how it’s made video: heart nouveau celtic knot

Thought you might enjoy seeking the process of knot making. Be warned – it’s a bit messy. I never know exactly where I’m going to end up when I start drafting a celtic knot. It might end up simple or complex. Sometimes it doesn’t work at all. A LOT of erasing happens. That is all simply part of the process. If you’ve ever been in a class with me you’ve heard me say “you’ve got to make a lot of bad art to get to the good stuff!”

This Variation on a Theme collection begins with a lovingly hand drafted celtic knot. The knot is then digitized and manipulated into exquisitely beautiful kaleidoscopic mandalas and tiled patterns for you to print and color.

And here is an idea… I’m really trying to get my rankings up on my ETSY shop. I really need ratings in order to do so. If you buy any of my coloring page collection then leave a review on ETSY, I will send you a $4.99 coupon so that you can choose another collection for free! Please share this with any and all of your friends who love to color, I’d really appreciate it!

a little gift – coloring pages for you

snow2016We are “snowed in” here in North Carolina. I have to laugh because there has been barely a coating of ice and snow – nothing compared to the feet and feet of snow that are north of us. Still, the lack of snow tires and clearing equipment, not to mention the inexperience of many southern drivers with icy roads, it’s better to stay home and enjoy it.

Enjoy it I have!

heart_nouveau_00Thank heaven that we kept power. A little explanation of that can be found at the bottom of the post. I spent some lovely days and late into the night playing with the celtic knots I’ve been drafting.

heart_nouveau_09What do you think? Got a hankering for coloring? I’ve created four PDF downloads, each with ten kaleidoscopes and tiled patterns made from one celtic knot. Heart Nouveau is ready to go but the other three are desperate for a clever name. Anyone got ideas?

coloring3A little explanation about the southern landscape and ice and power: even with so little snow and ice thousands of people in our area lost power. A large part of the beautiful green that is the south is made up of Southern White Pine. It grows 6′ per year – very soft wood. It looses all it’s lower branches as it grows so it is very top heavy. Bad combination with ice as these 80′ trees tend to fall on everything – especially power lines.
