Italy’s Silvia Bordin flips a Stroppel cane into summer mode by using white as her color for the solid layer. If you look through her Flickr photos you’ll see any number of variations on Alice Stroppel’s theme.
Has it really been seven years since we started tracking the Stroppel effect?
Maybe June will begin with scrap week since I’m currently fixated on playful pieces from discarded patterns. Because scraps are so disposable, working with them reduces the pressure to make a masterpiece.
And when you’re not so driven to make the perfect piece a spontaneous piece sometimes jumps out.
So we start the week with unpretentious scraps, formed with a cutter and strung on hemp. Thanks for teaching us not to take things so seriously, Silvia and Alice. Ease into the week with some no-fail scrap time.
