inspiration avenue challenge - wish ...

ah ... it's been a long time since i submitted an entry for IA's weekly challenge. this week i felt i could do some crafting again and since i haven't been using my right brain for some time now, i thought to get my inspirations back by visiting my very talented frens at inspiration avenue :) of course i also needed some catalyst to jump-start my crafting engine ;) and what better catalyst than the weekly challenge!

wish ... lol!! i've wished for many things in my life ... and dare i say all of them unpractical and otherworldly! more of wishful thinking than wish i think ... *contemplates* ... well, i haven't changed much this time round ...

dare i wish to travel to a different place and time?

and when i do ... perhaps i can document my travels thru space and time in this handbound journal of mine ...

if i got lost, would this compass etched in stone direct me home?

and when i finally complete it's last pages ... dare i say that i've lived a life fulfilled ...

wouldn't it be great if a time and space machine really exist?

LOL!! let's get back to reality :) i had fun making this mixed media journal and weaving stories about it! it's a little larger than what i use to make, and i think 5x7 inches is a rather good size. the techniques are the same as my mini ones ... the pages are handtorn and made from recycle brown paper, the signatures are handsewn to a soft leather spine. the covers are actually mdf boards and the compass is made of air-dry clay :)

i hope you've enjoyed that :)

happy pimping! :)

i have been interviewed!!

after being inactive and resting for some time now (dr's orders... but no worries, nothing major :), i was delighted and excited beyond words to find out that my interview with ARTISAN CRAFT @ deviantART was published last night :) WOOHOO!!

deviant art is a fabulous site, and for those of you who have not encountered it ... you will be amazed at the visual feast waiting for you there. and if you appreciate fantasy art like moi, you will find the world's most talented fantasy artists there! it's also a site that you can showcase your work (any medium) and the people there are truly appreciative of good work.

i am so honored that the people from the artisan craft group @ deviantART find me worthy of an indepth interview :) i am so so excited as this is my first ever interview on a public site ... actually on any site :p

so here's the link ... if you have the time pls take a peek :)



hope everyone is having a glorious june!
happy pimping! :)
