1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Seeking Participants in Art Project on: April 28, 2012 07:18:08 PM
Hi all,

I'm a visual artist seeking participants in an online collaborative art project. The project site is www.fillthisvoid.com

I want to know how you cope with the existential void that surrounds us all. How do you fill this void? Is it through connecting with others, through a belief in God, or through the distraction of television and celebrity magazines? Tell me what makes you want to live in the vast emptiness of the universe.

Your contributions will form the content of the site and will be used as the basis of further work. Contributions may be either text based or visual.

Please submit through the site or email contributions to submit@fillthisvoid.com

Thanks in advance,
Michelle.

PLEASE NOTE:
Text based contributions will be credited to you only by your initials unless you choose to remain completely anonymous or specify that you want your full name used. Images will have full credits attributed to the creator.
Your contribution may be altered and used in a future exhibition. It may also be published in a zine/artist book.
By contributing to the project you are giving me permission to use your contribution as I wish.

If you wish to know more about my practice, my art website is: www.michelleknowles.com
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Polka dot bear and bird (with broken wing :/) on: March 14, 2005 10:02:40 PM
I've been playing with an old cantankerous sewing machine that belonged to my now deceased great aunt.  I swear it's about 40 years old.  Anyway, I made these little critters - a polk a dot bear and bird.  

The bird has his wing in a sling because it is broken (actually it is sewed on totally skewif, just like the bears right arm is much higher than his left!).

  

A close up of birdy and his sling:

Not perfect, but I can only get better right?   Grin
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Handbound books using 'tapes'. on: February 16, 2005 10:53:15 PM
Hey there!  I'm new posting here, but have been a lurker for what must be years?!?

So, I got the urge today to share a little project I just completed.  These are my second and third attempts ever at making handbound books.  I used a 'tape' technique, binding over the tapes, which are ribbon, with embroidery floss and then connecting to the covers.

Here they are:

The next pic shows the spines a little better:

Thanks for looking!
