Vissi d'arte # 11 : Don't let good dreams slip. Catch'em!

"Folk lores, tales and legends are alway fascinating for me."

For people who've been having bad dreams, let's make yourself a dreamcatcher!

I'm a kind of person who's really into good luck charms and this kind of things. That's why a dreamcatcher attracts me so much. Its shape, its decorations and the story behind it, they are all so captivating!

"Dreamcatcher" is a kind of charm against nightmares, originated from the culture of a native american tribe called Ojibwe.

The legend has it that a dream catcher is used to catch bad dreams,letting only good dreams pass through to the sleeping person. All nightmares will be trapped by the web and will be destroyed by the morning sunlight.

Interesting, isn't it?

So let's make !

Here are the things you need: a ring
(which can be made by beding a clothes-hanger into a circle form),
flax lace or suede lace, beads and feathers.

First, curl up the hanger into circle.
Then, wrap around the ring with the lace.
tie the web. Row by row.

Decorate the ring with beads and feathers

Finally, Hang it above your bed and say goodbye to bad dreams!

Remember, magic is everywhere.

Vissi d'arte # 10: Unearth the underground inspiration

National Children's day has just passed and the atmosphere of the yearning for childhood joy still lingers in the air. At least for me. So the inspiration for this entry is about toy.

Last December I went to a toy exhibition called
"the 3rd Underground Figures Festival"
at ArtGorillas ArtGallery, Siam Square.

The works showed in the exhibition were impressive, full of creativity. Most displayed items were strange action figures, paintings, and knickknacks. All of them were the fruits of novelty. And most of all, the artist of such striking pieces of works were none other but talented thai bloggers. I don't know any of them in personal neither have read any of their blogs, but I can tell from their works that these are no mere teenagers. Talented artist, they are. Offsprings of the Renaissance!

These are some examples of the work from the exhibition

small gallery, full of creativity

Enjoy my comeback!
