BOTTLE CAP ART
So while dusting off some of my BOTTLE CAP ART collection . . .and the thought of the big RECYCLING SHOW of HANDICRAFTS coming up in a few months in Montreal . . .
and the wonderful gift from my cousin Nibby H of 5 000 bottle caps he collected for me . . . .
I am into studying what I can do with them . . . .
and I came across this wondrous Bottle-cap FISH art all made with recycled materials . . . made by John UNGER . . . .so very neat all these caps lined up . . .
reminds me of hooked loops all so neat . . .
all measured and lined up perfectly against one another . . .
To SOME folks this is a great achievement . .
- the neatness . .
- the evenness . .
.- the perfection of it all . . .it is exciting to look at all the neat organization . ..
It is so hard to be such perfection that it must mean the work is incredibly good work right?
Never mind the colour ,composition,excitement of design . . .texture. . . .personal creativeness of the rug . . .
Therefore ,sorry, but I beg to differ . . .
. . .many rug hookers think that this is what they are to do to reach the level of a good and perfect hooked rug!. .. . . leaving all others that do not have these neat machine made looking loops in all their rugs to feel they have failed . . .
Some folks prefer the TEXTURAL LOOK of a Lumpy UNEVENESS LOOK in a Rug.
PLEASE LET ME REMIND YOU ALL to
DO WHATEVER MAKES YOU HAPPY in your Rug!!
That is what makes your rug SPECIAL . . . There is absolutely no ONE WAY or the OTHER . .
REMEMBER it is a totally PERSONAL CHOICE of what you LIKE that should guide you in your choice of hooked loops look!!!
Its a matter of PERSONAL TASTES ONLY .
There are no ''RULES'' set by a gang of ''WHAT THEY'' say loops should be!!!
My own Bottle Cap Fish would NEVER be as organized or neat as this one here pictured . . . .Although I love this one above and I might try - in the end it would look very different . . . .
more like ''ME''
and '' Vive La Difference'' If we all made things the same . . .how dull and boring . . .
So as I told someone yesterday who was stuck with deciding . . .
''JUST GO HOOK IT''
