I'm working on a new tapestry design and, as always, find myself struggling with the composition. Perhaps that struggle doesn't happen for some but it sure does for me. From what I hear from some of you, it's often a challenge for you, as well.
So as I work out my ideas, I read and reread about both composition and creative process. I've got many books about design and also that address creativity. As I develop a composition, I often browse through my books and meander around the internet for helpful hints. That was how I found myself back at a blog I haven't visited in awhile. It's by Dianne Mize, an artist and educator who lives in north Georgia. I've know Diane's work for years and have always admired it. As I read her current blog post and then looked back at others she's archived, I realized what a great online resource she's creating.
Her tutorials are simple and to the point. Here's the link to her blog... take a look and see what you think. Challenge yourself to tackle designing for tapestry with some of these ideas in mind! That's what I'm doing these days.
