Feeling Zen-full?

Acorn beginnings by Laura Wasilowski
Inspired by a walk around the block,  I rushed home to make this acorn. OK, I didn't rush home. I meandered home and took my time about it too, thank you very much!

But as I walked I kept thinking about this phrase: the creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
Woven collage created in a Zen-full state.
I spent a zen-full half hour weaving the collage for the acorn top (doesn't it look like a little hat?). This is what I have left over. What should I do with it?

you could make another acorn..but how about a little house with a woven roof?

Fence? Apartment buildings? Fur of a lion?

I really like how you weave the fabrics and using fusible makes it so much easier. I used some on my piece yesterday to fuse two pieces and give it substance and loved working with it. I have made pieces that have baskets and always avoid them, this would be perfect.

Make the curved cut at the top all the way across (as the top of a garment, bind it, stabilize the edges and even out the ribbons poking out and use it as a collar on the back of a jacket or something. (I know, wild, but it would be cute!)

I could see that piece as trees just turning into their fall colors...or leaves......or cut into those round bales of hay out in a field....or the ground in the country under a forest of trees, where the leaves have mostly fallen off.... I love the negative space of that curve at the top, and could see this as the tops of the mountains in the distance, where the curve is between two peaks. But I can also see this as a fun giraffe or cheetah or even a wild horse. The possibilities are endless!

I see a woven vase for a sunflower. The middle of the sunflower has the same woven fabric.

It looks like a great basket, or a hat for Huck Finn!
Maybe pants for a scarecrow!!

or build a little grass shack of woven and a hula skirt of the fringe, just sayin...

I think it's almost perfect just like it is. Might add a contrasting fabric outline at the curve, press the piece onto a background and hang from a natural stick. Walla! Abstraction!
