My idea was that people would create scarves or necklaces.
People had a great time playing with possibilities.
I wasn't feeling inspired to create a scarf. I wanted to collage. But I had trouble figuring out the best way to arrange the images. We had created larger collages earlier in the retreat:
I felt like I didn't have enough material for a large collage like this one:
In the end, I glued my pictures and words into a shoebox lid. But I didn't like the way it looked (and I don't have a before picture).
So, I added some yarn and wrapped the whole thing in glittery fabric.
I've experimented with collage, and I've experimented with lots of fiber art projects. As far as I can recall, this project is the first where I've combined the two. I'm calling it a success; in fact, I like the finished project so much that I hung it in my office.
