The Song of Songs, Chapter 1

-----Section 1 (hgddm):

The song of songs, which is Solomon's.
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth--for thy love is better than wine.
Thine ointments have a goodly fragrance; thy name is as ointment poured forth; therefore do the maidens love thee.
Draw me, we will run after thee; the king hath brought me into his chambers; we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will find thy love more fragrant than wine! sincerely do they love thee.



-----Section 2 (kartiana):

I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.
Look not upon me, that I am swarthy, that the sun hath tanned me; my mother's sons were incensed against me, they made me keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.
Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon; for why should I be as one that veileth herself beside the flocks of thy companions?
If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock and feed thy kids, beside the shepherds' tents.




-----Section 3 (stellou):

I have compared thee, O my love, to a steed in Pharaoh's chariots.
Thy cheeks are comely with circlets, thy neck with beads.
We will make thee circlets of gold with studs of silver.
While the king sat at his table, my spikenard sent forth its fragrance.
My beloved is unto me as a bag of myrrh, that lieth betwixt my breasts.
My beloved is unto me as a cluster of henna in the vineyards of En-gedi.
Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thine eyes are as doves.
Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant; also our couch is leafy.
The beams of our houses are cedars, and our panels are cypresses.

24  Palaeontology Rocks! Purim Fossil Record Costume in Halloween Costumes by sophieangele on: May 15, 2010 05:53:00 PM
Ok, so this wasn't actually a Halloween costume, but there isn't a Purim board so I put it in here with the other costumes.

For Purim this year (a Jewish holiday where we dress up and give gifts of food) I decided to go as the Fossil Record! I hand-painted this costume with tip-ex and permanent markers - the layers go from the earliest period at the bottom (late proterozoic period) to the present (quaternary period). I made little animals out of polymer clay to illustrate the creatures that evolved in each period. (Yes, I am a massive geek)



Close ups (sorry they're a bit dark)

The front of the top:


The back:


The skirt:



close-ups of a couple of dinosaurs/lizards:





At the Purim meal I went to I actually got told off by another guest, who was a creationist  Roll Eyes I'm glad to be out of that neighbourhood now.

25  80th Birthday Cake (and icing granddad) in Dessert by sophieangele on: May 15, 2010 04:20:20 PM
Hello,

It was my granddad's 80th birthday on Wednesday and to celebrate, I made him a surprise birthday cake.

Voila:



It's a chocolate cake covered in melted milk chocolate, with a ring of maltesers round the edge. I also made a fondant version of my granddad, Jim (his name's spelled out on the cake board in maltesers again), which took FOREVER.





I real life you couldn't see all that icing sugar - the flash picked it up in the photo Sad

He's in highland dress - a kilt made from ribbon, white socks and black shoes, a black jacket, and white ruffly shirt. I made his spectacles out of wire.

Here's a picture of my granddad for comparison:

(ok, so not the greatest pic, but you get the idea...)

And one last pic:

I'm glad that you like it, hgddm! I was a bit worried, I'm not too sure on steampunk, I had to do a lot of googling and craftster stalking.

Here it is:

Picture and text pages together:

Wow, these pages are amazing! I especially love the little wolf hiding behind the tree and the jaberwocky. I'm a little worried about the pages I did now, I'm worried they won't be fancy enough Sad


I've now received my fabulous page from the awesome stellou! I will post some pics here to fully show it off, and the lovely cards she sent with it, then I'll post the picture with the text in a separate message.

Here it is:


Isn't it beautiful? Just what I was hoping for!


Here's a couple of close-ups:

Lovely turtledoves -


and beautiful vines and fig leaves-


And it's all hand-written, which must have taken an age!

Thank you so much, stellou, you've really captured the feel of the Song of Songs Smiley Your work is beautiful, thank you for crafting for me!

nilubol, please do put stuff up here from your zine, it would be really cool to see it!


I'm trying to work out a design for the new issue of my zine, Modern Convert. Here are some photos of a first draft; I'd really appreciate some criticism to improve it, I'm not very happy with it. I tried posting on the papercraft boards, but with all the April Fools silliness, it got buried Sad

Anyway, is it clear enough? I'm particularly troubled by the the "Down the Rabbit Hole" bit on the bottom left, I need to sort that out. Any suggestions to improve it?












Thank you very much!
