I really like your print. I like the colors and all the commotion you have going on.

I've been out of touch with all of you for a while. Ready to meet up whenever you are. I'll check back to see when.

You have got some great talent! And a lot of self motivation with your challenge.

Your challenge reminds me of a saying that anything worth doing is worth doing poorly-- that is to say if we really desire to excell in a certain skill we will practice it until our failures become successes. In experimenting in different artist materials I learn a lot from my mistakes. Not that YOU are making mistakes!

Keep up the excellent work, hopefully you will inspire some of us to join in that challenge.
5  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Art Detour this weekend on: March 23, 2006 11:46:55 AM
I didn't want anyone to forget Art Detour. I will be there Friday nite-- don't know where yet but I usually start at the central library where the shuttles run. Maybe I'll see some of you out and about. The details...

The artlink Art Detour turns 18! This three day art event will take place March 24, 25, and 26. Art Detour hours are 6 - 11pm on Friday the 24th, 12 noon - 8pm on Saturday the 25th and 12 noon - 6pm on Sunday the 26th. Reported to be the largest, most well attended art event of its kind in the country, Art Detour had its start as an artists open studio tour in the spring of 1989. This is the event that started it all! The artists studios are still a big part of Art Detour; many of the studios are only open to the public for this event.

also look in todays (Thursday) insert in the Republic for all the event listings (I think it's called "The Rep")

I think it would fit in well on the Japanese streets... and I'm sure it will get some great compliments from your friends too. Nice job in combining colors and pattern.

You can fashion a skinny out of scale scarecrow out of old pantyhose stuffed with old quilt/pillow stuffing or rags.

Torso legs & arms--
Just put 2 stuffed pantyhose together with the waists touching and tie up the legs a little farther to make the torso longer and have part of it left for arms. Head--
Take another pair of hose & stuff the panty part to make it more round like a head and shred the legs to look like hair bunching it up.

Tie rags on for clothes and paint a face. You could also use raffia or yarn for hair.

Use whatever you have to tie this thing together-- cut stips of more pantyhose, duct tape, wire... Use whatever is in your rag bag to dress this thing... the more raggedy the scarrier!

I haven't made this yet, I just thought it up from an old lifesize doll that My mom made of ragedy ann-- she just stuffed it with old pantyhose and is was very nice. I think that using the actual hose as the outside matierial will make it very scary with the beige coloring.

I'll post once I make one.

Very nice work! I love the contrast between the ends of the piece- and how something like buildings can grow into an organic kind of monster- really a great piece!

If you like this kind of quilt pattern to actually construct a quilt -- take a look at a book by Gwen Marston called "Liberated Quiltmaking".  I found it at my library and decided to buy it later.

She gives a lot of techniques for taking the right angles out of many traditional patterns to give a folk art or ethnic feeling for your next quilt. The less precise requirements of the techniques make quilting less intimidating and more artsy.

Anyway... Thanks for the kind comments. Happy crafting!
