Wall Group

Posted in By Vikimouse 0 comments

I designed these digital prints to create these simply mahhhhhhhhvelous wall groups. Each of the prints will fit in a 5x7 frame so it should make for a striking display. I'm lovin' it, I think :)
I'm gonna call this my Rock Wisdom collection. :)

Here's what they would look like on a wall:



Cute, right?




Guess Who Book Sculpture

Posted in By Vikimouse 0 comments

I'm not going to tell the title of this book, you'll have to guess. :) I'm sooo happy with this one but not so happy with the pictures. They just don't do justice to the detail in this piece. There are 8 fully detailed beds in this piece, complete with mussed up blankets and pillows but they just don't seem to show up in picture. In person they are the absolute highlight of the piece. In spite of the pictures..I'm really proud of how this one turned out.

Altered diffuser bottles- II

Posted in By Vikimouse 0 comments

My two new bottles. This bottle is done with paper napkins and is a picture of me at 4 or 5 years old.

My next bottle is done with a large mouthed bottle and contains a picture of my Aunt Judy as
a little girl.

   Here is the picture of my Aunt Judy and some other pictures I was playing with today. I cleaned up the original pictures and played with the clarity and contrast to make them sharper and  more visible.



Altered diffuser bottles

Ever since my mom passed away in July I can't stop thinking about this beautiful little collection of altered bottles that she had made. I finally decided to set down my other projects and give these little bottles a try. My first bottle is, of course, inspired by my mom and has a picture of her on it.

My next bottle is a little different and contains a picture of my granddaughter, Anna on it.
 Eventually I hope to fill a shelf with my bottles and have each bottle represent a different member of my family.

Book sculpture- Wizard of Oz

Wizard of Oz book sculpture. Can't really tell from the picture but I tinted the print of "emerald city" with a very pale shade of green.



Book sculpture- SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON

Posted in By Vikimouse 0 comments

Finally ready to post a picture of my Swiss Family Robinson book sculpture. Spent a lot of time getting the "tree houses" to look exactly like I wanted. Love the shoreline on this one. Can't see it in the picture but there is a table and chair in the larger treehouse.  Trentyn (my grandson) is completely mesmerized by the book sculptures. After he studied this one a while he said, "grandma are they going to put water in that bucket?" :)


Wood burns

Took some time out from 'dwelling' this week and worked a couple of wood burnings. I really love the Rockwell ones best and I think I'll do another today.



Zentangles

Finally remembered to buy batteries for my camera so I'm catching up on some pictures for my blog. This is my little collection of zentangles. I gotta say they are aptly named because there is an overall zen-like feeling when you're working a tangle. No pressure, no aspirations, just taking a breather and doodling..it's great.

Gone With The Wind Book Sculpture

Posted in By Vikimouse 1 comments





How thrilled I am with this finished piece! It took 3 separate pieces to sculpt a "Tara" that I was happy with and I think this one has the feel of a plantation house. I love love love 'Scarlet', hopefully I captured a picture that shows the details of her dress-- so cute. I spent a lot of time cutting trees that suited me for the scene and of course, the farmhands just complete the vision in my head.

Snow White Book Sculpture Pictures

Finally got around to taking the pictures of my Snow White sculpture. Oh my gosh I need a better system for taking the photos--they just don't seem to do the pieces proud. There is so much more dimension and detail that what appears in the photo.  In any event, I am very happy with this piece. My grandson, Trentyn-- who is 5 years old was very impressed and seemed to want to crawl right into that little world! That is exactly what I hope to accomplish with the sculptures





Snow White Book Sculpture

Last night I put the finishing touches on my new Snow White book sculpture. I really enjoyed this one and I love the 'woods' (trees) that I made. Definately developing some new techniques as I go and am discovering that I need to think on a smaller scale. Pictures to follow.

A new journey

Posted in By Vikimouse 0 comments

I started last week trying my hand at paper and book sculpting and discovered a whole new passion. I am so excited by this new art that it has consumed my thoughts even in my sleep.  I love the meticulous craft of sculpting and modeling the objects from book paper but what I love even more than that is bringing the story to life with my own vision. I have completed 3 sculptures at this point. I have to admit I really loved my first try but have since destroyed it so that I can start over with the same vision. I am learning as I go and have already seen the pitfalls to watch for and the possibilities to strive for :)
Hope to have some decent pictures to share tomorrow.
