I finally got back to a project I started last spring. It's been pushed aside while I worked on other things. This last weekend I pulled it out and started working on it again.
Also it's Wednesday and time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground.
My work space is closing in on me, of course I do share the area with my Teddy Bear collection. But they are beginning to get squeezed out. More stuff finished and unfinished taking over the shelves and drawers. Also on the wall behind the chair are photos from trips and adventures I've taken. Paris, Mexico, Boston, James River Plantations, Virginia, skydiving and bronco riding (not a real one) and of course the Oregon Coast.
The project on my desk is a fabric weaving wall hanging that I have been embellishing. I wanted to keep within the natural color tones so have added wood beads and cutouts. Recycled glass beads, old buttons, used guitar strings and branches from plants in my yard. It's been fun to play with. I don't feel quite done yet, maybe a few small additions. I like this kind of project, something that is easy to work on over a period of time. I'll add something then walk away, next time I come back I'll see something else that could be added. I think that's what I like about collage, on canvas or fabric. You don't have to see the whole thing at one time. Each time you come back to it you have a fresh eye. Of course some time is spend looking through files, drawers, bins and shelves for something that is the right color or unique item to work into the collage. That's why we have so much stuff. You never know what you might be able to use. I've been trying not to buy so much and try to use what I already have.
It feels so good to get back in the swing, I haven't worked on a collage since I started this months ago.
Hop on over the Julia's and see what everyone else is up to this week.
Thanks for visiting.
