My Artful Friday #2: For The Milestones

My next combined project used the challenge ‘numbers’ from “Take a Word” and “Artist Play Room” had us to use our favorite color(s) in a project.  As soon as I saw the Take a Word challenge I knew my number had to be 50… for my Fabulous 50th Year! 
Using my favorite colors of purple, deep blue, and teal just made it that much more perfect. 
I decided on this piece I wanted to work with fiber art.  The soft purple and teal yarn on the 50 contrasts with the rough burlap background in both color and texture.
This piece won’t be completed until 13 July 2013…when  I turn 51.  In those open areas, I am going to document thru tiny art pieces (photographic still life, collage, painting, etc) the significant things in my life this year. 

I hope there’s enough room!


  1. This is looking great. Thanks for stopping by Posed Perfection and leaving me a sweet comment this week on my Ozark Apple Cake post. You were right...the movie was Sleepless in Seattle. It's one of my favorites. I hope you'll visit again soon. Have a great weekend!

  2. Happy 50th year to YOU!! I love your fibre art piece and what you intend to add over the year...what a fabulous idea! LOVE the colours!

  3. That is an amazing idea and a beautiful start to what I am sure will be a wonderful year! Purple is my favorite,too.

    (By the way, your cabinet organization blew my mind!)

  9. Awesome! I love the idea of documenting your life on your 50th year, and especially that you began with the photograph of your hands on a Bible. May your year be filled with blessed memories to fill your beautiful art piece!

  10. i want to see this when you're done - what a great idea! and i love your colors - love those colors myself! and i agree with arnoldo, i like that the first significant thing in your life is your Bible - we wouldn't get far without it!
