A lot of my assemblages are pessimistic, but never let it be said that I belittle true feeling.
'Sentimental' has become a denigratory word, but feeling, true feeling ... it makes us human.
Fallible, vulnerable, but truly alive.
Mica: lovely stuff to use over text.
I had to buy a retro toaster on TradeMe to get some.
Stupidly expensive but I really wanted the mica.
And now I'm on a roll, using it with my assemblages.
Protective over paper & text, but more organic-looking than glassy.
