Dressed to Party, AP 189

Let’s Review:

Over the past six Thursdays I have been sharing photos and stories of my recently finished art pieces. Included below are photos of each of the items along with a link to the post. A lot of time and effort went into these projects. Seeing all of them in one post makes me very happy; without this visual reminder it would be so easy to forget just how many I have made.

It’s Not Over Yet!:

My adventures in creating 8”x10” fiber art pieces is far from over; I have many more virgin canvases just waiting for my attention. The process of designing and executing each of the compositions has been such an enjoyable experience. I love how portable they are and how relaxing it is to quietly sit and stitch on each canvas.

Just because I have a large number of canvases all ready for exploration doesn’t mean my journey will end there. Who knows what direction I will take after the last one is finished!

Thank You!:

I hope you will have the opportunity the browse through the photos to learn about each of the items. No matter how many you are able to explore I hope that you will save time to share your thoughts. Your insights and comments are important to me! Oh and one more thing___Do Polka Dots Dance?

With warm regards,

Cindy Anderson

Many, Many Projects:

I have really enjoyed the process of sharing my completed 8×10 fiber art pieces. Over the last several weeks I have revealed thirty-eight uniquely designed specimens. Thirty-eight sounds like a lot but I have more than that yet to go and in fact, as I am writing this journal entry, I have made plans for another twenty.

Lots of Fun:

Designing and implementing these small art projects is a very contagious practice. The manageable size and portability make them easy to work with no matter where I am. Typically I spend several days pulling together various combinations of fabric. After setting aside a number of groupings I draw on my supplies of beads, buttons, lace, recycled sari and kantha cloth, as well as many, many other options, to add as embellishments.

A Change In Technique:

Up until now I have used white stretched canvas as the background for 99% of my 8×10’s. Lately I have decided to cover the canvas with fabric. This new technique adds a more striking element. Even though I am very fond of the white canvas background it’s always nice to change things up. The last photo shared in this post includes a fabric covered frame.

What’s In The Future:

For now I believe I will most likely continue to wrap my canvases with fabric; however, I have also considered making my own wood frames and stretching my own, unpainted canvas over the edges. Who knows what the future brings!

Let’s Wrap This Up:

I could go on talking about this art form but, with so many more items yet to be shared, it is time to wrap this entry up. Below you will find two collages. Both contain photos of four original art pieces. Directly beneath the photo collages are the names and links to their individual stories. I hope that you will take the time to click on each of them to explore their unusual features.

Thank You!

Before signing off I must express my gratitude for your continued support. Without your participation this blog would not survive.
