November's Inspiration - Edvard Munch

Yet another artist we haven't explored with the club!

This particular painting has a nice feel colour-wise to it for the yarn base this month as the base likes to produce matted colours instead of bright ones. It seemed appropriate for Halloween too given the title of the piece: "The Scream".

Yarns will ship on Monday - have a great weekend!

October's "Spoiler"

When I decided on October's Salvador Dali painting I looked at it and decided I wanted to go for something dark and moody. Looking at it closer, I saw hints of black with touches of blue that, if painted on yarn, could appear moody. For some reason Dali's paintings always make me think of the dark and mysterious and that's what I wanted to achieve with this month's yarn. Hope you like it!
