Teaching my pin-woven mini-tapestry class at the upcoming fiber frolic, and the theme is color. So I'm revamping my blue sky mini-tapestry:
To add a rainbow:
Same buttons and beads and textured fibers, with the addition of a swath of added color. I'll have to make sure I have primary colors, or at least rainbow-y colors. I may work up a sample and begin weaving the rainbow section on it.
I have an idea to add white to the section that passes over the cloud so it can look transparent, or at least pastel.
Ok, here's the upgraded cartoon:
Printed cartoon is a tad sharper (this is a screen capture). Smallered up the stars and moon 'cuz the button and beads are about that size. Cartoon is only meant to be a guide anyway.
Check out the link below for detailed images of the weaving process in this previous blog post:
Blue Sky - Mini Tapestry
Foam core board - 20" x 30"
4 looms per board (8 pieces, doubled) - 7.5" x 10"
Cartoon: 5" x 4 1/4"
Winding yarn bobbins. Looks like I've hit all the color groups.
Already have these supplies:
Still have to cut down the foam core boards and make up the looms. And gather up my sample pieces.
Alas, I had to cancel. Maybe next time. I'm certainly well-prepared (one might say over-prepared). ;- j
I think I'll see about having a fiber bee at Schuyler House some weekend and teach it there if anyone's interested. Therese, Steph & Jan might all be interested in playing.
