Happy 25 Bruno! Bon anniversaire Bruno



Bon mercredi!
Je me fais rare ces temps ci! mon temps créatif se passe derrière le viseur de ma caméra plutôt qu'à mon pupitre! Je découvre une autre façon d'exprimer la vie, c'est à la fois fascinant et éprouvant. Je ne vais pas vous raconter mes aventures en photos ici, je pense plutôt créer un 2e blogue uniquement sur la photographie et partager simplement mon parcours, comme je le fais ici avec me créations, c'est à suivre.

Happy Wednesday!
I am very low profile these days! My allowed time to create takes place behind the viewfinder of my camera rather than at my desk coloring. I discover a new way to express life, it is both fascinating and very "testing" for me. I am not going to relate here my stories in the Photography world, I think about creating a second blog dedicated only to this technique to share my journey simply as I do here.

Notre fils Bruno a célébré ses  25 ans le 18 février, j'ai voulu créer pour lui une carte spéciale pour souligner ce tournant de la vie, ce premier quart de siècle comme on s'amuse à l'appeler chez nous! Bruno est l'artiste de la famille, ses créations m'ont toujours touchée profondément. Il avait 2 ans et couchait son âme dans ses dessins, ses contrastes étaient puissants, il était fasciné par le noir; encore aujourd'hui, il a cette façon très personnelle et unique de jouer avec les couleurs et les formes, d'imprégner la vie dans ses images. J,ai trouvé une étampe de MoManning qui lui ressemble ! même Pierre a dit, "ben, c'est tout à fait lui, ca!" Alors voici ma carte:

Our son Bruno will turn 25 on the 18th of this month, I wanted a special card to emphasize this moment in life, his first quarter of century, as we love calling it in our family! Bruno is our artist, his creations always touched me deeply. He was only 2, and already drawing his soul! His style is unique, he was and still is fascinated by black, his contrasts are always very strong, he plays with colors and shapes in a very personal way. I found an image of Mo Manning that could have been created for him,  his computer and tablet are his main tools to create as a 3d artist. Even hubby agreed when he saw the image, saying it did look like him so much. this is my card:



Computer Guy de MoManning est imprimé sur xpress blending card, coloriée aux copics. Ce style C&S me plait de plus en plus! je délaisse les boucles et les fleurs, pour aller vers un style plus dépouillé qui donne toute l'importance à l'image qui le mérite bien, puisque la mise en couleur prend pas mal de temps. 

Computer Guy by MoManning is printed on xpress blending card, and colored with copics. I love this C&S style, I let behind bows and flowers to adopt a bare style, that gives all the importance to the image, which we all know, takes quite a few hours to make and deserves this honor.


Voici l'intérieur qui souligne 25 ans, j'ai utilisé les papiers de Tim Holtz, dont le style antique convenait parfaitement à cette carte masculine.

It was important to me to emphasize the 25 years;I used Tim Holtz papers- I loved the antique style for this masculine card.


La boitatou coordonnée, laquelle je voulais garder très simple.
The coordinated Boitatou, which I kept very simple.


 L'ensemble, carte et boîte... (Je n'ai pas trouvé la correction à faire sur mon appareil pour illuminer mon étiquette sans surexposer le reste de mon sujet!) à suivre...

Card and coordinated box together. (I was unable to find the proper exposure correction on my camera, to enlight the tag without over exposing the lighter part of my subject, this remains to be practiced!...)



I have entered my card in the Kit and Clowder February challenge.

Merci de votre visite! 
J'aime beaucoup vous lire, j'apprécie chacun des petits mots que vous me laissez! Bonne journée.

Thank you for stopping by!
I really love it when you do, especially when you leave me a sweet note!
Have a lovely day!
