I'm so happy to say that I approached a stamp company to see if they could make me some stamps and they offered to license my designs. They're launching the first 8 sets at the end of this month, and 4 sets every month thereafter :))))

Raw Sketchbook ~ First Raw Sketch in many years~ Woman Caresses Cat~

Posted by Camille C. on July 23, 2013 at 12:12pm 0 Comments

It needs a little detail and finishing touches...It was totally engrossing to do. It was done intuitively, with one given...I chose a scrap, pasted it in my new Raw Sketch Journal and used the scrap as a spring board.

overwhelming challenges

Posted by Camille C. on July 20, 2013 at 2:51am 0 Comments

Listen friends, there are some near-overwhelming challenges going on in my house and family...so if my presence on Milliande is less and less, or if I'm on and off, don't answer comments, etc, it's because of dealing with these events...Nothing life-threatening...just stuff that needs my attention more...BUT I refuse to stop doing my art work... Just know that you are in my heart and that I don't ignore comments purposely...Sincerely, Cami the Contender! <3 :)

Experimental Postcard Grid Painting

Posted by Camille C. on July 19, 2013 at 12:14am 0 Comments

Small grid paintings are a great way to experiment with textures. Here the experiment involved adding paper clay to water, dripping and turning the paper to create lyrical grid structures, glue, and other collage elements.

Milliande's Vision


~ For me what is sometimes missing in my life is a place to share with women, just women.

~ There is a primal inborn need in a lot of women, to connect, to nurture each other and to feel like you are able to come, sit by the fire , make art and talk about the beingness of your day.

~ If I call for that need to be met with my inner voice of longing only another feminine voice seems to be able to answer that call

~ Here I would like to provide a space for women to be women, in each others company with nothing to prove and nothing to hide .. just being made welcome to explore their individuality to creative art expressions

~ Lets sit around the fire and make art and nurture our aching souls

~~ Feel free to explore all the little Sub-Groups offered here
to find one that suits your own style of artistic expression

 


♥ A willingness to explore the creative arts viewed throught the eye of your soul ♥ Deep respect for the beauty and individuality of each woman who chooses to share of herself and her artwork in our Community ♥ A love of life itself ♥ An openess to reclaim your connection with the sacred feminine ♥ A knowing that to create is your first and foremost birthright and that by trusting your intuition you will know instinctively what to create and when you do it will be the perfect time, always ... Before joining please familiarize yourself with our Community Guidelines

Milliande Womens Circle , Art Community for Women

" Once there was a Woman... who had a dream ... a dream to sit around a fire with creative kin ... and so she found a few twigs of wood, a little log or two , some burning cinder ... and gathered in a little sheltered spot ... to begin ...

.... soon the smoke of the fire was seen some distance away ... and curious women came to peek ... so the Woman put a few more logs on the fire ...asked them to sit and warm themselves a little ..as they checked out her fire ... the women felt comfortable here and opened themselves to receive ... and as the fire needed tending to keep it alight .. the " Woman" quietly went away to gather a few more pieces of wood ...

... as the story goes ..the fire grew and grew ...as more and more women felt themselves strangely warmed by it ... felt a kind of soft feeling deep inside them that held promise of things to come .. that felt akin to a deep knowing ... that simply let them be ...

.... so they invited their women friends to join too ..to warm themselves, to feel that kinship shared .. and they arrived at the " Woman's fire " ..ready to experience all that was being offered ... some women came alone, some brought friends , some brought a piece of wood or two to share to keep the fire going ... some brought a twig as a way of appreciation for the invitation .. some took a log away to light a fire elsewhere ..

...all the while , the Woman's day was filled with gathering many many twigs, making the fire bigger and bigger, making a clearing to create a larger safe place for all the women on the path of arriving at her fire to be met with the same warm glow ..to be welcomed at this little sanctuary

.. and so they came .. and she was glad ..

... the days were filled with joyful laughter..with friendships kindled .. with women sharing ...with creative juices flowing, uncorked, released, shared, enjoyed , women bringing much of themselves to the communal fire ..a fire that in turn deeply nurtured them ...
... wood is precious and the Woman was grateful for every piece that arrived at her sanctuary , yet many twigs are needed to keep a fire burning ... it takes a little fallen oak branch to keep it alight for many an hour .. a few gathered twigs of birch will burn swiftly and make way for the next log to arrive that will sustain this creative fire as long as it is needed ...

...and so today .. 4 years later... this fire holds itself brightly ..the WOMAN can no longer even see the brightest spark reaching the horizon .. yet she can feel it deeply in her heart

... as gathering twigs all by herself was no longer sufficient to keep this large fire burning ...she noticed that many women had settled around her fire

...Deep within the Woman lies a knowing ,that to preserve this fire in the way it was meant to BE... for it to remain a sanctuary, to evolve naturally, organically, without the need to judge, rule, organise, chase, plan, no hierarchy, no leaders, no followers ... just women being women ... bare, honest, alive..
to preserve THIS..to grow THIS... she looks out at the horizon with a widen open heart ... asking for twigs and logs and branches and tree loads to be supplied by the universe ...
..and she knew that wood would come .. "
