My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #286: Another Piece of the Puzzle In Place

03-16-2011 01:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place – but not without effort. One of the last things that I needed to think about was to obtain paint brushes for both the painting class and the scrolling class. Back in the days, my favorite brush company was very supportive about providing brushes when I taught larger shows. Of course they didn’t send new brushes for every show I taught at, but every couple of years, if I were doing a larger show I could request paint brushes an...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #284: A Little Demonstration Piece for Class

03-14-2011 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post is going to be short. I know I have said that before, but then I get to rambling on. I can’t however today because I have an appointment in Yarmouth and need to get it in gear early. I am happy to say that I got to spend at least a little time at the saw yesterday. I worked on some of the pieces that I will be demonstrating with at the lectures. Since this isn’t a ‘hands-on’ type of class due to the size and time constraints, it is up to me ...

Dragonfly vase in magazine????

03-12-2011 07:01 AM by TJ65 | 31 comments »

Well I thought I would share with you the outcome of the Dragonfly vase magazine article.I initially made the vase because I was tired of making flat things just because you wanted to work with the scroll saw and I was sure that you could make other interesting things that didn’t necessarily have to be flat. So the dragonfly vase born.I went about designing a patterns that would suit a vase and could be cut on the scroll saw and then went about figuring out a curve. While I was doing all th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #277: Another Milestone

03-07-2011 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was good. I finished the two sea shell painting patterns for the classes that I am going to be teaching. I am fairly happy with how they came out and I hope they are clear and understandable. Writing painting instructions is so much different from scroll saw patterns. Scroll saw and wood working patterns seem to be pretty much cut and dry, but painting patterns have many variables in them. I often find myself when doing a painting adding another layer or changing the tone here...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #276: Finding a Way

03-06-2011 02:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Some say that necessity is the mother of invention. I tend to agree. Need is a great motivator. Needing something has a way of pushing us to think outside the box and perhaps be a little more innovative than we would normally be. Especially if we have limited resources. Many of you know that I live in a fairly small place. I don’t have a real shop, per se, but rather do most of my own work in my kitchen and living area. My bedroom doubles as a storage room for most of my beauti...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #275: Anticipation

03-05-2011 02:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I think that sometimes the most exciting thing about an upcoming event is the anticipation you feel while making plans. As the time comes closer for me to leave on my trip, I find this to be the case. As the pieces fall into place, I find myself becoming more an more excited about the many things that I will do and people that I will be able to see. I am not feeling as nervous as I thought that I would be by now. There was a time in the beginning of the planning phase where I was wonder...
