This is my interpretation of Kathryn's prompt http://collagediva.typepad.com/souljournal/ Dream Weaver. I wasn't real happy with the end result of my weaving. I didn't find any "sweet spots". I attempted to make it look like a basket. The top blue strips are part of the weaving. I added flower pics behind them. It is a pocket, but I felt that small items would be hard to retrieve from it, so I added the brown bag to the other page. In that I have some left over weaving strips with my "hopes & dreams" written on them. I backed them with a purple paper and added fuzzy yarn. I figure I can use them like bookmarks.
While working on this I got to use my new toys-water soluble oil pastels! I used them to color the "basket". New toys are fun!! My sister (my WONDERFUL sister, if she is reading this) gave me an AC Moore gift card for christmas. So I bought a few fun items! I found a water pen to add to my supplies. The one thing I couldn't find was glossy card stock!!! I wanted to try a technique from the arttechnique yahoo group's 08 fat book technique swap. I didn't realize how difficult it would be to find!!!
