Intention

teesha's circus: intention


Above is a link to Teesha Moore's post about intention and the Power of Attraction and especially how it can relate to your art, or rather how your art can help you relate to your intentions. Teesha is just so fabulous... so smart, so inspiring. I found this post of hers to be very uplifting and a helpful way to help me to make goals. I have struggled with that... sometimes the golals that come to  my head sound very selfish to me and I'd be embarrassed to share them. But I think I can at least make my list privately and see what happens after that.
So go read Teesha's post and then stop by and see her gorgeous journal pages for some great inspiration!

PS... darn I wish I had the money to take her Mermaid class!!!!!

I've been dyeing!!

Hello all, 
This week I taught a fun class at the store I work at. It's a form of Shibori called Itajime. Basically a form of tie dye but with Itajime you use clamps to resist the dyes instead of rubberbands or string ties.
 This one above is just a test but I LOVED it. I used Tim Holtz distress stains to color after folding it. Hey, Tim, what do ye think?
The ones below were done in class and we just used food coloring as our dye! These are mine but the students work was fabulouso!

 I sort of invented my own folding design here. I'm not generally a geometric, straight line kind of person so I folded this one in a very crooked, helter skelter accordian. Fun.
