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...

Bullet; Red Bullet; Red Bullet; Red 

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!

Bullet; Green Bullet; Green Bullet; Green 

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

Runes by Maylar
Runes

Video: youtu.be/TuOk9yjZnXs

Etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/239366084…

According to the myth, to obtain the runes, Odin:”… hung on the Yggdrasil tree for nine days and nights and was pierced by a spear. He fasted during this whole ordeal. He also pawned one of his eyes for a drink of the Spring of Mimir…”

Let’s say they’re somewhat easier to get now…or at least the ones I made!

This is a set of the miniature book, bag and the rune plates.

The bag is made out of faux soft leather and a cord with two handmade beads. It contain 24 miniature faux stone plates (fimo). These plates measure 6 x 4 mm or 0.23 x 0.15 inch each, with all the runes of so called upper futhark engraved on them.

The miniature book is 1.8 cm high, 1.5 wide (0.70 x 0.59 inch) and contains 24 tea dyed pages with all the runes and their names done in ink, plus the hand marbled endpapers. Book is saddle stitched, hard covered and bound in faux leather, silvered with silver leaf. There is a hand-woven, permanently attached bookmark with the silvered shield knot on one end. Shield knot is present on the spine as well.

The front cover features Huginn and Muninn (“Thought” and “Desire”), ravens from the Nordic mythology and a small symbols of Horn of Odin and a rune.

The  back cover features Sleipnir (“The Sliding One”), Odin’s eight legged horse, with Odin himself on his back.

The book is completely handmade, from scratch. 

Hope you like it! :D

Miniature Books (basic) by Maylar
Miniature Books (basic)
Video: youtu.be/9qb0f_-DIN0
Etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/238807612…

Since I am often asked to do a "a blank, basic book", here they are. These are the basic, fully functional, miniature books for miniature collections and miniature book enthusiasts and they are the lightest option in my shop, money-wise ;)

They are 1.8 cm in height (0.70 inch), which makes them the collectibles and so they are a perfect addition to your miniature library or a doll house, especially as a filler to those nasty gaps on the shelves. Or you can just give them as a gift to your favorite BJD ^^

I'm making these in a variety of colors. They are all perfect bound, hard covered books, which have 24 blank, not dyed pages and the single color endpapers. All these books are bound in faux leather (handmade, by me) and each and every is a fully functional book in which you can write or draw whatever you want. 

Hope you like them :D

Metallic Heart by Maylar
Metallic Heart
Here is the new miniature book. This time with metallic covers :)

etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/238499476…

video: youtu.be/M8-K3u0T_qE

1.8 cm high (0.70 inch), it has 24 blank, tea dyed pages + 2 marbled endpapers. Book is hard cover, saddle stitched. As always, tea dying, marbling, stitching and binding, bookmark weaving, carving the mold and molding the bookmark seal...Should I say it is all made by hand, from scratch, by me? ;) :P

But this time, I definitely had help with the idea realization. You see, a long time ago, I've known of similar process for getting metallic pages and thought of making something close to this, using silverleaf. It stayed somewhere in the back of my mind, but more an echo of the idea, than something absolutely necessary to create. Until some time ago, I've seen this tutorial: fav.me/d8v2bkj

So credit must be given where credit is due. This tut really helped. It brought my mind right back to this idea and also made me rethink silverleaf and turn it into aluminum foil. I wanted rougher texture than tutorial gave, so made few tweaks and voila! Big thanks to :iconvectoriadesigns: :D

Anyway, all, hope you like it! ^^

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
