More portion control


In her latest crusade, Michelle Ward tells us about portion control. I think portion control, together with repetition, and a color regime, makes our eyes wander through a piece of art. If everything is clear right away, there is no reason to ‘wander’ in the piece. Your eye gets attracted, is curious what is to come… I think most of us work with portion control, even subconscious.

These days i am into fabric, and less into painting. But in fabric there are lots of possibilities to make portion control. With lace for example, or with see through fabric.



I stamped with bubble plastic, after years of searching, the big ones arrived with something i bought on the internet. If all the circles would have been crisply stamped, it would have given a nice, but uninteresting picture, is my guess. Now it looks grungy, interesting and i haven’t done a thing yet with it. Take a look.


To me it already looks so great, that i am still thinking how i am going to use it in my journal! If you are interested in more portion controll i suggest you go to Michelle Street Team blog and look what she and the other crusader’s did with this. They did some marvelous things, so of you go!!




Janny, an art friend of mine {you can see her beautifull work here } tagged me. And most of the times, i do not cooperate on all kinds of awards. I recieve them with gratitude, but there is something in side me that resists. But this time, i thought it was funny. I was to put the 6th photo from my 6th map of digital photos here. No kidding, this was the picture…


If you read my last post you can see why it fits so well. This is Richard and me on our wedding day, almost 11 years ago. At the pond near our home. Romantic isn’t it? (if you think i look a little bit tired: YES i am tired. Six weeks before the wedding i gave birth to our oldest daughter, and she had lot of stomach cramps and cried a lot, so i was tired. Now she is almost 11….)

okay, here is the beautifull baby girl that escorted us to the ceremony.Don’t you think she looks so adorable in that dress?


Okay, now all you readers, feel TAGGED and go search for the sixth photo in the sixth map. WHAT IS YOURS?????
