Hi Everyone I'm Liz, aka the grid girl or late Liz, but this year I'm early so maybe I should call myself dottie Davidson. While last years final alphabet is not finished, still in it's various variation stage, this one is. Of course I haven't quite kept to the rules but I'm getting closer. With Damien Hirst in the news with his dot paintings, my mind went a bit wild and I thought of confetti, settled on waste dots from a punch press and started to play. All the dots live in the box and can be used to shape any letter or words you want. In the spring I hope to take them outside and have a trail of dotted letters through the woods, but for now here they are.
Wow!... How do you keep those letters so neat? Love the concept.ReplyDelete
So very clever!That's hella lot of dots!! So you're going to have dotty woods in the spring? :)ReplyDelete
I love the transient nature of your alphabet Liz, good for you for thinking outside the square (or dot in this case!).ReplyDelete
Dots in a Box! How did you know to stock pile so many and so neatly. It is such a clever use for them.ReplyDelete
so inventive ! I can't find words !ReplyDelete
Wow! it's great!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the lovely comments Jo, Terri, rObfOs, Little bit of blue, marie helene and Lau. I still have not finished my final alphabet from last years ALAW and so decided that I was not going to get so far behind. I needed an easy solution, and I love the ephemeral and transient nature of this, plus when i do it outside the paper dots will eventually become earth. As you can tell I am not a calligrapher, but love the shapes of words and letters, and watch with joy and admiration what everyone does.ReplyDelete
