I can spin and knit, sew and tat. I even gave long-and-short embroidery a good stab. But give me glue and paint and I am immediately less competent than most 3-year-olds. Yesterday I went to a Women's Institute meeting, where one of the members demonstrated how to make 'zonkis' - wonderful animals and people made from styrofoam balls, pipecleaners, feathers etc. Very clever and cute. But don't ask me to make one! This, in case you're wondering, is supposed to be a sunflower.
I've become comfortable with glue when blinging shuttles, but I'm absolutely hopeless with paint. Put paint together with styrofoam balls, pipe cleaners, feathers, etc.... oh, my! I don't think my sunflower would be anywhere as good as yours. ; )ReplyDelete
I say, stick with what you're good at. You'll be much happier! : )
Good advice, Diane, I'll try to!Delete
Funny! You and me both! I am useless galore with a pot of glue, a pair of scissors and paint!ReplyDelete
Once, long ago, in a fine art programme, my project-in-progress got tossed out with the trash, as the clean-up folks thought it was garbage! Devastating! I withdrew from the programme and my life went in another unexpected direction!
Fox : )
Oh dear - I heard that an exhibit in a German Art Gallery was thrown out by the cleaners, so you're in good company!I wonder if that artist took a new direction??Delete
??? ahaaa,...ohh whwat a nice sunflower (good to be able to read ;-). Jane it's art!!! Art is persanlly and one of a kind!!!ReplyDelete
I spoke to some women who glue the knots in their tatting! Can you imagine??? I would never never never do such a silly thing! ;-)
I know what a horrible mess there would be if I brought glue anywhere near tatting!!Delete
I can glue and paint. I tried knitting, but I could never figure out the "purl", so all I did was knit and the pieces always turned out kind of funny. Spinning and sewing...eek! Not for me! Isn't wonderful how we are all so different?ReplyDelete
