress uses a combination of laces and silk.

Lately there have been some changes in sleeve silhouettes so I thought you might want to see this dress as a historical example for a future design.

More finds soon.

I&P Exercise 5.1 Project 8 Review and Refine

🧵 HI SISTERS! ART CAN USE PAINT BRUSHES, PENS, PENCILS, ETC BUT SOMETIMES ALSO USE SUCCESSFULLY THREADS.

Exercise 5.1 Review
Having reviewed all of my work from parts one to four I have collated the ones that were good subjects for further reflection. I grouped them together in a spontaneous and intuitive way and I then considered how they relate to each other.

A Return to Bluework

💠💠💠 SO TRUE SISTERS, FLOWERS ARE WONDERFUL AND IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT STUFF ARE MADE WITH.

Under A Topaz Sky

It’s been a lovely Christmas with all the children together for a couple of days. Now the older two have gone back to their respective homes, it feels more like normality and I’ve started to think less about producing the next meal for the hungry hordes and more about the New Year and where I want to take my stitching.

I’ve largely managed to free myself from the need to finish everything I start, but as well as the unfinished pieces that have served their purpose, whether that’s, “What happens if…” or, ” Given it my best shot but I still really don’t like it…” I still have partly worked projects that I would like to complete. So my focus this coming year is to work with what I have, start new things when it’s appropriate, but be more mindful about moving on the stuff that is still ongoing. In…

Small Things, Big Differences

🌸🌸🌸 HI DARLINGS! WE ALL KNOW ART IS COMPOSITION, COLOUR AND SHAPE, BUT THIS WORK ALSO REMINDS HOW IMPORTANT RHYTHM IS.

Beads, Charms, Wire...

[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge]

It’s Inspiration Station time again! (This is where my sister and I throw themes at each other for inspiration, and make art.) It’s been a while since our previous post, but I’m glad we’re still on.

This time’s theme is from my sister, and she came up with a number of items to pick and choose:

Inspiration Station – August inspiration
Gosh, she has really made this image look good!

Let me see, I’ve used –

  • Blue
  • Altenew Adore You stamp set
  • Carabelle Studio stencils
  • Dylusions stencils
  • Doodle

I thought this would be my chance to try out some gold embossing, but I guess it wasn’t on the cards this time. This is the art journal spread I made –

Small Things, Big Differences | Art Journal | Anita

I started on the background of the spread with gel printing using blue acrylics and a Carabelle Studio stencil. I then used a Dylusions stencil…

Sketching

📝 HELLO BEAUTIES! WHEN WE SKETCH WE SHOULD BE AS SURE AS WHEN WE WRITE. OUR STROKES, WHETHER WE WRITE OR DRAW, ARE UNIQUE AND PERSONAL.

fashion mom blog

When you’re beginningtolearn to draw, picking up a pencil is generally the first thing you do. But, that’s where many of us stop; we learn how to doodle, but don’t go beyond the basics. If you’re unfamiliar with drawingwith a pencil—beyond stick figures or scribbles—there are sketch techniques that you need to know.
