Skein + Paint Week 27

s+p July 14

A pretty and relaxing vibe to this week’s Skein + Paint. I hope you had a lovely weekend. xo

Skein + Paint is a collaboration between two friends who share a love of color, texture, and art. Their idea was simple: that the crossing and mixing of various art forms would inspire something more. By using each other’s work as inspiration, they would stretch within their own work, gain insight into how others view that work, and inspire themselves and others toward future work. Creating in their respective mediums, each week one of them will have provided an image as a prompt and the other will have interpreted that prompt. Dana will be bringing images to life by hand with pencils, paints, pens, etc. Maegan will be working with yarn coupled with photography. The image that was the prompt will be featured on the left and the image that was the interpreted response will be on the right.

Skein + Paint Week 26

Skein+Paint July 7

I hope you are all enjoying this fast moving summer (or winter).

It wasn’t my intention with this piece but now it reminds me of a quilt or rug. I tried not to make it too colorful but my little munchkins kept suggesting colors and there you have it. LOL.

Summer

Happy day! Summer has arrived. O.K. Not until tomorrow I know. My kids are still in school. It was a long winter. Summer break won’t come for another week. It will be a quick two months to enjoy. I began writing down things that we want to do, make, see, etc. this summer.

I left room to add more like eat lots of watermelon and corn, go barefoot as much as possible, do little paintings on paint chips from the hardware store, go to the fair.

I’m sure more and more things will come to mind. What are your plans for summer? Yay!!! Happy summer!

Crochet

doilymotifs
A few posts back I mentioned this blog. Also, a few posts ago I had mentioned I was collecting yarn for a summer crochet project. Above is the start of it.

Kate had written a post about creating a motif a day in May. Of course I didn’t find this until nearly the end of May but I fell in love with the idea and the motifs. Her basic idea was to create a motif a day for the simple pleasure and meditative qualities yarn work brings to you. I had to order the book but unfortunately when I did the book was destroyed (according to the USPS) in transit and so I had to re-order the book. Recently it arrived. It is wonderful.

I haven’t been making one a day and I have no idea what I will do with them at the moment but it is one my summer projects. I think it will be easy to fit in among all the general summer activity. So far I have learned some new crochet techniques and I have enjoyed working out different color combos. I also imagine doing a really large one in a heavy yarn. I think it could be incredible.
