Gee Robbin - the first thing I thought of was the route or map we saw in the Maritime Museum in Hobart, Tasmania, showing the route from England to Tasmania by one of the first fleets - it was old and brown. A collage is an great idea, Nancy. I could use one of my old strip maps with photos or sketches of the family when young camping.
This so fits in with my sketching classes, Robbin. Our teacher wants us to do a memory piece - because it is memory it contains distortion - which is what the theme of the term is.
What a sweet idea. I have my grandaughter (DGD) with me for the summer, for just that kind of thing. Maybe we should compare our joint projects. I look forward to your creations, as they come around. If you want any ideas, sing out. Having been a Girl Scout Trainer of Leaders, I have a few ideas to share. I think I did them for because I liked doing them, and sharing was icing on the cake.
Any opportunity for beading sounds good. Especially if cabachons are involved. I love making them. A temple such as you describe could involve so many lucsious batiks and watercolor fabrics. Just imagine all the color schemes you could run with! Here is a cabachon I finished this weekend. It is the face of a doll. I need to paint, write on, and stamp the doll's body, before embroidering.
Sumptious looking cabachon Robbin.What a rich colour.
Thinking about locked doors and I came up with the principal of keyholes and what could be seen through them,animals behind bars,fields with barred gates and loads of pics came to mind.I am trying to keep a journal on the go with plans and themes for whenever.
Ironic. When I thought of locks, I thought of keys. I have a fabric with lots of skeleton keys on them, and have wanted to do a key piece for about a year now. It won't gel yet. I want to show keys through the history of their use. No time to research it yet. Getting there.
Hmmmm, that's why I am sharing these ideas. I just don't have time for all of them.
Who has been doing what Robbin? Take care. Non-weight bearing??? Can be tough!
I had not thought of that Linda. I tried to sketch what could be behind a series of locked doors. The end of the passage thru the locks was a bit sad though! I will see if I can finish it a bit more to show here.
