One of my most exciting goals for the next couple of weeks is to clear out my craft room and get back to making fun stuff. Just for fun. You know... not for school.
As inspiration, I've been looking at clever, beautiful fiber arts projects by others. There are SO MANY of really creative folks out there making gorgeous things. Lately I've been especially fascinated with folks taking images of cells and amoeba, and scaling them up for us to enjoy the beauty of the microscopic world.
Karen Kamenetzky's quilts are simply stunning. This piece is titled Cellular Dance, and I'm in love with the vibrant colors and detailed stitching.
While I love quilts and other fiber arts, I also enjoy seeing (and making) 3D pieces. This enlarged Amoeba by Leisa Rich is fun and colorful, and brings together several different techniques.
As for wearable art, this scarf with cell structures is gorgeous and functional! Michele Banks's painting have been beautifully transferred to silk with a magnificent result.
What are you making these days?
