Let's December Daily, Counterfeit Kits Card, Project Life, Piasknownica and Our Beautiful World....

 
 
I cant believe we are two thirds the way through November!
How did that happen already?
 
 
 
I've got my cover done for
 
 
It's been a bit of a process....  and I've enjoyed every minute of it!

'to use bits and pieces'
(always a great excuse to use up leftovers!)
 
Just loving Christmas anything at the moment!
So here this little card fell together...

Project Life Week 42
Again using two different colours for two sections for two different subjects...
One the art room and garden,
the other - a few things that happened in week 42
 
 
 
 
Art Piasknownica- Photographic Challenge
http://art-piaskownica.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/forogra-z-nagroda-makro.html

foroGRA z nagrodą - Makro
Macro -  image of something up close, which is lots (many)
 
In the art room.... from oil painting, the scraping off and dumped on a palette by spatula.
Many colours, scrapings, one on top of the other - side by side...
Macro....
(Z pokoju Art .... od malarstwa olejnego, zgarnianie i po cenach dumpingowych na palecie!
Wiele kolorów, odłamków, jeden na drugim - obok siebie .
 
I remember looking at the discarded paint blobs - it's shape and colours, moving me to pick up the camera and see how it would turn out under macro... it seemed to me to be 'sculpture' in itself... art unto itself...
I've picked the first one for the photo challenge... not sure if another is better.. you decide....
 
Oil Scrapings #1

 
Oil scrapings #2


Oil scrapings #3


Oil scrapings #4
 
All discarded... eventually dried up and thrown out....but captured for a moment.....

 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
 
Week 21
http://our--beautiful--world--365.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/week-21-eyes.html
 
The subject this week is
 
'Eyes'
 
Paige did a study on 'Eyes'  for art
She drew, painted, sculptured, mixed media, crafted eyes... all year!
Here's hers... (she took this herself......heaven only knows how!)

OMGoodness, your posts are always filled with so many amazing things! Wow! Love, love, love the cover of your December Daily! I adore the tall skinny shape and love the door shape. That wreath is just fabulous, too. Great card and PL pages, also. Loving the trim on that card and love how you separate the highlights of your PL pages with color. That is really clever, and so pretty. And gorgeous photos. Who knew paint globs could be so beautiful?

Delightful album!!. I haven't done mini albums since June this year and now I'm all inspired!!. Beautiful gunk, I must say :). One time, I used acrylic paint gunks on my mixed-media journal pages for texture. Beautiful shot of the eye! LOVE. Thank you for this wonderful post and played along with us at OBW!. HUGS.
