Today i'm putting the wedding blog post on hold. There are 2 reasons for this, one is that because i've been so busy i've just not had the time to put anything together and the other is that I have something to give away.
A few years ago a lovely Chinese lady who was one of Dave's work colleagues that I met a few times, found out I was very into making things and gave me some little booklets containing traditional Chinese folk paper-cut art. They're lovely delicate little tissue paper cuttings which can be used to make cards and a host of other things. I've kept hold of them for ages, in the hope that I would one day use them for a project but haven't really every found the time to plan anything to use them in.
So i've decided to give them away to someone who can make use of these.
There are a total of 50 beautiful and intricate pieces in 5 themed booklets/folders each. Two of the booklets are the same type and have dragon themed paper cuts:
Opera art - A bound booklet containing a total of 10 pieces, each
measuring around 10cm x 6cm. A page of this book is featured in images.
Ming Vase art - A bound booklet containing a total of 10 pieces, each
measuring around 10cm x 5cm. A page of this book is featured in images.
Dragon art (1 of 2 of the same) - a small folder containing a total of
10 pieces, each measuring around 10cm x 6cm. A piece from this is
featured in images
4. Dragon art (2 of 2 of the same) - a small
folder containing a total of 8 pieces, the same as the others in the
other dragon art folder.
5. Chinese ladies - a small folder
containing a total of 12 pieces, each measuring around 10cm x 6cm. There
are 12 ladies in different poses in traditional Chinese costume.
I want them to go to someone who will genuinely use these in a project or
piece of work, so anyone interested please comment below with
details of what you plan to use these for and i'll choose the best. If there are several comments, i'll put the best ones in a hat & pick a winner.
Make sure you put your email address in the comment so i can contact you if you win for your address. I'm afraid you will need to be based in the UK to take part.
This will be open till next Friday when I will pick the winner.
Please feel free to pass this onto anyone else you think may be interested.
