I saw some Mondrian paintings in a gallery in France, and I absolutely love your wall! When I get a place where I can have free reign on the walls, I would like to do something similar. I don't think I'd want a wall like that in my bedroom, but yours turned out beautifully. Superb job Smiley

I love the cover of Starry Night! Great job Smiley

That's really pretty. JIC you didn't know already, I'm pretty sure that Chinese character says "spring". You should do a tag for each season. Fantastic!

That's wickedly cool! Is that fondant or marzipan for the outside? Or something else? Do you (or your mom)have previous experience with making cakes like this? Kudos to you and your mother!
335  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pore Strips..no longer stealing all my $$$$ on: April 08, 2005 09:10:02 AM
My fianc showed me that you can pinch out stuff from your pores (I don't know if this is a good idea with pimples, and I've never had a blackhead before). I also don't know if it'll work for everyone, but using your index fingers on both hands, find an area on the side of your nose (or forehead, wherever you want to clear your pores) and push. I get excited when the fat "pops" out, and then grossed out. LOL. This works every few days since the gunk under there needs to build up, and don't do it too much if nothing comes out because it'll leave the pinched area red for awhile. Try it :-D

I also love the penguin! That's it, you should just make one of each mammal/bird/reptile on the planet. Too cute!
337  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: first embroidery in fifteen years on: April 08, 2005 08:45:36 AM
You did a wonderful job!

If someone gave me something so beautiful like that, I probably wouldn't use it either in fear of ruining it! Hand made things hold so much more sentimental value than something you can pick up at the store.

I adore the side swirls on the first one! Fabulous job!

These remind me of "chinese paper cuts". When I was in Shanghai last summer, I actually saw a guy doing this at the craft market, and he was just snip snip here, trim there, open it up and "WOW". Chinese paper cuts are made out of tissue paper and come in all colours and layers (either solid or painted) , and I buy/collect/give them away every time I come back from China. I've also done it myself but it's tedious work (think cutting out a carp with all the individual scales), and I did it with mostly an x-acto and scissors versus the traditional scissors only method.

Great job on your work though! You should consider doing some on white paper and then painting the scenery to jazz it up. And as always, practice makes perfect Smiley

Oh, I forgot to answer Sugar Queen.

I just used regular Tacky Glue and double stick tape.  But I found that there is a glue called PVA that is used for bookbinding, so I think I'm going to buy a jar.

PVA is great stuff. I had some problems at regular craft stores when I first looked for it, but I finally found it at a specialty paper store on my college campus.

How many sheets/pages are in your books?
