Opera dreams give away!!!








I´m inspired... and these are my inspiration results.... lovely and whimsical faces brooches with different expressions and drawn into the fabric with free style stitching.... the black thread is my ink and I draw with it.... All these faces are original illustrations of mine and I´m so happy and thrilled with these that I decided I will give not one but TWO away....!!!!

You just have to leave a comment and a link in you tube of one of your favorite Opera pieces... I will leave the first comment so you check out one of my very favorite Arias "Lascia ch´Io pianga" (let that I cry) from Haendel´s Opera "Rinaldo"... (it´s so touching.... I almos cry every time I listen to it!!!). If you want to count for 2 votes please make a post into your blog or facebook about my giveaway and show me the link. I will make the draw in a week, Tuesday 7th at 12pm Montreal time.

Good luck to all... and btw... this brooches are already in the store and will be making more!!!! go see them! they are gorgeous!!!

Estoy inpirada... y este este es el resultado de mi inspiración.... hermosos y caprichosos rostros prendedores con diferentes expresiones y dibujados en la tela con estilo libre de costura... el hilo negro es mi titna y dibujo con la máquina... Todos estos rostros son ilustraciones originales mias y estoy tan conteta y emocionada con ellos que he decidido regalar no uno sino DOS!!!!

Tan sólo tienen que dejar un comentario con un link en you tube de su pieza favorita de Opera... Yo voy a dejar el primero para que conzcan una de mis Arias favoritas "Lascia ch´Io pianga" (déjame que llore) de la Opera "Rinaldo" de Handel... (es tan hermosa y conmovedora que cuando la oigo siempre siento ganas de llorar!!!) Si quieren contar por dos votos tienen que poner un post en su blog o en su facebook acerca de mi regalo y enseñarmelo. Haré el sorteo en una semana, el martes 7 a las 12pm tiempo de Montreal.

Muy buena suerte a todos! y por cierto los broches ya están en la tienda y estaré subiendo más... vayan a verlos!!! son preciosos!!!!

Croquette du Almendreque said...

Me estremece Nessun Dorma de Puccini....Te comparto una versión en directo de Pavarotti en Paris: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdTBml4oOZ8&feature=related
Aunque esta ópera me emociona en todas sus versiones, porque también son bárbaras las interpretaciones de Paul Potts y Andrea Bocelli, por citar algunos...
Espero que te guste la elección ;-) a ver si me animo a hacer un post y recae en mis manos uno de esos brochecitos monísimos!!!
Un saludoOoo!
