First it was all about quilting and then dyeing and then I started making books and zentangling and drawing. Now I have given up on limiting myself and this is all about my creative journey. Hope you'll join me on my journey and invite me on yours!
I have been putting together fabric, rusting things, and old lino prints for my erosion bundle and getting really excited about the idea of making something from the abused fabric. THEN I get my first copy of Cloth Paper Scissors. It has an article on wabi-sabi inspiration. Here is a quote from the article: "Wabi-sabi refers to the qualities of imperfection, aging, cycles of nature, and cycles of life. It values rust, patina, burnishing, tearing, staining, and decay." Wooo Hooo! Not only am I letting fabric rot outside for a few months and thereby adding rust, tearing, staining, and decay but I am creating using an Asian concept. Cool, eh?
