I love board books so I decided to make my own.
When I started exploring fiber art 12 years ago, it took me 5 years to find my unique "voice". That included a LOT of experimenting and to see how I could work in this medium and enjoy every minute. There were days when I just got frustrated and hated everything I made. But I kept on working.
Before I left for Florida, I signed up to take a course from Alisa Burke. It is called "Ocean Alchemy". I thought that would be a perfect fit. Also, it was only $15 for 30 short videos. A bargain!
I've never been a good illustrator or a person who could draw something from nature. but I'm actually going to try next week because of this photograph I took on the beach.
This is definitely not a beach photo.
I'm on vacation. Finally.
I had a couple visit my studio yesterday, interested in my "Stitch & Slash" art so in getting all that work from storage, reminded me that I needed to change all the labels on my art that referenced old addresses and phone numbers.
This week, I've been experimenting with some techniques I learned from Jane Davies. Totally fun.
Many of you might know that I mount all of my Stupendous Stitching pieces onto wooden panels. My Stitch & Slash pieces hang freely or are made into totes or pillows. My Conversation series also hang freely since they are too large to be mounted on boards.
