Just Call Me The Queen Of Fauxtiquities
Thanks to Lune2009 for coining the phrase "fauxtiquities" for me. She called me the Queen of Fauxtiquities on flickr, after seeing what I've been up to this weekend. I love it! So, I'm stealing the term. I am going to have to send her a pendant, or a fauxtiquity focal bead, to thank her!
I pulled an all-nighter Friday night, after finishing up the PCAGOE challenge and getting it published (don't forget to vote for your top 3 favorites, you could win a prize!) and while I was working on the final details, an idea came to me that I just had to see if I could execute. I finally made it to bed around 5:00 Saturday morning. When the idea strikes, you gotta go with it or, in my case, lose it forever. I am very happy with these focals. They executed exactly like I dreamed them. I am "seeing" the clay so much better these days, ever since that little exercise called "Progress and Possibilities". It's like a door in my brain opened, and color palettes and ideas are just flooding the old noggin. Better get it while the gettins good, as we say down South. You never know when the old Muse is going to take a hike.
Fauxtiquities, fauxtiquities, fauxtiquities. Man, I love that!
