Here’s a couple of wallet fronts I did some time last week I think it was.

The bottom one is the first one I did and it has those ugly patches of dark ‘seed clusters’ all over it because I cut it out without checking what the surface was like (marking it out on the flesh side) and when I turned it over there was a blemish on it, that long, darker looking part on the right, which I thought I might be able to cover with some interesting tooling… to limited success ;p

Anyway I’m quite pleased with the top one. I’m not quite sure what it’s really supposed to be (in which case I suppose it’s not supposed to be anything exactly) but it’s sort of floral, organic, tentacley, somethingorothery. It’s whatever you’d like it to be I guess :D

Worth taking a look at the ‘hi-res’ (well it’s slightly higher) if you’re interested in seeing the tooling better.

I’d love to try this one day. They call it ‘silks’ or something like that don’t they? Looks amazing anyway.

Good grief that last post of my bearded face has a fair few notes!

Anyway, hello all, sorry I haven’t been around (as I haven’t been around for quite some time), I’m just not feeling this side of my life right now, which worries me slightly. There’s a certain… emptiness there. I should probably do something about it, but I’m not quite sure what, or how to motivate myself to do whatever it might be.

But anyway, anyway, I was at yoga this morning and found myself thinking “what I want/need is someone to take care of me” (don’t get me wrong, my family are very close, and they definitely are right there for me), and then the next minute an older woman next to me lent over and put her jumper over my feet because she was worried I was cold lying in shavasana, having noticed earlier I didn’t have a blanket (she offered me one she wasn’t using at the time, but I had my towel which I was happy with).
It wasn’t quite what I had in mind I don’t think :p But it was still really sweet of her and made me feel happy :)

Oh yes, and I’ve been growing a beard for the fun of it (and the insulation) over the winter! Rather amusing. I did go through a ‘Oh goodness I look scruffy and creepy!’ phase, but now I’m mostly enjoying the novelty of it.

These are a two of the first wallet fronts I made, dragon eyes or something of that sort. I wasn’t entirely happy with the scales on the first one, so I made myself a stamp/tool to do them and I’m a little more pleased with the outcome.

Gosh, I’ve rather neglected this blog haven’t I?!

Sorry my dear followers. I suppose I’ve neglected this side of my life as much as the blog actually. Although I am still doing yoga!

Anyway, I am still alive!

I’ve actually been getting back into doing creative things of late, making some leather wallets and that sort of thing. It’s a start :) I might upload a couple of pictures actually, some of the slightly less Gothic ones haha!

Ah well, I hope life is treating you all splendidly. Much love to you all. xoxo

Namaste

elespiritusantoamen:

Cosmic Cross / Ravenna


I’m not entirely sure what this signifies exactly… but I really like the concentric circles of stars, and the blue/gold combination! Very cool. I’d love to do a tiled room with a floor (or maybe ceiling would be more appropriate) like this, the stars anyway. Maybe a shower box/room with the rose in the center?!

I think I may have reblogged this before, but never mind, I rather like it.

I just watched a wonderful interview with Stephen Fry (‘Big Think Interview With Stephen Fry’) all about his influences, live, love, and so on. Really rather inspiring and thought provoking :)

I’m pretty sure this is the version I watched.

Representative of the Chakra do you think? Or simply lotus flowers?
