and now some digital work

digi background lace

This post was the prelude to the postcard pictured here. The seamless pattern created in the tute was printed on tyvek and then stamped over in some parts with metallic paint.
Over the week i got a message from Arlee in which she generously offered to share some pages on lace embroidery which i very gladly accepted. The embroidery is well above my present skills, but nonetheless, it gave me some ideas and a new direction.
And here's the latest on the lace chronicles.

The week has flown between studying Japanese and joining teams and further exploring Etsy and it's possibilities. It is a lot more than a venue for virtual shops, that's just the surface. Lots of time also spent on Facebook trying to sort things out. Feels like having a 9 to 5 without a paycheck. LOL!

In planet weaving the scarf was finished 2 weeks ago, but i' mot cutting it until i finish the rest of the warp.This is called discipline and also trying to weave something for the complex weavers study group i'm in before i get kicked out for not submitting a project .
i feel i need a dyeing distraction session :)

  1. I'd love to see pictures of that scarf, including close-ups, once you've got it off the loom. I *do* understand the "finish off the rest of the warp first" compulsion, though. -- Sandra

    p.s. Thanks for mentioning me in your Helping Hand post. It'll take me a while to figure out how to pass it on...

  2. Etsy definitely encourages lots of social networking and the making of virtual friends! I am glad to hear though that life is treating you well and that Japanese classes are progressing!

  3. like the postcard very much - nice connection between the layers. Your etsy shop looks great - good luck with it

  4. i really need to take the time to weave. i like the word complex. it just seems more like life. the lave is really starting to remind me of some sort of photo negative... i like this series.


interaction appreciated!
