or did I see a squirrel????
Who knows, but it seems I've gone off on a tangent. I am woman and can change my mind. Right?
At any rate, some of my fabric scraps have been turned into these pieces that in turn will be turned into something else. I know what I plan that 'something else' to be, but who knows, perhaps another squirrel might cross my path. In the meantime....here's the results of emptying a couple drawers of scraps all over the floor and picking out pieces that would suit what I have in mind. All I can say for the moment is that the Christmas box looks shockingly empty and these will help to fill it. And yes, I'll share once this has morphed into something useful.
- I think THIS is an interesting take on adult coloring. Be sure to scroll down!
- There are a number of interesting tutorials HERE.
- Have a look at the art by THIS artist!
- And THIS artist too.
- If you are like me and struggle with getting mitred corners to look great, have a look at this detailed tutorial HERE. I'm going to try this! While you're there have a peek at the rest of her tutorials....lots to see!
Today's quote is from Bob Marley..."Some people feel the rain, others just get wet"
I see you have joined me in my travesl through "Digression City" hahahaReplyDelete
so easy to get led off the path isn't it?
Pretty slabs you've sewn there on those nice neutrals...
Hah - Digression City - I like that! I think I must own one of the biggest mansions there.Delete
I really like the scrap bag lady. Especially where she says start with the farics and ket them show you how to proceed. definitely my styleReplyDelete
I've always thought that fabrics tell you what they want to be - so I guess it's my style too.Delete
I know you have a plan but if you're like me when you're finished it will not be according to plan but according to what you decided then!......haha.......yes digression is a good thing......I loved the sky in the Beach Huts mini......looking at some of these artists works I am awed at the talent........ReplyDelete
Yes I have a plan of sorts - but squirrel moments happen so who knows what I'll end up doing!Delete
Looks intriguing Mary Anne! I love your digressions..... they always lead to something fun! Thanks for the links.... so many fabulous artists out there!! Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
I can never let it be said that I'm ever bored because my mind takes me off into 'digressions' all the time!Delete
Lovley pieces put together makes for a lovely idea to put together. What about a quilted jacket?ReplyDelete
The collage artist's work is amazing.
Nope. One thing I'm absolutely sure of - it's not going to morph into any type of clothing. I do agree it could, but it won't because I simply don't sew clothes.Delete
Well, I look forward to what your scraps turned into something that will turn into something else becomes. And clicking on the first link, I have to say... Querkles look oddly fascinating. :)ReplyDelete
I like the name Querkles too - fun! Still churning out scrap 'fodders' - to what aim remains to be seen!Delete
I wonder what your scraps will be!!! I have lots of batik scraps. Might try something soon. Thanks for the links.ReplyDelete
I wonder what they'll be too! I have an idea, but who knows what might happen next.Delete
Making fabric out of your scraps and then a project sounds interesting. Amazing artists you have linked. My Grandma loved the rain and would get in her car and drive to the beach and walk along the surf and record the sounds. She definitely felt the rain!ReplyDelete
I can only imagine the sounds of the surf and rain combined - would be pretty amazing. We can hear the rain here but nowhere near any surf!Delete
