I am currently involved in learning a variety of methods used in hand papermaking. Our group was invited to participate in the next installation of Tree Whispers. This is my contribution.
The next installation is scheduled for the Sharjah Calligraphy Biennial in the emirate of Sharjah, UAE April 6 – June 6 2016.
[As of 11/30/15 it is showing on the Tree Whispers Blog.]
Interesting! The shape of the holes punched in the tickets, and how many there are tell who punched that ticket. And that tells on which line you traveled. Hmm; tidbit for a story?
Today my daughter, son-in-law and I went to a maker faire; my first. Once they talked me into making something, I enjoyed the whole thing a lot more. We made a blinking pin, a noisy thingy, and a seed “bomb” that you toss in your yard or an empty lot somewhere or along a road. Later wildflowers will come up and bloom.
Lighthouse by the sea
I decided to add a touch of blue to suggest the ocean. Then finished it as a pendant.
I had hoped to find a few more shells suggesting pictures in the arrangement of colors and or patterns, but that did not happen on this trip to Fernandina Beach. Maybe next time.
This was a gift from the sea. The picture was there; I simply outlined the lighthouse with ink.
Out hunting for a geocache early this morning… Did not find the cache but found this: Dog Stinkhorn. Very strange! Learn something new all the time. #geocaching
