This card was made using a layer of handmade lace paper and a paper weaving. I wanted a way to fit in a short session of art everyday and with oils drying all over a small studio, this meant taking up paper projects. It took two 15 minute sessions.
The lines were ink blown on the paper ages ago with a straw. I just cut them up, wove them together, and stuck them onto mac tac. That was the first session. I love black and white. It's also refreshing to make non-representational art. I find getting involved in composition and the various art elements is engaging.
The next day I recycled a printed card by putting card stock over the image, adding my other paper layers and sewing them on the sewing machine. Paper clips worked like pins to keep all the papers from slipping while I sewed.
Our landlady just finished a kitchen renno in our apartment that was completely MCS safe. I stayed with family for a couple of weeks and came home to no fumes, a counter (before I had 8" on either side of the sink) and glories of glories: a dishwasher. At present, I'm convinced this appliance has made me into an adult capable of handling life ;) Who would of thought it all boiled down to the dishes? or more precisely, not having to do them.
