Debrina's Contribution to Kim's Fragments, Vestiges and Remains...

My contribution to Kim's Book - Pulp Redux
Full page spread - Pulp Redux (reversible - the page folds again to reveal the other half of the Scottish Flag, the St George Cross)
Here we go girlas! Not much but enough to make Kim happy, hopefully!! I'm using my new walnut stains, acetate and specially bought fibres, fabrics and paper for my contribution. E.g. the baby, above, is printed in sepia on acetate and then mounted on a playing card with the most delightful, beautiful filigree pattern on the back (more of that later). You can remove the baby from her pouch/envelope too, btw!  ANYWAY, to read all about my contribution, click HERE!

What precious little thing is in that envelope?

Ahhhh...an unborn baby: the promise of hope and a new start in life.  Children were often born on board ship on the way over to our shores or shortly after landing.


  1. You have perfect timing Debs! I am on the computer because I am too dang knackered to do anything else! (Kids and I just won 3rd equal in sand sculpture comp!) I'm just in the mood for some pulpy inspiration! Will go see your blog for the other half of my inspiration dose!

  2. Oh it is fantastic Debrina- love how colors reminds me of the sea,in it`s every kind of mood! The hinges are fabulous, big and heawy,and the lock on the envelope,too--made me think of the power it takes to labor a baby-small and fragile--- So beautifull, dear.

  3. beau travail..et les couleurs sont magnifiques!

  4. One more amazing contribution!

  5. Oh, I've been caught up here with life stuff and missed your post! Lovely Debs, love the poem and the ideas here. The scottish flag is of particular significance to me as my fathers family hail from Scottish origins, (hence the red hair!) so this is particularly close to my heart! I'm off to your blog to find out more, but these glimpses are fantastic! Hugs my friend I love it!

  6. fantastic Deb..amazing contribution...you and Alicia love those in vitro babies..maybe you both need another baby! those hinges are perfection...off to your blog to see the rest...

  7. oh yes, i love the fetuses and bablets indeed. i've been using them in my work for years and years... probably because i want another, ha! if i had enough dollars to adopt, my house would be filled with babies. :)

    i love those hinges and metal bits too, and recognize the mini envelope. how sweet! loving the blues and earthy browns.

    and kim! i'm so glad you are okay!! i've been so worried about you!

  8. My UNIQUELY styled Wallpapers. During some ten years, I have developed an extremely complex and unimitable technique that should carry some interest of anyone pursuing a serious artistic ambition and expertise. And it's quantity as well: by now close to 3 000 wallpapers, all created by me. Why not tune in on my rapidly growing art blog? Its Copyright Anyone, as it SHOULD be for this genre!

    I run Deviant Art in parallell:

    And I write poetry in several languages:


    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    Is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    Single Swingle


    Casualidad sopla la sangre
    de alguno señor desconocido
    durante los pocos restantes
    momentos del resplandor de faroles

    que se vislumbran tras el follaje
    flameando de las obsesiónes
    igual efimero como gotas
    del cinzano de la soledad –

    En aquel tiempo me levanta
    dentro uno incidente avejentado
    que en seguida palidece
    al camouflaje de abstraccion;

    chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
    ojos significan aún; con todo
    el sueño que hube evacuado
    tu escudriñas nuevamente.

    My Spanish poetry!



    Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

    Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

    À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.



    Das Leben dergleichen Halbfaßung
    der Welt wahr immer nicht wahr,
    nicht wahr? Die fristlos Entlaßung
    am Ende wird kaum wunderbar.

    So laßen uns Menschlingen viele
    besonders besonnene zum
    Zeitweilegem Zeiten als Ziele
    des Lebens halbfaßen darum.

    Fremde Gedichte


    Time travel is by up to date confused "expertise" considered logically impossible albeit physically allowed for by Einstein's equations, as Gödel pointed out. Strange fallacy! The Guy travelling "backwards" in his time machine immediately goes into "hypertime", so to speak, and what was "time" is simply one more spatial dimension. No logical problem whatever; I utterly fail to see, even, how this awful misconception could persist for about a century. OK, on return he happened to crash into my poor would be dad, so what? This calamity occurring somewhere in Universe imperceivable to me, the Flatlander. Etc. Do you follow? You should.

    My philosophy:



    And: reciprocity. You do me a favor promoting your blog on mine!
