These two mini’s are matted and on display at the Ottawa School of Art Miniature Print Exhibition.
They are stencilled gelatin prints, using nicely mildewed and completely battered gelatin. My fascination with circles doesn’t begin here, or end. I realized when I chose and framed up my prints for the Staircase Showcase that almost everything had a circular motif, prominent or subtle. And it doesn’t end there either.
I’m planning a future road trip to Canada’s East Coast, and thought I need something I can do will seated in the passenger seat of a van. Reading is fine for a few hours at most, sleeping okay for an hour, and gazing out the window is good for a few hours more, but then I get cranky. So I thought I would take up crochet, being small, portable and requires minimal equipment. I started out thinking in terms of scarf and mittens, but quickly moved on to…you guessed it…circles.
I find myself far more fascinated with colour and geometry than anything else, so I’ll be doing more medallions in different colour combinations, and five petalled flowers, and eventually put them together with a dark brown crocheted lace (I hope).
I’ve signed up with http://www.ravelry.com and you’ll find me there as….kaslkaos, of course. If you actually want the pattern for any of these, you’ll find them in my ravelry library, or I can send you links. These are really very basic.
