dot art

While browsing around Textile Fabrics a few days ago, snipping swatches of pinks and blues to tuck away for future use, i came upon this amazing circle patterned silk fabric. i had to have it. it was expensive, so i bought only 1/4 of a yard and decided i could make it work for something. the colors and pattern seemed a perfect fit for our bedroom, and we've been needing some more pieces to liven the walls in there.

at home, i found a couple of old canvases in the basement, splashed with an odd mixture of paint from one of my failed artistic attempts. i stacked them, and jeremy nailed them together for me to make one thick canvas that would jut out from the wall. i covered it first with a thick cream fabric to give it some padding, and then set to work shredding and re-designing the silk and stapling it to the frame. here is the finished product. total cost $6.


i think it looks nice with our pillows and sheets.

You are now hired along with my Mom to add your ideas to mine when I decorate our future house.

Your creativity never ceases to amaze me, Kierst. PS. On a random note, Steven is in Houston tonight on business and he just called me. He was driving past Westheimer and Fountainview, not even knowing the significance that intersection holds for so many of us. Blast from the past....
