Curiousfae's great Bowie song ATC arrived a bit ago and I love it!  It would make an awesome poster!



Thank you!

To continue the Curiousfae gallery, here's the Omar Khayyam card I received from her today.

The text is Verse VII of Khayyam's Rub'iyt. I love the simplicity and intensity of this, and on the printed card the contrast of the red/orange against the blue is so vivid one's eyes can barely focus on it.

And as a bonus, this Steampunk card:


Thank you for them both! I may have to start calling myself "Professor Ocularo"! Grin

Unless I am mistaken, the tree one is done in oil pastels.

Yup  Smiley I used the kind of oil pastel that you can dip in water so it was kinda like painting. I like how the colors blended with each other when I was working on it.


and this one is just acrylic paint. I put white, purple, and black on a scrap of card board and mixed as I painted. This was a lot of fun to make, I have been drawing abstract designs similar to this for years and now that I know what a zentangle is I will probably make many more  Smiley

Bekashell - if mine doesn't show up in the next week, I'll re-send, but I think it's just the "normal" timelag between US & Aus, plus I managed to send it when the volcano blew up, that probably didn't help. (and I doubt US to Aus mail goes over Europe, but I'm guessing it caused some delays somewhere along the line)

Sweet, indeed!

I received this lovely card from curiousfae yesterday. It's a tiny pencil drawing of a tiny yurt! Love it! It's been Yurt Week for me, as I got several yurt-related items from eeyore_witch in the WWP swap.
