Artist Weaving Collaboration




A group of mixed media artists got together to make a little blog hop of weaving creations. You really don't need a ton of expensive equipment, time, or space to make a fun little piece. I do have a little table top loom, but you can make something pretty cheaply for small pieces.

I decided to do wearable art rather than a wall hanging. Isn't this yarn so pretty? It was gifted to me by my mom who is quite the weaver, thanks Mom. I just love how pretty and delicate it is and can't wait to wear it!



Check out what these awesome ladies made whilst you are at it!

Wildflowers

This week's CSI case brings another Costa Rica layout. One afternoon we went on a hike up the road that went passed the lodge we were staying in. There were so many pretty little flowers along the way and a lot of busy bees!

Evidence used: leaves, flowers, string, animal

Testimony is written in haiku

The blooming beauty
Parades down the lonely lane
Bees adorn her head

Zumba!

Happy Tuesday. Today I am using a super fun background cut in What Goes Around. I used the 8.5x11 version, cut from white card stock. I dragged sections of the cut through puddles of distress ink puddled on my splat mat, giving it this fun rainbow effect, which was perfect for this photo of a Zumba-thon I recently attended. I cut the title from the fun alpha, Write On Alpha. I love the fun feel of this alpha and the filled in centers. I thought it just added that bit of carefree fun to the page.

Epic

Happy Tuesday to you! I have some photos of my husband's zipline adventure from our Costa Rica trip. While we were hiking canopy trails, he took to the air on a zipline tour. There were around 20 different stops along the way, with some significant distances. The last leg was 3/4 of a mile long and you have to double up so you have the weight to get all the way to the finish platform and not stuck in the middle. They had a photographer along and he got the CD.

The Boys Rule file was just perfect for these photos. I also added some things from Graffiti Greetings and Let's Make Music.

In The Clouds

I'm back with another Costa Rica layout! One of the really cool things we did was hike a couple of canopy trails. These trails are like normal hiking trails, until you get to a gully, then you walk on a long suspension bridge that goes right out over the tops of the trees. It's a really unique look, but more on that in a future layout. These forests are high up in the mountains. Cost Rica is pretty narrow, only 76 miles at the most narrow point, and is divided by a mountain range that tops out at 12,500 feet. Monteverde, where we went hiking is about 5000 feet. It is a cloud magnet, trapping the cloud cover that blows in from either the Carri bean or the Pacific, depending on which way the wind is blowing, enveloping the forest in a blanket of warm moisture.

For my layout I started by cutting a matte from A Walk In The Clouds. I left this white and placed on blue scripty paper. Next I cut the clouds from Happy Clouds in both vellum and white card stock. I used distress ink to color the card stock clouds in dreamy blues. For my title I used the last 3 words in Child @ Heart.

Everyday Should Be Caterday

I've been fighting the flu this week. I've felt awful and not like doing much, but I've had this snuggle buddy to keep me company and warm. I saw the adorable kitty printables in the shop and knew the Caturday one would be purrrfect to use for this photo I took for my daughter to show how good her kitty was treating me. I found this seriously cute heart paper that complimented my printed card quite nicely, that I stitched down, then grabbed love heart from Notebook Doodles for my main embellishment and the heart from Hello Kitty to add with my wood veneer hearts. A pile of string and sprinkling of sequins finished off the piece.
