“I don’t know where I’m going
But I sure know where I’ve been
Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday”
~Sung by the band Whitesnake, from their Saints and Sinners album
The photo collage below reminds me of this song because I am not sure where I’m going next, creatively speaking, but these pictures give you a glimpse at so many of the places I’ve been in times past.
If you’d like to learn how to do any of these art and craft techniques or make similar projects to any of the ones shown above, I’ve got you covered: I offer free tutorials for learning how do do just about all of this stuff. If you’re interested, I invite you to check ’em out:
“Bohemian Girl” Collage / Assemblage Art:
I made a series of similar small art pieces that all look somewhat like this one, but each is unique. I’m in the process of writing a tutorial sharing an overview of my creative process for the entire series. It’ll be awhile before the tutorial is completely finished, but I do have some of its component pieces ready for you to check out:
- Those 4 cube-like shapes at the top of the artwork are made of resin. You can learn more about resin crafts HERE.
- I used spin art techniques to create the spiral at the top of the artwork. You can learn how to do spin art HERE.
- I used several different media to paint the collaged images: Lumiere metallic paints, Jacquard fabric dyes, and Strathmore Bristol board.
I originally crocheted these circles to be the ends on a tube-shaped purse. That didn’t work out as planned; I never shared the purse pattern, because I wasn’t thrilled with how it turned out. I have another version of that in progress using flat circles that I’m much happier with. However, you might find the curved circles useful for whatever crochet projects you happen to have in mind, so I shared the pattern. I’m thinking of using it to make disc-shaped Christmas ornaments for this coming holiday season, but I am sure there are zillions of other ways you could use it if you are so inclined.
Any questions? The floor is open for comments. Thanks so much for dropping by today. I appreciate your interest!
