Wow thats such an interesting image. I love how you've thought about the theme and come up with this. Great.

I really like the combination of the paint and the collage elements. It has the feeling of fragments and distance - perfect for the song lyrcis. I tried to leave you a comment last week on your IF submission, but your blog wouldn't load! Anyway, your piece for "Choose" is very compelling - I like thye red drops - very dramatic. Oh... your jewelry is very pretty too!

Carla: Thank you so much for your kind comments! They mean a lot to me.

Gisan: Tack! Själv känns det som om jag har gått lite i stå :( men så är det ju med kreativitet, det går upp och ned.
