The Challenge: Magnified View 36" square.
Due date is September 8th. Yikes! Well, to be honest I hadn't planned on doing one since I have a couple of commissions working, the art items going out for Ms. Stella's Auction and then there's still that nine patch I'd like to actually quilt LOL.
But I got to thinking, 36" isn't that terribly big and the theme did pose some interesting ideas for me.
My first idea was to make a background looking like lined paper, then have words of something. There would be a large magnifying glass over part of it and what it would illuminate is the words (meaning) between the lines of text. Then I couldn't quite come up with what words right off and all I could think of was a list for a teenager from The Mom like this.
--meaning: be safe; I love you
--meaning: responsibility to others, I love you
and then my brain went blank and I took the idea to my #1 Critic and She said, "well, it will be seen my old mom's like you..." And I instantly knew what #3 should be---but it wouldn't be printable here so.. I'm sure all you 'old mom's--and not mom's' will have a good idea of what I said next. But I did interject after my best indignation speech; I Love You.
So back to the obvious of 'Magnified View' and thought of microscopes. Then I mused what did the brain cells for humor look like? I'm certain I have them (as evidenced by not hurling a shoe at my child's head for her comment), and I think after you give birth (or maybe just go thru menopause) as your 'power lunch' synapses collapse, they are replaced by a gazillion more humor cells because seriously, you need them for the rest of your journey in this life.
That led me to starting this: A Brain Cell of Humor
Then I thought since it was a humor cell it really ought to be in colors. After entertaining several schemes ranging from rainbow to psychedelic; I have chosen a 'Pop Art' color scheme.
Any ideas are welcome!
Thanks for stopping by!
