Paris and earrings

A couple of weeks ago I went to an exhibition in a museum in The Hague. It was about Paris, city of modern art in1900-1960. Back then, when you were an artist, Paris was the place to be.
So my another place is Paris, where art changed and became more abstract.
The picture of the eiffeltower (1926) made by Robert Delaunay was resized on the computer before a copy was made. Then the copy was crumbled to make the paper more soft. Then it was ironed onto vlieseline.
So putting in paper was easy... My new technique was using plastic, and honestly: I dont think it was a great idea. Then machinequilting, and I added some paint. I am not totally done with it, but running out of time.

These earrings I made with the fabrics from Guatemala. 
Next year I hope to finish more of these small projects. And complete some of my large projects... :-) 
Wishing everybody the very best for a healthy and inspiring new year!
De beste wensen voor een gezond en creatief nieuw jaar!!

guatemala stoffen

Bij Mijn Eigen verkopen ze prachtige stoffen uit guatemala. We hebben met de Texperantogroep stof gekocht en ieder heeft er verschillende dingen mee gemaakt. Ik maakte er oa een boekomslag en een armband van.
Mijn Eigen sells beautiful cloths from Guatemala, from which I made among other things a cover and a bracelet.
