I like it! Paper weaving isn't exactly a revolutionary concept but I often like the look when I see it in other people's work. I'm also having fun trying out new camera angles. Photography is not my passion, and is frankly the biggest stumbling block for me as a blogger, but maybe trying something besides a straight on shot will excite me more. Gotta start somewhere!

40 West Arts exhibit for Lakewood Inspire Week. And I also ended up with this beautiful piece of painted release paper left over from the painted Wonder Under. As I mentioned in a previous post, I am working on a series inspired by the original failed project. Just trying to see how many different pieces I can make using the same colors and materials, although I like to throw something new in now and then. I wanted to make something with some of this pretty painted release paper, but seeing as it is purposefully designed to not stick to things I wasn't sure how to use it. I decided to try some paper weaving with newspaper to create a background that I will do some remnant collage over. I think. LOL. One idea leads to another and I never know where I'm headed, even when I get there. Here is how it looked after the weaving:

I wanted to call my blog Cat Hair Studio but the name was already taken. There's a good reason for wanting to call it that. Everything I make ends up covered in cat hair! Short of closing the door while I work there is no possible way to keep the cats out of the studio, and frankly, I enjoy their company. Once I ended up with a cat with blue paint on his paws! OMG, the chaos! LOL. I had to scramble to catch him before he tracked blue paint all over the house or tried to lick it off. There is a rule that applies to cats as well as people....DON'T EAT YOUR PAINT! This lovely glimpse of a newly finished piece is posted merely to amuse the cat lovers out there. Don't worry, the hair will be removed and better photo's will be taken. I'm thinking of submitting this piece and a couple of others that are part of a series to some magazine or other. I just have to finish everything first!
