I also want to share just some of the ideas that came pouring in with question 2. Maybe you could try some yourselves. So here you go:
encaustic painting, star in a halo (with instructions and all - thanks Jim!), LED lights, wire, beading, combination of fabric and yarn, pipe cleaners, combination of thread and paper, paper lace, tell a graphic story, a recycled element like a bottle cap, quilling, basic ink doodle (in black, red or green), something from nature (wood, beans, dried leaves), something transparent (acetate or glassine), use and angel, wreath or a tree image in the middle, polymer clay, using the ring as the top of a mobile, tinsel, a photo, silver leaf, something suspended in the middle that will twirl.
That was just some. Phew!
Since I can't show you anything I worked on this week (the suspense will kill me!), I'll just show you that our mantle is decked out for the holidays thanks to our little C. She took it upon herself to make a strand of snowflakes while I went out to dinner with some friends (the type of get together where we all end up in tears from laughing so hard = great group therapy!).
So this morning...
D: "Not to be rude or anything... but isn't it a bit early to be decorating for Christmas?"
Me: "I agree." (outside of C's presence of course) "Who are we to stop a blooming artist?" (wink).
- Pia Wustenberg - She is taking recycling of paper to a whole new level.
- I love this video of Rob Ryan. Typically 'nice' isn't such a great word to describe someone, but that's what he seems like to me... just a really nice and genuine person (aside from the extremely talented man that he is!).
Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone!
