I love my friend Joyce. She's funny, easy to talk to, and full of love. All of that adds up to a perfect playmate for my day off! I invited Joyce over for a creative playdate in my new studio. She has recently re-discovered her more creative side and started making jewelry - really pretty jewelry. So while she beaded and clipped - I played with sheers.
You see, this week I finally got a new permanent seat (cubicle) at work. Management encourages everyone to personalize their space. To that extent, I thought I would make a quick little project to hang. I mean, some of my closer workmates know that I quilt but beyond logcabins they really don't have an idea of what that is.
So that's where the sheers come in. I find layering sheers so interesting - I love how the layers create shadows and how the shadows lend mystery - mystery is interesting. Note to self - explore layering sheers more.
thank you goes out to Nadia who has inspired me with her free form layers.
I took some sheer scraps from the lilies, some pretty jacquard fabric (which for the life of me can't remember where I got) and thread to come up with a decent name plate. I decided the "palette" for my cube was going to be primary with green as the accent. I mean doesn't everyone pick a palette for their workspace?
Anyways - I'm all happy with the way it turned out. I didn't bother backing it - just has the felt underneath - the edges aren't finished in anyways. Its fun to just experiment for a while without some major art piece riding on every decision. It was also fun to give the lilies a break for a bit since I've been working on them all week.
Right now though, I'm waiting for my Misty fuse to come in before I can do anymore. You'd think that a city of a quarter of million people would have Mistyfuse somewhere in it but No! sighhhhhhhhhh
So what have you been up to creatively?
