Everyday and Necessary!




One of my favorite everyday objects...the common pair of scissors. What a genius invention! When you need them, you really need them and nothing else will do. I've done what I love to do with my sketchbook images. This drawing was collaged and stitched together with some other drawings, then converted to a fabric print. In this instance I had a thermofax screen made from the original, then screen printed my scissors onto various fabrics. I do believe I'll take this same image and make a rubber stamp. I'll certainly let you see how that comes out! Remember how versatile your drawings can be. A testament to everyday art and everyday objects. Kelli

  7. This is so charming, as all of your art seems to catch the ordinary and makes it quite wonderful. You said you had a thermofax screen made. Is this something you order online or make at home?
