The Three Muses: Hand / Käsi

Tässä ne ovat, omat käteni, innokkaina aloittamaan askartelu ja taiteilu kaikilla niillä ihanilla papereilla ja kankailla ja kuvilla, joita työpöytäni kätköistä löytyy. Tämä altsukirjan aukeama on vastaukseni Kolmen Muusan haasteeseen "Give Us a Hand - Anna käsi". - Skannasin omat kämmeneni ja käsittelin kuvia PhotoShopin filtterillä. Muu sälä on työpöydältäni löytynyttä tavaraa. Klikkaa kuvaa niin näet sen isompana!

Here they are, my own hands, eager to start crafting and artmaking with all those wonderful papers and fabrics and images that my studio desk holds in its drawers. This altered book spread is my entry for the Three Muses challenge "Give Us a Hand". - I scanned my own palms, and manipulated the images with a PhotoShop filter. The rest of the stuff is bits and pieces found from my desk. Please click the image to enlarge it!

  4. What a great idea! My mother always said "busy hands are happy hands", and for some reason your pages brought that to my mind. This is a great addition to your altered book.

  10. Eila, I love how you have made journal pages for this week's challenge. Your collages are beautiful. I love all the bits and pieces you have included, especially your own hands which is such a lovely touch. I enlarged the picture and it looks even more fantastic when seen as a closeup.
    Your artwork is fantastic!

  11. What a clever idea using your own hands.
    I just love everything about this piece of artwork.
    I am doing a hand journal using my grandchildren's hands as a special gift for my daughter.
    I have been working on this for awhile now, my first thought was to do ink hand prints but
    was not happy with that at all. That was just to old school. An actual hand photo is a perfect idea.
    Thank you for the inspiration…
