at the library

23 Jan

My trip to the library to scan 35mm slides was only successful in introducing me to discoveries while I was waiting on the scanner.  (I need to start over on the slide project.)  Last week I mentioned finding Bead and Button magazine.  The Jan/Feb 2012 issue of Cloth*Paper*Scissors magazine also got my attention.  The content features Mixed Media art, which reminded me of a collage workshop I did at Heart of Art in 1999.

I Ching #10 Treading(Conduct) 1999

What a great way to encourage abstract thinking.  Assignment:  prepare a collage inspired by an I Ching reading.  I knew nothing about I Ching.  I Ching intrigued me.  I read, studied and prepared more collages over the following two years.  This is another favorite.

Grace #22 I Ching 1999

Discovering Cloth*Paper*Scissors not only brought back memories of projects past, but also thru their website I downloaded an e-book that has an interesting journal project using fabric.  Perfect!  I have many remnants from recent sewing projects.  So….patterns and instructions are stowed and a journal is in the works!
