weaving.mania

yes. i am on a weaving roll. mixing my media and dreaming up all sorts of wild and beautiful art to flesh out.. here is my latest adventure. WOVEN PAPERDOLL ARTCARDS.


Draw out a simple image of a girl onto a 3" x 6" matte board or stiff board.


 I carved my images then stamped them onto the matte board cards.


Measure your holes out evenly, then punch them out or use an awl to poke holes into it. 


Grab a yarn needle and some yarn and weave across first. 



THIS IS THE BACK OF MY CARD.

CONTINUE WEAVING.

to improvise.

it all started one weekend when i was away in the country. i had packed lightly and had a lovely skein of art yarn and my art journal. didn't feel like crocheting or knitting my art yarn. had a need to weave. but no loom. thought of branches but then i saw my art journal. aha! so warped away and wove away.. bliss.




then i dreamed this up: i call it the Weaver's Art Journal. it has 5 loom panels, watercolor paper, graph paper, and a wire binding. perfect for the fiber artista! the one who loves texture and colors and mixing her  media. the one who can't get away from texture but loves to doodle and paint. this gorgeous journal is Made to Order in my STUDIOGYPSY shop.. :D i even carved a little stamp for the front cover image of a weaving.












We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, 
and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down 
is weaving when it comes up in the morning.

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out 

your door. You step onto the road, 

and if you don't keep your feet, there's no 

knowing where you might be swept off to.”


― J.R.R. TolkienThe Lord of the Rings





















The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. 

~Jacques Cousteau


































 








we had a spring adventure and drove ourselves to pensacola beach and showed the kids their first ocean. what an adventure it was. and oh what beauty the open sea is. and what wonder and might!




"We ourselves feel that what we are doing is

just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would

be less because of that missing drop."

Mother Teresa
