Every so often the very talented Tina Walker (who blogs over at A Dog's Life) organizes a collaborative between artists. This time 'round it's a weaving one! I was rather interested to give it a whirl, but I didn't have a loom so had to make due.
First up was finding something to start with. Located this round hoop at the ReStore. The doily was already in place, but was a rather hot mess. I removed a ribbon someone had woven in, bleached the doily, and spray painted the hoop.
I colored the stretched doily with some stamp pad ink and then added that lovely photo of my Grandma Ireland and some little flowers.
Added the little weaving at the bottom. Alternated with some fluffy soft yarn and some hand dyed string. The friendship pin & gold thread was the last addition. Loved the idea of a friendship pin..remember those from back in the day?
Currently my little wall hanging is hanging out with a few other things I love in my studio, but soon it's off to my Mom because she really likes that photo of my Grandma!
