Musing Inspiration

April 19, 2017

I don’t know about any other members, but one of the things I like to do when I’m stuck, or just need a bit of fun and can’t get to my loom, is browse the Projects section. I thought it would be fun for me to share projects that I’ve  found truly inspirational. I’ve called this news item Musing Inspirations, because I often find the projects section to be a good muse, or source of inspiration. I don’t generally copy exactly what someone else has done, but I find it a great source of inspiration to see where other users get great drafts, ideas, etc. and us this as a jumping off point for myself (even though I already have a huge list of ideas of what I want to weave someday when I have more time, haha)!

In a recent trip through the projects section I found Kathie P’s Frost Crystals Project. This project is beautiful in both the painted warp and the twill structure used. I think the combination of these two stunning elements really creates a stunning piece. Kahie P, used a draft from Twills Thrills with a painted warp to create a piece all her own! I often found myself stuck between wanting to highlight the colors I have chosen for my warp and the structure I have picked, this piece is a great example of how we can do both! I think the draft Kathie P chose really highlights both elements. I’m so glad Kahie P shared this work here, for us all to enjoy.

 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this highlight and look forward to more to come. Please feel free to send me links to Projects which you have found inspirational.

Why? When you go to your groups, you will see a photo of projects that have been shared with that group. You also know if you are seeing a project there that it has been posted by someone in the gorup and shared specifically with that group. The...
