Lion Sketch by Sarahorsomeone
Lion Sketch
While my laptop was in for repair (under warranty!) I was rather forced to go back to my traditional pencil roots. I decided to be daring (for me!) and draw a mammal for a change (birds and insects are more my thing..), this time a lion. I've been experimenting with drawing straight onto Kraft card at the moment; I like to start with a mid-tone background when doing digital work and I've been trying to do the same thing in a traditional medium. Had a job getting this one to scan well, the highlights are a lot more obvious in real-life.

Map Decoupage Keepsake Box by Sarahorsomeone
Map Decoupage Keepsake Box
A wooden keepsake box covered in recycled pieces of old maps using the technique of decoupage. This is the first time I've ever done any decoupage so I'm quite pleased with how it turned out; I didn't make the box from scratch but bought an unfinished pine box and sanded it all inside and out before adding the decoupage.  I made it as part of my boyfriend's birthday present ready for our first trip abroad together next month (we are off to Romania!).
3D Horseshoe Crab Assemblage by Sarahorsomeone
3D Horseshoe Crab Assemblage
This piece of art was born out of a Google binge in which I read all sorts about horseshoe crabs (I have no idea why I started Googling them in the first place) and discovered that you could buy the molted shells* quite cheaply. Anyway, I bought a set of shells of different sizes on impulse, and decided to colour them silver using liquid leaf, before affixing them in a box frame along with some ribbon, freshwater pearls and a cockle shell (which has been polished to reveal the mother of pearl underneath). To make the border I used torn strips of linen textured card which I also coloured with liquid leaf. This one is going in my living room!

*Horseshoe crabs naturally shed their shells on a regular basis in order to grow larger; thus no crabs were harmed in the making of this artwork!
Grey-White Star Sapphire and Moonstone Bracelet by Sarahorsomeone
Grey-White Star Sapphire and Moonstone Bracelet
A delicate little bracelet made in sterling silver using the last of the batch of natural star sapphires I bought (a grey-white one of about 7 mm in diameter), this bracelet also features a small but high quality faceted moonstone (of about 5 mm) at the clasp. Both stones are in bezel settings.

Hmm... what to put.

I live in the UK with my two pet birds while studying for an undergraduate degree in health sciences. This is possibly helped by my strange ability to remember all kinds of weird Latin anatomical names whilst not being able to remember the name of the person sitting next to me. I'm particularly fascinated by human anatomy, physiology and medical microbiology.

As for the more artistic side of things, when I get the time, I work on everything from traditional art, photography, photo-manipulation and a variety of artisan crafts. Although a fair bit of the work I do is digital, above all things I like to work with my hands; the smaller and fiddlier the better! As you may have guessed, my gallery is quite eclectic in style, medium and subject.

When not studying or doing arty/crafty things I love to fence. Partly because it gives me a legitimate reason to poke people. ^_^
I haven't been around much recently, I was very busy preparing for exams and then had to have a small operation the week after. I've got some work to do over the summer break but otherwise I'm fairly free so hope to photograph and/or finish a few artisan craft pieces I have in the works. I should have some new things to upload over the next few weeks.

Sarah :-)

I realized I locked my forum thread and hence couldn't reply to your comment there about the "coloured light effect" in my work.

I'll let you in on a little secret... Sometimes I just put a very transparent coloured layer on top of things and keep painting above it. ;) That and applying amusing colour correction effects in my painting software once I'm finished. Sometimes if it ends up looking weird I end up painting some more to adjust it again. 

We do have a digital medium at our hands, might as well make the most of it ;D
