Yarn Graffiti Art
A few weeks ago the kids and I headed out on an adventure.
We found a fun artsy town and I was
thrilled to see Yarn Graffiti Art
covering many of the towns benches, trees, sign posts, etc...
Part of the reason for my excitement was last year at this
time I was able to participate in a large
yarn graffiti art installation in Indianapolis.
Now honestly before this opportunity,
I had never heard of yarn graffiti.
Remember my wonderful friend Elyce?
(Elyce & Wayne)
She is a huge part of the art scene in Indianapolis!
During this gallery open house she was asked to
assemble a theme and team to produce
a large yarn graffiti art piece for the stairwell.
I can knit, my sister can knit so we jumped on the chance
to be part of something this creative.
It was decided to represent the seasons on each
part of the stairs.
My sister and I had the job of "spring base"
and "fall base".
We decided to create a variegated grass
by using a variety of greens and textures.
I love the way the "flowers" look like
they are growing out of the "grass"!
which was created against the landing window.
See the yellow pom poms (aka stars)!
(I helped make those too!)
For the base I decided to create a patchwork base
to resemble fall leaves!
My sister and I knitted small 4 x 4 squares,
which I then sewed together to complete the base.
I love the way they assembled the piece
with actual tree limbs and pom pom falling leaves!
At last Winter...
complete with falling pom pom snow!
Here is the stair well from above!
My Yarn Graffiti alternative identity!
I know that this is probably very different art from
what I normally share, however, I probably spent
more combined hours on this project than
anything I've ever done before!
Thank you for joining me today!
