Okay Lax lovers, here we go... I proudly present my lacrosse wall art series collage. Available as a one piece, nine image design or you can pick and choose any of the nine as individual prints in canvas and on archival paper.
According to Thomas Vennum Jr., author of American Indian Lacrosse: Little Brother of War "Apart from its recreational function, lacrosse traditionally played a more serious role in Indian culture. Its origins are rooted in legend, and the game continues to be used for curative purposes and surrounded with ceremony. Game equipment and players are still ritually prepared by conjurers, and team selection and victory are often considered supernaturally controlled. In the past, lacrosse also served to vent aggression, and territorial disputes between tribes were sometimes settled with a game, although not always amicably."
With it's rich history and evolution into one of the fastest growing sports here in the States, it's time to be wall proud and art up! I hope you enjoy them, I'd love to hear your feedback.
Need some inspiration for your lax loving walls? Here are three style mood boards to give you ideas and inspire. Feel free to pin, post and print!
When author, TV personality and designer Kathy Peterson sent me an email saying she needs a man, I almost clicked the spam button. Sure, she and I are Facebook banterers keeping each other's spirits high with humor and accolades, but this proclamation had me perplexed. In reading further, that was just the tip of the iceberg, she needed five men. Now, before I lead you on too far and tarnish the respectable and admirable reputation of the talented KP, let me share with you her exciting idea.
In association with Flip-Pal ©, Kathy was assembling her team of Men, five men who create. Her invitation was for us to test drive the mobile scanner, that was awarded the Craft and Hobby Associations Innovation award in 2010.
To run it through it's paces with a different breed of animal, joining me are the talented Suede Baum - Fashion designer and TV personality from the Project Runway, Ken Oliver - The Accidental Crafter, Martin Amado - Interior designer and HGTV design host, and Mark Montano - Author of The Big Ass Book of Crafts.
While my resume of notoriety is dwarfed by these high profile men of design, Kathy knows that my magical world of Embellishments can put any product through a warfare of art and craft. I'll put it to the test and share with you how it does keeping up with kid's design, prop making and the overall theme overload we see here in the studio. I unwrapped mine today and have just begun to play with it.
Every Thursday during December, the guys and I will be updating our blogs with our Flip-Pal© experiences and sharing our creations. To keep with the "man" theme, I wonder if we all scan our manly abs, could we start a Men of Flip-Pal calendar? I better scan and crunch, scan and crunch
Crunch...1,2,3...Crunch 4,5,6... whew! Could I please have a stunt double, or an ab stand in?
