i've been watching this event for a couple of years now ... the first year, i didn't know what it was cos i was still new at blogging ... last year i wanted to join, but i remember reveal date clashed with some festival, Chinese New Year i should think ...
it so happens, this year, OWOH is smack right in the middle of Chinese New Year too, but reveal date will be way pass it ... so i am excited to be able to take part this year ... and since it's gonna be the last year, i really must do this :)
so HI THERE!!!
my name is Luthien ... and you probably would have guessed it, yup ... i'm chinese ... well, malaysian chinese that is, becos i hail from the country of eternal summer, MALAYSIA :) i know it has been snowing everywhere, and ... i so WANT the SNOW!!! ARghhhh....
i am a little silly ... but essentially, i'm a dreamer :) i live in middle earth most of the time (only occasionally returning to Malaysia ;) i have 2 beautiful daughters ... Llara Kaye is 5+ and Maia Fae, my little preemie is reaching 4 months already!! and she's now 4kg :) woohoo!!
i love to make things ... i dream them and then make them ... from handbound books to jewelry to housewares. i dabble in all sorts, polymer clay, acrylics, paper, metal ... but my love for now is mixed media and assemblage. and rust! i am experimenting with (organically) rusting my own objects for my assemblages. and it's such a lot of fun! i am inspired by old world romance, uncharted voyages and adventure stories. i am in love with found objects, distressed surfaces and rusty stuff. i believe in magic, middle earth and elves.
wokie ... that's me in a paragraph :)
and now ... i have here 2 things i wanna give away to 2 people :)
It is said that when the Age of Man begins, the elves would fade and return to the Ancient West. Athelia is inspired by the Grey Havens, the harbor where the last of the elves of Middle Earth would embark on their final journey home to Valinor.
Essentially a mixed media piece :
- The pendant is made by me, using several different materials namely polymer clay, aluminum wires, color coated artistic wires and acrylics. The clay bead is au-natural, wet-sanded smooth and buffed to a matte-satiny sheen.
- The cord combines ocean jasper beads, non tarnish silver coated wires, fibres, metal caps and spacers.
* tell me if you want it long or short when you win this :)
Altered Alchemy Cards ...
This is a set of 6 blank cards, laser printed on high quality textured cardstock and comes with 6 pieces of A5 envelopes. The images on the cards are images of some of my previous/current work with mixed media and assemblages.
all you have to do is to be an active blogger, leave me a comment and a way to contact you (email works best :) and wait for 17th Feb ...
