This is a portion of a completed piece for our yearly fiber group challenge. We have to create an art piece based on a poem that inspired us. We're meeting at my house on the 13th for our annual Christmas party and I'm looking forward to time with all the ladies to just sit and relax and see all the show and tell..and see what others have created for their challenge pieces.
Last month at our fiber meeting, Michelle led us in doing a 'pass it on' Zentangle. We each started with a small area and then passed our piece onto the person next to us. We had at least 10 of us at the meeting and my piece is below. I've added some watercolor to the background and stamped 'CCC' on the piece. The name of our fiber group is Complex Cloth Club.
This next piece was something I played with using gel medium as a transfer from an injet printed transparency. I added some 'tangles' after transferring the poem onto a hard canvas. I was happy with the way it turned out. You might have to click on it to read the poem by Walt Whitman.
This month at our meeting I led the ladies on making 'mail art'. What fun! I made two of these before the meeting and enjoyed the process..quick, easy and good way to use up some 'stuff' in my art room! You can see the process on RobenMarie's youtube below. Here are some of the mail art I've done. I used some old Christmas cards and wrapping paper to create the Christmas mail art.
