There's been a little progress on the landscape - the addition of the basics of white birch trees and some of the quilting has begun in the snow area....
- I thought THIS process was interesting and doesn't look too difficult to accomplish.
- THIS is a rather nice organizer bag.
- Have a peek through the gallery of THIS artist.
- There are a whole lot of ideas HERE for using up leftover yarn!
Today's quote... "You must always be willing to truly consider evidence that contradicts your beliefs, and admit the possibility that you may be wrong. Intelligence isn't knowing everything, it's the ability to challenge everything you know"
Creating waxed paper looks like a nice idea. Hmmm. Noted!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing if you give it a try!Delete
Great job on the birch trees. No worries, I can see your photo just fine, especially when I click in on it. Enjoyed the artist gallery. I see some ideas. Some good ideas on crocheting scraps even I can do. I do wonder if some of these sites realize they've just about covered up their page with ads? Its like wading through weeds sometimes. They should understand its hard for us ADD people to get through those ads.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I wonder if the ads you get are showing on my computer because I really do try not to post too many links that involve them. I thing I have an ad blocker setting on my computer that might be removing them for me, but maybe not at your end. Sorry!Delete
The wax paper lady was packed with intrusive ads, really hard to get to her point. I didn't realize you never saw them.ReplyDelete
No, I don't see them - at least not often. I know I have some sort of ad blocker on my computer but don't ask me how I got it! Must have been installed by the guy that set up my computer.Delete
This is just lovely. I think it's amazing that you paint with fabric.ReplyDelete
Fabric is definitely my medium - I know I can't 'paint' in the true sense of the word, sadly.Delete
Your Birch trees are so pretty and so nice and slender--they add a lot to the ambiance of the picture I think. Love the waxed paper pieces--but it looks a bit daunting for me!! Hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
The trees are going to change somewhat - perhaps tomorrow.Delete
I won't be making the waxed paper either, but it's fun to see and contemplate doing.
The birch trees are perfect. I am beginning to think that perhaps I should actually learn how to crochet.... I love the ideas in your link.ReplyDelete
I don't think the trees are perfect just yet...lots more stitching to make them more realistic (at least I hope so!).Delete
I learned to crochet when I was 12 and after my aunt showed me the basic stitch I taught myself, bad habits and all.
That photo you are working from is great subject matter.ReplyDelete
Thanks! Actually, all thanks for this one go to Michael.Delete
Sherry of createology: Your landscape is coming along very nicely. I love the Aspens you have added. Amazing Textures by the artist you linked. Today’s quote needs me to read it several times and seriously consider it. “My perception is my perception!”ReplyDelete
I read that quote several times too - one that does make you stop and think. Spent the afternoon working on the landscape and added more to the trees.Delete
Beautiful progress Mary Anne. Have a lovely week! Christine xxReplyDelete
Thank you Christine!Delete
Oooh... the birch trees are a lovely addition. They bring this to life.ReplyDelete
There are birch trees in the original photo so I thought I should add some to my interpretation (besides, I love birch trees!)Delete
I can feel the chill in the air!ReplyDelete
This is the kind of chill I appreciate!Delete
I love the way you are developing this one, Mary Anne! And do you know if there is a name for what you are doing by bringing the trees beyond the frame? I sometimes do that in drawings and I always wonder what it's called.ReplyDelete
I'm no artist so I don't have a clue about what it might be called. I'm sure there's a name for it though!Delete
