The Art of a Dutch Vink

I studied the dutch masters in Art History at school, however I think I can safely say that Chimene is a Dutch Mistress!! (I think Vink translates as bird...please correct me if I am wrong!!)



This is one of a triptych of hauntingly beautiful layouts from Chimenes blog header. She also happens to be very clever at using photoshop, as well as taking incredible photographs!

(Do you think she is going through a blue period like Van Gogh? If so it's working for me I love the depth this colour adds to this monochromatic layout)


If you would like to see Chimenes own choice of her top ten favourites for 2008 just click here and if like me you adore the 1920's then you'll be delighted to stumble across a series of beautiful retro layouts like this one throughout the rest of her blog here.

Studying art has never been so much fun, so sit back, enjoy and just think no hard wooden seats and boring old teachers here!!

Hi all,
Chimene is a very good friend of me and lives in the same village as I do. We scrap a lot together.
So I see all of here work IRL.
I just want to say that she doesn't use photoshop or whatever on here pics. (well, turning them in b/w or sepia) The altered pictures are "hand-work". She uses a lot of sanding-paper, scratch-stuff, paint and so on to make her pics look real vintage.
Had to mention this, because I think that this makes her work even more special.
She keeps on amazing me when I see her play with her lay-outs.
Rianne
