Verne Foster's Diva Challenge 241
With guest blogger Paula Bramante CZT 15 Paula's blog is --- http://stringsandaurasczt.blogspot.com/
I (Lee Darter) am also a CZT 15 !!! Paula encourages us to try using Rankin’s cairn template as a string for this week’s challenge or trust in your intuition as you move toward your own vision of stones and ceremony with pen in hand and blank tile before you. To be honest I did not know what cairn was....so I Googled it---
A cairn is a human-made pile (or stack) of stones. The word cairn comes from the Scottish Gaelic: càrn (plural càirn).
Cairns are used as trail markers in many parts of the world, in uplands, on moorland, on mountaintops, near waterways and on sea cliffs, as well as in barren deserts and tundra. They vary in size from small stone markers to entire artificial hills, and in complexity from loose conical rock piles to delicately balanced sculptures and elaborate feats of megalithic engineering. Cairns may be painted or otherwise decorated, whether for increased visibility or for religious reasons. Cairns as explained by Wikipedia
Okay so now I am really into this!
An awesome artist I discovered on my Cairn adventure is Michael Grab.
