Beautiful Day!!!! CREATIVE IDEAS!!!
I woke up early and as always, my mind was filled with creative ideas. After my morning Starbucks' Chai Tea Latte (my one addiction) and a walk with the dog, I sat "meself" down in my artroom. Actually, I stood cause I'm too energetic from the springtime.
Felt, Ribbon and Recycled Beads
I took two pieces of recent feltings (made from batts) and sewed them together with ribbon. The ribbon is from a pack of special fibers I bought last summer. Some of that same ribbon is in one of the pieces. I actually found a needle big enough to thread it through...... I have some beads I bought at the ReStore in Barre, Vermont where my daughter lives: http://www.myspace.com/restorearts It is a great place for finding all sorts of things. These beads were given to them by a bead factory (da). Many of the ones I bought are cracked. I chose a few and strung them on the ribbon. I like that they are re-cycled. I also strung one of my felted beads. I added a felted leaf at the bottom.
I also have some other bits of feltings. Some I cut from bowls I made that didn't quite work. I also added one of my spiral brooches (before the backing was put on).
Here are a few pictures of a work in progress. This will be a wallhanging. I may add some bits on the end. As with any art project, there's a fine line between overdoing and "leave it alone". I'm happy I started on this gorgeous day.
