A bit more about the exhibition



The week before the exhibition my eldest son asked why I used all kinds of material but never the small pieces of chainmaille that he made because he thought that would be so cool. I said I would give it a go but that they might be too heavy. In the collage above you can see the result of that experiment.



While gathering and packing all the stuff for the exhibition I came across a number of samples that never were explored further. There was still one piece of mountboard left and I laid them on it. I looked alright to me and so I decided to take it with me. My idea was to lay it flat.


When I saw the space to was assigned to me I realized I had to hang it. Luckily it was doable although the composition had to be changed. All these samples were created without thinking on how I could use them, just for the fun of it but they worked together fine.

So chainmalle added to paper is very well possible and I guess you'll be seeing more of it in the future.

Have a great weekend!

Where do I start?


The exhibition has come to an end. So many things happend but where do I start with writing it all down? The picture above is made by husband just before the exhibition opened. When I came in and saw all that space to fill I had a small panic-attack thinking I didn't have enough ... luckily I still had a lot of of stuff at home.


The rest of the pictures are made by Julie. Julie drove up to my little peninsula just to see the exhibition and I am so happy she did. It was absolutely fantastic to see her again and catch up again. 


Lots of people stopped by during this 5 day Easter exhibition and they agreed all on one thing: It looked definitely different. 



Love this collage of these plates. Being part of this exhibition has definitely been a interesting experience. I'm still trying to gather my thoughts so I just leave you with this blogpost but without a doubt there will be more.

Have a great week.

Gentle protest




I know, I know, it seems like video week here but I simply can't help it. I have to share this with you, it simply too important to not mention this project.


More episodes to come!

Have a great weekend!

Driftwood


The other day I stumbled on this idea of using driftwood to hang some knitwork. There is a lot of driftwood laying around in the house and therefore I couldn't resist to make my own little piece.

Just having fun ... 

Hope you're enjoying yourself too with your projects.

Belle point de Venise cinq point


Last weekend Jennifer Collier had a picture of the Belle point de Venise cinq point on her Fb-page. It looked more than lovely and so I had to find out how to do that. Googled extensively but couldn't find a good instruction, an instruction I could read. Therefore I called out to Deanna because Deanna's knowledge is huge and she also makes lace. Deanna went out hunting for information but in the meantime Jennifer came to the rescue and made a small video. 

Since information was so hard to find I decided to make a little video too and put it on YouTube so everyone can benefit. 

Happy stitching and sharing!

Pouring into bowls


Last week I showed you two similar watercolour paintings. This time the word connection is poured into a bowl. Since I didn't like the black outlining in the previous one's I decided not to outline these two. The consequence is that the pencil lines remain visible but that can't be helped. 


I really enjoyed making this small series and I might continue working on it when a new idea for a small but significant chance pops into my head.

Enjoy your day!

These three video's come from this article.
