More Cecilia

Herbario from Cecilia A.E. on Vimeo.


Once again don't know what's being said on this little video from Cecilia at Una Flor de Papel but it's all lovely anyway...

Abstract art



This is the piece of wood Ben uses as a substitute neck when he is re-finishing vintage electric guitars. Doesn't it have the most beautiful landscape of layers of paint on it?

Mysterious paper sculptures

Loved this story spotted at All Things Paper about an anonymous artist leaving his/her sculptures around Edinburgh as a homage to literature and books.

Sunprints


Recently we had some SUN and I finally got around to experimenting with this Sunprint paper I bought from the Melbourne Museum shop ages ago. I've always loved the look of cyanotypes and this was my first attempt to get something that looks a bit like them. I picked a few dandelions popped them on the paper and covered it in a piece of glass in the sun. The effect is not quite as clear as I'd hoped but they are still pretty.
I'm awfully excited about a light sensitive dye I bought online from America the other day, and am hoping I'll be able to do something similar to this on fabric with the dye...watch this spot.

Amy Rice and Spring


Loved this poster for Amy Rice's new show- it feels very Spring-like to me. Despite being struck down again with a nasty cold/flu thing (I'm usually not such a sickie) I have had a nice day with the sun shining and a super early birthday pressie from my Mum because she couldn't wait. (It's a schmicko potato masher so I can make gnocchi-yay!)
Sorry I can't make the links work properly to Amy's blog (the blogger people insist on changing things that worked perfectly fine before and now they don't) but her blog is listed on my "blogs/sites I love" to the right.
