Before I show you a photo of the latest finished barn, I have a question for you....
I'm looking for input and would like to throw this over to you for your opinions on the subject. Most of us know there is always a debate over copyright laws and I'm wondering what your feeling is about using images that are found on the internet (particularly on Pinterest) as a basis for creating art - specifically things like abandoned churches and houses (barns, too, of course). I live in an area where there are very few old falling-down churches because most have been converted to homes and thus don't have the look I like for my work. I would love to branch out into doing other old buildings beyond the barns I have managed to source locally. There are tons of images on the internet that are perfect but simply cannot be traced back to the person that originated them in order to seek permission to use them in my art. I know there is one school of thought that says that provided you use an image for 'personal use only' it's okay, but how does that apply if you make only one - but plan to sell it? What say you?
And now, here's the latest barn.....
- HERE is a fun idea for your Christmas decor. I think it would be pretty with some little twinkly lights inside.
- If you're planning to give money as gift this year, perhaps some of THESE ideas for a fun presentation might be what you're searching for.
- THIS is a really easy knitted cowl pattern that looks really pretty.
- There's a rather cute Halloween wallhanging pattern HERE.
- And if you go HERE you'll find a tutorial for an easy runner that would work up quickly for gifts at Christmas (or any time of the year).
Today I don't have a quote for you, but I do have a definition..."Stashcovery" - That moment when you rediscover an item in your craft stash that you forgot you had"
