Bonsai langs de Leie...


 Bonsaivereniging 'De Leie' had het originele idee, om een tentoonstelling te organiseren te Deinze, langs de boorden van de Leie en omgeving . Dit ter gelegenheid van het 40 jarig bestaan van de 'Vlaamse Bonsai Vereniging", waarvan ze een afdeling is. 
Deze expositie genoot vandaag van schitterend weer.

Aangezien een beeld nog altijd meer zegt dan duizend woorden, hier een foto-impressie.

Op het twee kilometer lange parcours, waren verschillende info- en demonstratiestanden.








Het ambachtelijk uitfrezen van doodhout partijen is één van de verouderingstechnieken om een startplant te ontwikkelen tot een volwaardig Bonsai.

Bonsai is beeldhouwen met levend materiaal.















Bonsai is de illusie van een oude boom op schaal.

Big Decopatch Dog Cat
Most people know I'm a big cat lover. A friend gave me a paper-m√Ęch√© cat a gift the other day! So nice to have that (next to the cat grass) on the windowsill! But of course I gave him (or her) nice colors first, you get that. Because I quite often Decopatch (pasting pieces of paper on all kinds of surfaces) I still had a lot of scraps of small pieces left of different paper designs. Perfect to cover my own motley cat! At least I am happy with it, he/she is sitting here at home in front of the window, looking out and it keeps an eye on all the neighborhood cats. Collect about 20 kinds of pieces of paper, from each color a little. But if you only have 2 or 3 colors (for example) then you can of course also! By first dyeing the cat white, the colors of the paper come to the fore much fresher. It is not necessary, but it is advisable to! The eyelets are cut out of a nice Decopatch sheet, which only has eyelets. Choosing is difficult, all the eyes are fun! The method is very simple: Tear small pieces of a lot of different colors of paper. In stages, glue the cat (or any other shape) with Decopatch glue. The glue is also lacquer, so when you grease a piece with a soft brush, you stick the piece of paper on it, and then you go over it with the same brush and glue.. The next piece is glued to it overlapping, and then you go over again with the same brush with glue. So you continue, until the whole shape is covered. Finally, apply another layer, using the same brush with glue/lacquer. It's a bit of a job, because you also want to divide the colors a bit. That gives quite a nice effect, though? I don't have a lot of step-by-step pictures, I was so focused that I forgot. Decopatching is very relaxing, you forget the time when you are creative.. :) The large papier-m√Ęch√© cat is 25cm high and you could of course also give it a collar with fringes and a bell, or give some bows, rhinestones, or one smooth color. I like busy, cheerful colors myself, it can't be fur enough. And you? How would you pimp this cat?? I'm curious! More info Check out the hundreds of designs you can choose from!

What's your most important rule of life?
I'm very curious about yours. You can post below in the comments. How you got it ? Why this one is so important to you ? For example, one of my most important rules of life is, ‚ÄúDon't postpone anything.‚ÄĚ Just learned by experience and because a lot of people die. My deadline is also approaching. How to turn it or turn. (I'm otherwise healthy hear:) And I was looking for a good working way to get a lot done. Have a lot of output. I always have space and freedom in my head because everything is finished. You can also post about it. I've linked a nice booster to it. Photo: The Warriors. #Ruleoflife
