Taking It Further

OK – First off, I am spending way too much time looking at other people’s blogs that are participating in the challenge. I think I’m going to have to limit my blog reading for a while. I didn’t get much further today but I did find a really cool tutorial on Celtic Knotwork. It’s here if you want to take a look.

I’m going on a car trip tomorrow to take my m-i-l home after her 7 week stay at our house so I probably won’t be able to blog until I get back. But I’ll have time in the car to further my design and work on my celtic knotwork to see what I can come up with. I’m thinking it will have a tapestry look and feel to it but not be needlepoint. I was considering using silk fused paper as the background but I think that will be too shiny. Instead, I think I’ll be felting the background with wet felting and machine felting and then add machine embroidered motifs to that with celtic knotwork and symbols. I think the main color will be a deep red for the quality I admire in people “passion for life”. I think right now I’ll also use black and copper accents but since I don’t have the full design down yet, things may change.

No “idea” book photos today but here’s my dog Symphony when she was a puppy. She’s still very inquisitive (read nosy).
