Called 'Through The Looking Glass', her challenge to you is to make a project involving glass (acetate) or mirrors (metal sheet), perhaps a window or a clock face, a hand held mirror or glass bottle. Tim has lots of Idea-Ology products and dies that would be just the thing for this challenge. To me the essence of Tim Holtz' style is to take something new and give it a feeling of age, replicating in part the vintage pieces he's well known for collecting and exhibiting on his show stands (and even at home. ) When Julia set the challenge theme I knew I wanted to some kind of reflective surface rather than glass but didn't want to go for the standard die cut option. ) I came across a set of boards from Savvy City Farmer which included antique furniture and mirrors. The cogs started whirring and, in one of those 'what if' moments, I came up with an idea for ageing a Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Mirrored Sheet. foil covered card altered with Alcohol Inks and die cut with one of the Mixed Media Thinlits dies. To make the embossed feather stand out more I offset another one (cut from black card) underneath. The rest of the elements, including the butterfly from one of Tim Holtz' Ephemera packs, were splattered with some Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain and the Alpha Parts numbers were painted with the matching shade of Distress Paint. :) I looked at your card, first, before reading your steps--and then I started reading your steps--AAAHHHHH.
In films and serials of Byomkesh, many remarkable historical and heritage locations have been shown. There has been a sudden interest in the Indian film industry for Byomkesh Bakshi, the fictional sleuth created by Saradindu Bandopadhyay. It was not that earlier directors and producers have not shown interest in making films about Byomkesh Bakshi. From 1967 to 2010, four Bengali films, three Bengali serials and one Hindi serial have been made on Byomkesh. Out of them Uttamkumar as the first Byomkesh and Rajit Kapoor as the first “National” Byomkesh had their presence felt. From 2012 to 2015 as many has as four Bengali feature films has been made on Byomkesh. In television, ETV Bangla is at present airing a TV Series on Byomkesh starring Gaurav Chakrabarty as the youngest Byomkesh which is quite popular too. This month a Hindi film on Byomkesh by Dibakar Banerjee is due release starring Sushant Singh Rajput as Byomkesh Bakshi. Out of the many actors who have adorned the role of Byomkesh, I have chosen shooting locations of the five most renowned Byomkesh : Uttamkumar, Rajit Kapoor, Abir Chatterjee, Sujoy Ghosh and Gaurav Chakrabarty. I would have loved to include the latest Byomkesh – Dhritiman Chatterjee performing as the aged sleuth.
The best time to visit is during the weekly Sunday flea market, known as the joutiya (from the French, jeter , to throw or discard), when an art tour can be combined with a rummage through the second-hand and antique treasures on the many stands... Although you can find the work of the joutiya artists such as Abdelaziz Baki, Ali Maimoune and Asmah Ennaji in the medina, they are happy to welcome you in to their studios, where they exhibit the full range of their work. In Baki's studio you will find brightly coloured sculptures of fantastical beasts - half bird, half fish or part man, part animal. He also decorates small pieces of furniture in his inimitable style featuring eyes (the evil eye is common theme in Islamic and Jewish cultures) and dots reminiscent of Aboriginal art. If you aren't in town on a Sunday, the newly renovated Centre Artisanal (Artisans Center, opposite L’Heure Bleue) is also a great place to discover local arts and crafts.
