Heat gun again



Computerproblemen zijn gelukkig weer opgelost. Het was behoorlijk lastig. Al met al heeft het me meer tijd gekost dan verwacht, het was ook een vrij druk weekend, bijeenkomst, verjaardag, en toen die computerproblemen er nog bij, zodoende heb ik niet veel kunnen werken. Ik ben nog steeds bezig met mijn hittepistool allerlei stoffen te smelten, vooral het Angel wire is mijn favoriet op het moment. Ik heb het met diverse materialen gecombineerd, kleurstellingen uitgeprobeerd…..op de een of andere manier ben ik er van overtuigd dat ik straks ineens DE combinatie vind. Sommige combinaties zijn prachtig maar ik weet zeker dat er straks één is die er helemaal gaat uitspringen :-) Herken je dat gevoel? Dus ik ga nog braaf verder met experimenteren, ook met het hologram papier ben ik nog niet klaar. Nu ben ik niet zo geordend dat ik massa experimenten kan maken en deze documenteer (wat misschien wel goed voor me zou zijn) Ik wil er altijd iets mee doen, misschien omdat ik dol ben op recyclen? Dus alle experimenten worden vanwege het formaat kaarten op het moment. Dit zijn de eerste twee.

My computer problems are finally solved. It was very inconvenient. It took me more time than I expected though, it was a very busy weekend, a meeting, birthday party and these nasty computer problems, and therefore I couldn’t manage to get much work done. I am still busy melted all kinds of material with my heat gun, especially Angel wire is my favourite at the moment. I tried combining all sorts of material, tried a lot of colour combinations….one way or another I have the feeling that I am gonna find THE combination. Some combinations are beautiful but I know for sure that I am gonna find one that is really stunning :-) Do you recognize that feeling? So I am going to experiment more, also with the hologram paper. Now, I am not such an organized person that makes lots of experiments just for documentation (maybe that would be better) I always want to use it, maybe because I like recycling? So all experiments are turning, because of the size, into post cards at the moment. These are the first two.

Hi!
Yes! Yes! Yes! I recognize the fascination with the experiments and the desire to document...a desire that never quite becomes a reality.

Yes! I recognize the need to seek a most favorite method of working and the urge to recycle. This is a great post...and great post cards!

Hi Jacqueline
Great to see you back on the blog! These post cards are great, especially the bottom one, I love the change of direction with the swirls against the stripe in the under fabric. I know what you mean about the documentation, and I do find keeping the blog is a good incentive for that! And yes wouldn't that be great to find that something that really 'floats your boat'!

The top one is really yummy.
I too have started to make all my experiments into postcards with an explaination printed on the back about the process. Serves two purposes: firstly uses up the samples and secondly have always got a postcard made and ready for when needed.
Glad to see your pc problems have now been solved.

Great postcards. I too have that desire to find the thing(s) that really get your creative juices flowing. But it always seems to be just out of reach.

Your postcards are a great way to document all of your textile trials. Both of these are great!!
