Friend





Yesterday came Marie Claude (the girlfriend of Mr. cat´s face best friend David). She wants to make something nice to decorate her bathroom. So I sugested some of my collage girl in a large canvas and she liked the idea.

So we went to buy som decorative papers and came home all excited to work together (since I´m living in Montreal she is one of my only 2 girlfriends and I´m happy for that!, I miss my friends in Mexico...) I helped her to choose the elements of the collage, I painted the dolls´ faces and their hairs, I helped her to mix and match the papers and she added her touch and glue everything together.

Here is what we did!!! the first 2 are Marie Claude´s collages and the 3rd is mine. The first one is the biggest one, it measures 20 x 16 inches and then she is going to hang below the other one which measure 16 x 8 inches and I think it´s going to look really nice!!!

Mine is a little bit smaller, 12 x 10 inches and this time instead of mounting it over cotton paper I mounted it on a rigid canvas surface and I really like it for framing, I´ll put it in the store today.

Well, I really enjoyed this girls evening at home, creating and being artsy... aplausses to Marie Claude, she really did a good job!!!

Ayer vino Marie Claude a casa (ella es la novia de David el mejor amigo del Sr. Cara de Gato). Ella quiere poner algo lindo en la pared de su baño y le sugerí hacer una de mis muñecas de papel en un canvas grande y le gusto la idea.

Así que fuimos juntas a comprar algunos papeles decorativos y nos venimos a casa super emocionadas de trabajar juntas (desde que llegué a Montreal sólo he hecho 2 amigas y ella es una de ellas, lo cual me da mucha alegría. Extraño mucho a mis amigos en México...). Yo le expliqué a ella como mezclar los papeles, le dibujé la carita de las muñecas y sus peinados, le ayudé a escoger los elementos del collage y ella los pegó y le añadió su toque.

Aquí esta el resultado, los primeros 2 son de Marie Claude y el 3o es mío. El primero es el más grande, mide 50 x 40 cms. y el segundo que ella va a colgar debajo de el primero mide 40 x 20 cms. Creo que se va a ver muy lindo!!!

El mío es un poco más chico, mide 25 x 30 cms y esta vez en lugar de pegarlo sobre papel de algodón lo puse sobre un lienzo rígido y quedó muy bien para enmarcar. Lo pondré en un rato en la tienda.

Disfruté mucho la tarde crativa de amigas!!! un aplauso a Marie Claude que hizo un muy buen trabajo!!!
