- I can't criticize what I don't understand. If you want to call this art, you've got the benefit of all my doubts.

it becomes easy for us to be "our self" and create in our comfortable style... but sometimes our surroundings can change the way we view our own creativity....
case at hand a huge box full of ranger products that have been patiently sitting in my studio.
I am a creature of habit and happily work with what I have at hand... but as I started to work on the art for my fabric book and begin to teach fabric classes.
( please take a look at the classes that I will be teaching at
art fiberfest in October, I hope you can join me!)
I have decided that for the most part it would be easier to be able to tell people about a product that they could use... instead of my... "I do a little of this then I add a little of that"
Here are a few peeks at a project that I just finished for "Mixed nuts" I can not share what I did in its entirety but here are some of the products that I used to create it:
Tim Holtz™ Adirondack® Color Wash™,
first off I am totally smitten with Tim Holtz! (shush! don't tell any one!)
but once I got my hands on these I forgot all about Tim and wanted to have each and every color wash spay ink in my hands! it sprays on fabric like a dream! a dream I tell you! I have not been this excited in a long time about color! I have many ideas that I can not wait to try out with these!
Adirondack® Archival Quality Pigment Pens
these are amazing pens for writing on fabric and I have them all but these are the best by far!
Perfect Pearls™ Pigment Kits
I wanted to hate these but I have discovered that this are just amazing on fabric! and I can tell that I will be doing a lot of different things with these!
Inkssentials™ Mini Misters™
the perfect mist of watter! PERFECT!
I do not know what I did with out these!
Creativity is good... doing what comes natural is easy... having the courage to grow into a NEW YOU is part of the journey!
- The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
