back online…. & take it further challenge…

January 8, 2008 at 10:40 pm (challenge, slow cloth)

at last… I hadn’t realised just how much I had came to rely on the internet until it wasn’t there…

I even feel I’m late starting Sharon B’s ‘take it further challenge’, so many of you who signed up have already posted WIP’s and finished work while I’m just gathering ideas together… anyway this is what Sharon posted…

“The key concept for January is a feeling we have all had, the feeling of admiration for another. Ask yourself who do you look up to and admire? Why? What is it you admire about them? This is a the first Take it Further challenge in 2008. Take the idea, develop it into a resolved design during that month and apply it to fiber or paper.

The colour scheme for this month is below. I came up with it by using ColourLovers If you have not seen this site before and love colour do check it out as there is lots of fun to be had over there.”

well I can’t get the picture of the colour scheme to appear here… so try this link

both the key concept and the colour scheme have set me thinking…

I have spent time on the idea of slow cloth… Sharon B posted about this here as did Elaine Lipson… but the person who I feel produces the best slow/story cloth is Jude over on Spirit Cloth… so the key concept of who do I admire… in the world of textile blogs… apart from Sharon B:) … has got to be Jude… so I’m thinking alone the lines of a ‘what if’ (Jude… do hope this is OK with you…) using the colour scheme for my fabric and threads (while I love blues and purples I never pick greens…so this should be a challenge…) and using some/lots of the new stitches I’ve learnt from Sharon B… I might even try to included one of ‘my doorways’ as I do intend to use some of these images in my work…
