It is week 2 of the "Divine Diptych Project" so there is a whole new set of Diptychs on our blog which you can see HERE.
This week I was randomly given the theme "Jewelry" and paired with the amazing photography Bogna aka Quizz. Bogna is what I call a "Rock Star" photographer so I was again nervous. I keep getting paired with these Goddess photographers! But, the good thing about this, is that I am only given a week to get my photograph in so I don't have the time to worry and fret over it.
Bogna and I didn't talk at all before we did our diptych. We just set a square size. We were surprised at how well our photos fit together and I really like the outcome. I love the colours and the way we are facing each other. Thanks Bogna! Let's do another project soon!
I took more photograhs with this theme. I forced myself to get out a gorgeous beaded gown my ex got me in Glastonbury, England from Monsoon that we found for steal(we called it the 'Klimt" dress as we thought the beading looked like something in one of his paintings). I hadn't put it on for a very long time and wanted to get it out for photos. I also put on a bunch of my handbeaded jewelry including necklaces, bracelets and one of my crowns. Then, I put on rings that my ex had given me-rings on all my fings to catch the light. These are things I don't know what to do with. I was going for a "Miss Havisham" look. I will include some photographs below.
The more I force myself to take photos, the more my creativity comes back slowly and am starting to get back into doing sketches and hopefully new paintings soon. Plus, I have new beads and beadwork to do and am ready to make wigs for dolls!
Today I would like to just bead and make wigs but my house-ick! What a mess! OK, I will clean a bit but I really want to just get these projects done and onto the next! Time to wash the windows too! Hope you are all well!
Yes, it is a dress for a younger woman, but I can dream...
