Asian Empress

She came from the mosaic glass decantor on the tile floor. Entering a new world with new smells and a new way of writing, it was oddly familiar yet she recognized nothing. She was so different from them but they did not even notice. Maybe it was her translucent skin picking up thier identity. Feeling the complex city intruding on her usually calm mind, gave her a new sense of purpose and intrigue.

Sansarian Altered Shoes.

Although Sansaria doesn't often wear shoes Oria wears these ballet type slippers because of a secret talent of hers.

Barbie clothes altering.

Thought I'd vamp up some ethic dolls I found at a yard sale. I think she was originally Swedish....now she is Sansarian.

Thursday

From the very beginning I've had this attachment to things that are old and worn. Over the years it has become popular and acceptable. When I was young, my pre-teen years it was a bit odd. Now it is strange to see grunging and antiquing and distressing used so commonly. I'm conflicted just a bit because I liked the feeling of being unique and different. But now I do enjoy seeing prefab old stuff like emphemera, distress inks and pre-printed paper that looks old. I realize though that half the value for me was the hunt, and I rarely buy those things. It just makes my hunt more challenging. After writing a comment to Tim Holtz begging him to stop watering down the creative process and making such awesome stuff, I realized that I wouldn't stop if I were him and realized I was just jealous because I could have gone into manufacturing these things but he does it so well there could be no competition. So periodically I thought I'd show you my finds....then I thought I show you how I would use them in decor, art and/or writing. 

Ask yourself why do you like things that are old or worn?
 In Sansarian Scripts there is belief or should I say a truth that old things have a type of soul or memory that it holds.
When you touch that thing it takes on your memory and anyone elses who has ever touched it. Imagine what we could learn if we could read these objects of curiosity! What stories could they share with us?

Indian Elephant

Found this little guy at a yard sale in Santa Barbara. He is made by one single wire of brass, coiled and sculpted and who knows how else. I love to imagine where he has been and the stories he could tell if I could read his sacred little soul.
