To pick myself up after (or rather drag myself out of) the post-book-hibernating/post-crochet-disaster, I have been spending quite some time rebooting my creativity. To me rebooting means playing, giving myself permission to fail and make crap, and to try out any ideas and supplies I have been storing away. As the book was all about figurative projects, I have felt, as you might have noticed from all my mixed media posts lately, the need of freeing myself and be as artsy as it gets.
During my resent studio rearrangement, a few things resurfaced: 1,6 kg of (acrylic??) fibers
some 2 ½” squares of questionable fabric and paper tape. What if I combine them with a leftover piece of a table cloth
and punch some circles from aluminum foil using the Squeeze Punch (which I love)
add some of the fiber
cover them with pieces of leftover tulle
overlapping where one ends and the next begins
and free motion quilt some flower-ish shapes.
