Mosiac




The lovely and amazingly talent Laurie Mika was in Australia teaching at the Creative Soul Retreat last month. Thank you Laurie for your abilities and patience, you really do amaze me with your calm manerisms. I had to step outside my comfort zone for this piece of art as this is something that I just would never have done on my own, but Laurie convinced me it was alright it will work, the vision I had was good. I so lack in confidence a majority of the time, most people don't know this about me. I had to leave the class at one stage and re-group, breathe, breathe and breathe some more then take a step back. Upon returning I was in the right frame of mind to get the job finished, whilst everyone was playing Trivia Pursuit I sat and fiddled, filled and finished the job. I do say that now it is finished I really like it and will make more, I especially like the centre where the face is actually raised up and it looks like it is floating. I did a transfer onto the polymer and it was so easy, I watched Laurie demonstrated this technique early in the day. This piece is quite large measuring 19cms squared plus the overhangs,the frame is quite deep and very solid.

Thanks Lady Di for getting me out and about by going down the mountain for Lady Di supplies, taking a drive has always made me feel better.

I am so glad you can see the beauty in your masterpiece, I could see it before it was finished ... it's just stunning finished. Thank you for driving me down the mountain ... I really needed some soft polymer clay for the next day.

Lovely work Eliza.
It's great to be pushed sometimes and to feel vulnerable but not give in. Well done.
