I haven't written a journal for a while and since there are some changes, thought I better should. So, should I just line the new things in order made in title? Here we go...

No. 1: PAYPAL

My dear friends and customers, I finally have PayPal, which means I can finally accept payments through it. Why is this important? Well, as some of you know, people who ordered or commissioned things from me by now had to go through various other methods of payment, like WesternUnion or MoneyGram or similar and that tends to be, if not troublesome, tedious the least... And now, the easier way is finally here. Yay!

No. 2 : DISCOUNT

I'm quite happy about PayPal option and to sort of celebrate, I will prolong 5$ discount that has been running, on all my stuff, for another month. 10$ on orders over 200$ guys.

No. 3. ETSY

Finally, I reopened my Etsy shop. It has only few things for now, but I plan filling it slowly in the next period. So if you wanna check it up, do it here:

No. 4 GIFTS/FREE SHIPPING

As all of you who every commissioned or ordered from me in the past know, I always give the free shippings to all my customers. Meaning, the shipping is fully on me.

In addition to that, I usually add a small gift to the ordered item(s). Almost all my creations come with an additional gift, but I won't ruin the secret and tell you what they are. Also,they differ from one item to another, from one customer to another. I take my pleasure out of picking out something you would like to follow your item, something you think it would make it special and then turn it into a specialized gift, only for you. So, in truth, only you can discover what they are ;)

Well, I hope you like my news. Until the next journal! Heart free avatar

I love my work, which is...art. In many forms and ways.

I live for it and of it and times can be hard and times can be fun, but my life is a ever=shifting curious thing and most of the time, I like it that way.

It shows in my art...I tend to jump through techniques and themes and you'll rarely see me do the same thing twice, except on "popular demand"...or if someone orders it-girl has to eat ;) Yeah, I do commissions, ask if interested.

Current Residence: Dark side of moon
Favourite genre of music: metal, goth, classic, instrumental (especially Celtic)
Favourite photographer: too many, half of them members of DeviantArt
Favourite style of art: anything that makes you stop and think about it
Shell of choice: Cypraeidae
Skin of choice: Chameleon's
Favourite cartoon character: Snufkin
Personal Quote: Pain makes you rise or fall...

Woodland by Maylar

*You can find more of my miniature books and other works on my Etsy: www.etsy.com/shop/Maylar?ref=h…

Woodland is a fully hand-painted miniature book. The story about this one is of the winding ones, but if you would rather just have the details, skip it and find those on the bottom of the description. As for those who would rather read about making, this book was almost never made and few times left to wait, until being finally done.

---

I did the illustrations while being quite sick last year, unable to move out of bed or do anything serious. Since I had to "do something", this was one of rare things I could do in bed (with few interesting ink and watercolors spillages and dyeing the bed sheets in interesting patterns, ahem). But during that, I got more sick and had to abandon this altogether. They were left in my projects drawer to wait for better times.

I got better finally, but had a sudden large commission and everything else was set aside, while most of my life went on hiatus because of that. I finished the commission only to get another one and then my own personal project came to focus, then an exhibition one... Over six months later, I found the illustrations in the drawer, while cleaning it and barely remembered making them. In urge to finish, I made endpapers and then again was forced to leave it, as there was a oil painting to be done in short notice.

Three more months passed and few weeks back, I found the illustrations again, this time firmly deciding to finish the book. So the book was bound and covers were made up to the leather covering, when there was another break in the process. The book was set to wait once again. I found it couple of days ago and to my horror, found an unusual damage on back endpaper...it cracked full length. I have absolutely no idea why, except maybe the glue was drying to fast. 

It almost finished this project then and there, but after some thinking I concluded I want it finished and finished as it was, no endpapers change. So the decorations on the front cover were done and  finally, after a long time in making, here it is :)

---

"Woodland" measures 1.8 cm (0.70 inch) and has ten hand painted illustrations in ink and watercolors, plus two endpapers done in same technique. It's a perfect bound book, with hard covers bound in faux leather, matte version (handmade by me). The raised letters and decorations are done in 3D paste, which is a technique I rarely use in general, but wanted to do here.

In the end, I hope you like it :D

*In general, this miniature book is for sale, but as it is, with the cracked back endpaper and all.  If interested in something of a similar sort, however, feel free to note me, convo me on Etsy or contact me otherwise.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!<3
