I started by making sections, triangles turned into geese, and a zig zag section. Squares. strips. and at the end, some applique, raw edge freely cut out of yellow scraps. Fit sections together like a puzzle.
I now see mountains, water, sky...the strong squares remind me of land, the triangles at the bottom here remind me of rapids. On the right to me it looks a bit like a boat.
a few crystals in flower centers. The petals are free to lift up and create texture. Metallic mylar turquoise threads for most quilting, white in flowers and around rapids.
I always turn abstracts around to see what I might see. This looks a little like a tree to me.
I talked to Joy at thejoyfulquilter and she said to enter this in her table scraps challenge this month, as it has "Z" zig zags and "P" it's pretty!
Now for some paint on paper...
more abstracts... which are difficult for me. I like to have some natural figures when I do abstracts but this was from a class online. We start by writing on paper, then gluing torn items onto that...
I used tissue boxes, napkins, magazines, glitter table top sequins and more. Then continue with paint, finishing with gold inks, and white and black gel pens.
I got some new white posca pens and you shake them then depress the tips to start paint flowing... usually. This time I gently started to depress it and ink poured out!!! OMGosh! All over the green paper used to start pens.
In order to use that, I tore it in half and began painting it to make cards.
|inside of the card, where I cleaned my paint brush between colors|
I found a quote to write on the card, as these were originally meant to be "permission slips for art"
As if we need permission to create!
"There is no right way to make art. The only wrong is in not trying, not doing", Lisa Golightly
I went on to make another one, with the white ink blobs...
paint blobs turned into roses...
the message on the inside was the quote:
disappointed in the Zen creativity workshop this week presented by Kate Ward
now in the free classes, you can't access patterns needed without signing up with the teachers for ongoing emails. Hmph, this is a change. I no longer sign up with random people as unsubscribing is not usually as easy as they say. Many times lately I un-sub. they say I'm un-subscribed, and the sales emails continue. I repeat the process, the emails continue til I block them or mark as junk.
The classes offered by Tam are great, not like that, and I'll start them tomorrow. Can only do so much.
Note: this creativity online workshop (free) through Liz Kettle embroiderer...
