Webs of Thread


Top photo I stitched with gold and silver Kreinik threads of different thicknesses.  I rather like the web I created.  Bottom photo I used thread I found in the fly tying section of a sporting good store.  Love that it has variegated colors.  Aw, sparkle and thread make me so happy!  These two pieces may end up in one project somewhere down the line.

Journal page

This is about as good as this page is going to get.  I have pushed past the really ugly to get to mediocre.  At some point you just have to say enough.  The quote from http://blog.luluart.com.au/2016/01/29/colour-me-positive-week-5/ is  "If your dreams don't scare you they aren't big enough".  I am not sure if I believe that or not.

Work in Progress

Ocean Floor is my bead journal for January.   I took a mixed media approach in hopes of achieving a lot of texture.   It is pretty busy but I like it.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

Thanks to Sharon B at Pintangle for the instructions for the Bonnet Stitch.  I think it is likely that I have done this stitch previously but it is not one that I use on a regular basis.  I really must start using it more as it isn't difficult and it is interesting.

Experiments

It has been a while since I have had the time to play and experiment.  Well, at least with no expectation of taking it further.  I created this leaf with my Prismacolor pencil crayons on fabric.  I could add beads and/or stitching to it.  Or I could just file it away as an interesting experiment.  Ultimately, I enjoyed doing it and that is enough.

Journal page

I am working through a weekly journal prompt this year.  The prompt this week was believe in yourself.  This is something I am learning to do more and it feels good.  I used the Wonder Woman power pose on this page to tie in the word power.  Power is my word this year.  I plan to learn more about my power this year!    http://blog.luluart.com.au/2016/01/22/colour-me-positive-week-4/
