  • Celtic Moon - Segmentation and Fretwork

    I've mentioned this project in some other posts, and here it is... our Celtic Moon. This design is definately not for beginners. If someone new to scrolling wants to try it and prove me wrong - go for it! However, it does require you to concentrate on the design when cutting.

    After a couple attempts between Sue Chrestensen and I, we finally got it cut, shaped, coloured and assembled. I enjoyed this project because it had more than the one style involved in creating it. I'd like to see more of projects where two or more styles of scrolling are used.

    Comments welcome.

    Take care

    That's a very nice design, Toni. I like the mixture of segmentation and fretwork - maybe at some point it will inspire me to do more than fretwork ...

      Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I think this would be the perfect topic for your London seminar, the use of both techniques in one project. It would definitely be a seminar I would be interested in.

        Beautiful and yes it does look beyond the beginner stage.

              Thanks Mike.

              LOL, no no art degree, no training. Sue has never taken an art class in her life, and I did in highschool and got thrown out because of a teacher that insisted art was as he seen it. Something I couldn't accept and said so. Giggle. I was mouthy back then.... giggle.

              I always loved to draw and find my best creations come from elsewhere, they amaze me how they evolve sometimes. We could never afford any instruction in art, so the most my mother was able to do was blank paper and pencils. I learned to draw horses from my passion with them, and the mines and landscapes that were abundant in my childhood. I took architecture in school and worked in that field for some time, where my drawings became very linear. It has been a challenge to return to free hand drawing for many reasons.

              I love what I am able to do now, and my heart belongs in art. I only wish I could make it my life.

              Thank you for your kind comments on our work, it is very much appreciated.

              Take care

                Thank you for the link to your post Toni! It was enough to get me off my stool in the basement and get in here, join as a member and make a post. I value your friendship a LOT ... and the quality of your work? ... goes without mention. One look at this project and you can see why I'm proud to ride your coat tails!! LOL

                    More you say Bill... LOL... well what would you like to see.... I have crosses and ribbions, animals/birds/fish and masks..... and some ah.... well interesting twists. Unfortunately, until Ricki is able to spend more time doing them on corel... I can only do so many. After I get some work cleared off my desk ... I'll see what I can find in our Celtic folders.

                    Sue Chrestensen is convinced that we need to have a group of scrollers near by to cut this stuff... giggle.

                            This is a wounderful design! Please do more Celtic style of work. Is the design going to be available for people to make?

                                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
