Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
I think people shy away from fiber art at times, because it isn't like "typical" art.
You know what I mean. Art that you frame, stick a nail in the wall and hang it up.
In the past, at my exhibitions, I have been asked by people, "How would I hang that in my home?" I always show them the hanging sleeve and the aluminum rod that I provide and I can tell that some "get it," while others still don't.
And that's okay.
Fiber art is different.
That's one of the things I enjoy about it. :)
Lately, I have started wondering about alternative hanging methods and I stumbled across some other SAQA members that attach their smaller fiber art pieces to stretched artist canvases.
Intrigued, I decided to try it out for myself...
I always stock up on composition style notebooks when school supplies are in every store and super affordable.
(I know, I know...I shouldn't be talking about that, when this year isn't quite over yet!)
You know the ones I am talking about. They usually have a black and white speckled covers, are a great size, sturdy and oh, so practical!
A simple fabric cover turns a "ho hum" notebook into a great gift!
I've tried different ways to make the covers over the years.
Here are some pics from the latest experiment:
I think the cover possibilities are as endless as your scrap stash, so buy some notebooks the next time they go on sale and try it out! :)
