Beautiful Creatures: Lena's Love by camilliette Beautiful Creatures: Lena's Love by camilliette
It takes one memory,
One tiny piece of hope,
One single act of love,
To cut through the darkness.



This is a paper-cut piece. I used an exact-o blade and just... got into in. I was really excited to play with the negative and positive space as a second layer to the concept of the contest. I know this was sent in close to the deadline! But, I'm really glad I tried anyway. <3

To be completely honest, I used the paper from the roll I bought at ikea's children section. :D Its really nice to cut but sturdy.... ^___^

congratulations for being in the top five. Now you won't have to sell your lovely peacock costume.
also thanks for trying to talk some sense into that young man from NY. He was just a bit too wound
up to listen to you explain what art is. Thanks for making the world a more beautiful place.

Beautiful work! I have to admit, exacto knives make me a little nervous. You must have very steady hands.

You're a braver ( yeah I made that word up ) soul than I! Good luck in the finals! :squee:

I liked your comments on the main page as well. I considered posting, but then I realized that my time would be better spent working on my next project. Still, you said pretty much what I was thinking. :)

Ahhhh, thank you so much! Yes, exact-o knives... hahahaha, lots of cuts from those. TT_TT

But yes!! Your piece is also so beautiful and well made!! <3 Good luck too! :)

Yeah-- I work in an office in front of a computer and I get carried away on the internet. ^_^;; Sometimes I need to just hold back. Ahahahaha. ^ ^ But thank you~ I really appreciate it. <3

One of my favorite quotes...

"Never argue with idiots. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

While, I dont think that young man was a idiot per say. I guess I remember what it was like to be a teenager and know everything. Im pretty sure I have some shirts and maybe a pair of shoes older than him. =P

Temptation still gets the better of me sometimes too.

Keep the faith and again, good luck!
