because art is a daily practice
Fabulous !! It is perfect....the tea-dyed hymn is so good on the water colour paper and then on your beautiful textural woven background. And the old book cover is so beautiful, I love its 'grunginess'. I hope your new approach to creating works for you. It didn't work for me.......washing, shopping, dusting, cleaning and cooking all got in the way, mind you I do have whole days where I can ignore a lot of those things and just lock myself away in my studio room and create, but eventually my conscience gets the better of me lol. xx
THis looks fabulous.....love the texture that the woven background gives.....good luck with the new regime....getting that balance is soooo hard:)
back when i was a writer and my son was little, i did exactly what you intend to do. i worked from when he left to when he returned home with a break for lunch. it worked out well.thank you for the info on how you hung this. always a bugaboo for me and now the hangers of string i have glued on the back of my large paper wallhanings are coming off!! the glue is not holding. maybe there is some way for me to do this wire thing.i have a book cover, end page with the exact pattern. yrs ago a friend gave me a bunch of old bk covers and end papers. this is cool.
ps I see gayle says that work scheduel did not work out well for her. i do have an ability to leave dishes, dusting and so forth for later, even now. my house was always tidy more or less but i kept that workspace for me pretty well, which might include taking a walk in nature.
Wonderful piece Kimmie. Love the mix of very old and woven new, it all fits so beautifully. xox Corrine
I love his Kimmie! I love how everything just worked together and that old hymn with the tea dye stain is beautiful with the stitching.
So neat Kimmie. I like your approach with your art, for you and for us as you share these wonderful pieces. I also like the term "tramp art" as you mention in the next post. :)
Isn't it great when things come together of their own accord? This piece is lovely, and I'm so glad you included the detail shots--the neatness of your layers is pretty darn impressive.
another really special and inspiring creation dear KimmieSO glad you share your art and heart here in blogland!oxo
this is just so cool looking ~ love all the variety of textures and of course vintage music thrills me!!
This is exactly the type of crafting or tramp art I love and want to do. Just retired, so I have more time available than I ever did before. No excuses for me, and you all inspire me!
Wonderful piece. Good luck with your new "work schedule". I'm trying to come up with a similar plan. Certain days are "house work days" while others are "work on me days...excerise, relax, appts etc." and "art/computer days"...otherwise I tend to float through the days and not really get anything finished. It's still a work in progress...
This is really a beautiful piece of art.
