I made the Blonde earlier this year for the Tome book but decided to use the other. Hand drawing on cotton and hand colored with pencils, appliqued pieces on commercial cotton prints and free motion sttiching. Unfinished.
Self #2, hand drawn on silk with hand-dyeing usng Dye-na-Flow and Lumiere and free motion stitching. unfinished.
More Squiggles. Hand drawn onto silk, hand dyeing with Dye-na-Flow and Lumiere and free motion stitching. Unfinished.
The unfinished pieces I havent decided to make them into what I intended as postcards or mounted onto canvas board.
Last year Fiber on a Whim had started a block of the month with Patti Culea's Tome series of 11 pages done with surface embellishments of all kinds with a Arca to house the tome. All the tomes was suppose to be on display March this year but of course I did not finish mine. Page 5 of this series inspired me to write this little diddy: imagine a full figured woman leaping across the page holding a grape vine naked, before I beaded her with a bra this came to mind.
How did this happen? How did I get pulled into blogging? So many doing it, blogging I mean. Why not? I was looking for a place to bring my more serious side out (I'm thinking do I have a serious side?)and post about my creative self. Wanting to get into more art than craft. We shall see.
