As I was working on the Repurposed Wire and Yarn to Make Inspirational Words for the Home, it encouraged me to find more ways to use wire. It’s my passion to create artwork from crafting mediums, so I find my mind will often steer in that direction while I’m crafting. I envisioned the wire starting as a “sketch” of a face and then beginning to transform into a more intricate art piece as the wire forming the hair was wrapped with either fabric or yarn. I became so excited with this idea that I began it as soon as I completed my other project.
I wasn’t able to get too much of the piece done last night, but at least it’s a good start. I haven’t been able to get this project off my mind. I continue thinking of different elements I’d like to add. Embroidery, beading, knitting? I can’t wait to get back to work on it and see how the artwork transforms.
