I loved this pattern from the moment I saw it. It's not only fun to tat, but there are several other derivatives you cam make from it. It can be used in your mixed media projects, or tatted from a smaller thread size and used as a bracelet or necklace, or use it as an edging for a cut T-shirt.
I love creating art from the first time I made clothes and changed the makeup on my #1 brunette Barbie all the way through to today, creating embellishments for journals.
I think I've done every craft in one way or the other. Usually the other! As an MIS I didn't have time for my arts, but I always felt my job afforded me an art outlet, just a different way than most think of it.
Back in the 90's I was able to get back to my art and taught watercolor painting on fabric. It was all the craze and so much fun. Some students had never painted before and would just stare at the white of the fabric. After 15 minutes or so I would just plop some paint on their fabric and give it a spray of water and put the brush in their hand. They took off from there with a smile. Sometimes we all need a little nudge, don't we?
Today I share mixed media projects like making embellishments, recycling boxes into journals that can be mailed flat and then popped open when they arrive, needle Tatting, which is not a lost art, and bits and pieces of mixed media assemblages.
Thank you for joining me
