I thought you might enjoy seeing the small challenge piece I just finished for Heidi’s Mixed Media Challenge…ending Dec. 31, 2010.
We were to use at least 2 traditional textile methods…I used rug hooking, applique, hand sewing & penny rug embroidery…and we were to add some unusual items (I used a few strips of clear plastic bags that I hooked into the moon) . Also crystal beads in the moon.
I also did some beading with wood and metal beads, added some wooden buttons and added some brass rings from the hardware store. We were to illustrate a favourite quote…and I chose this one. “Simplicity is indeed often the sign of truth and a criterion of beauty”. by Mahlon Hoagland
Below is a closeup of the beading…
I did enjoy doing this challenge…it is quite different from my usual work…but that is what a challenge is for, isn’t it? 🙂 To stretch ourselves!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
