A lot of my assemblages are pessimistic, but never let it be said that I belittle true feeling. Sweet sentiment.
'Sentimental' has become a denigratory word, but feeling, true feeling ... it makes us human. Fallible, vulnerable, but truly alive.
And there's that mica again. 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.
