I've had this web site bookmarked on my desk top as an icon since December
21, 1995. http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap951221.html "WOW, how the heck
could I make a mural or wall hanging from THAT photo?" I click on it first
thing every morning, most time it's pretty stunning. Just the colors alone
are awesome. What wonderful, beautiful combinations. Today's "Saguaro Moon"
http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap070926.html had me thinking about batiks
and hand dyed or painted fabrics. I remember a quilt with metallic thread
used for the flash of fireworks that was posted here awhile back and
thought, "Oh, those would make great twinkling STARS!" (archives, August
20th-Cluster Crash) http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap070820.html Maybe
use a sort of a free form fabric collage similar to the landscape quilt
technique for the swirling space dust. Crumpled and swirled silk chiffon,
reverse appliqué from under a black background? (archives, August 11-Cosmic
Hmmmmmmmmm.......one of these days, one-of-these-days......pondering,
pondering.....there has got to be a way to do this. Maybe blow the picture
up enough to get separate pixels and go from there. OMG, fordy bajillion
little teensy squares to sew together!! I'm not sure Miss Butterfly would
have enough time to sit next to me by the couch fanning, patting my wrists,
applying cool cloths and slipping chocolate slivers between my blue,
quivering lips until the seizures subsided.......but......
Take a gander through the web site, let your mind wander outside of the box,
and see what inspiration you come up with, even if it's only a color
combination you hadn't considered before. You can click on 'archives' and go
back and see past photos, they have a new one up every day. I love this
site, it really fascinates me......and honestly, it's not just the pictures,
I read the articles too! *wink,wink*
