OWOH from LISA, and two driftwoodangels

My first OWOH gift has arrived, -and it is wonderfull.
I won all this fabric rolls, from Lisa , Mud Hound Studio .Lisa is a fantastic artist, -creating the most gorgeus and beautifull books,collages, and mixed media art pieces.
Her giveaway, was this collection of fabricks, bands,buttons, rusty mesh, flowerspieces,
stone, ........, a wonderfull bunch of different oppertunities, for creating something beautifull .
When opening there was this beautifull card from Lisa, made with a collection of the most wonderfull papers, and with a sweet regard ,to me.

Look at this ,-so many pieces of beauty and possibelities for a new life.
Dear Lisa, thanks so very much, I`m so happy, and feeling very lucky to have won this
from you.

The last two dayes I started creating some new driftwood angels.

This piece I found on the shore where I live ,and fell in love with it, because of the holes
and different colors.
I added glass pieces from the water, an old netting ,around her neck, something normally used, in the netting to float--and---------

She enden up like this,
The other one, was made of a piece of wood ,also found on the beach,
beautifull with some rusted pieces on,-

The bird, is copied on fabrick and mounted with Mica, a
little nest with feathers are waiting.
Her hair is also old netting from the sea.

Wishing you a happy evening all, and sending you
hugs and love.

I just started An Artistic Mother's Group where we will be going through 12 projects together from Shona Cole's new book The Artistic Mother. Her desire is to help mothers find a to fit art into their every day, even if it's just a little something. I would so love for you to join us. You can read more about it on my blog; and if you're interested in participating, just leave me a comment, and I'll add you to the list.


PS If this is not something you are interested in doing at this time,or even if you are, maybe you could do a little blurb about it for me so that other artsy moms can join. It might be a help to them if they are looking for inspiration and/or an accountability group. We start March 6th, but anyone can jump in at any time. We will spend two weeks on each project. Blog about our progress and link to all of the other participants. Thanks so much for your consideration.

Lisa said...

Dorthe, Your driftwood angels are just as lovely as you! It's wonderful to think about things from the sea and beach..some of my favorite elements! Happy Day and Enjoy!

Lisa said...

Oh the driftwood angel is amazing Dorthe,
I wish I lived near you so that you could teach me some techniques, like working with mica. You are so lucky to live by the sea. We vacationed in California last summer & I collected so many treasures from the shore. My favorite was some seaweed that had the funniest bulbs on it. I am encasing it in resin. The eyes on the angel say so much. Wonderful.
The treasures you got from Lisa are beautiful too, I'm sure you'll put them to good use. Lisa

Dorthe your angles are fantastic your are so creativ, skønne skønne ting du sætter sammen til dine vidunderlige engle Dorthe, jeg skal til at lave ansigtet på min dukke, den har ligget et stykke tid og ventet, men har ikke haft tid og energi, i morgen skal jeg ned til tvillingerne og jeg glæder mig, lad os tales ved på søndag Dorthe. Privat loppemarked jeg kom forbi, 20 forskellige flakoner for 40,- billigt, da de blev vasket blev de hvide, de var meget snavsede.
Kærlig hilsen Anni
