Top Ten Tuesday

Once again I am playing catch-up with blogs – Waaaayyyy behind! But here’s some goodies.

Absolutely incredible ballet/gymnastics – spectacular moves!

From Origami Joel comes some new amazing masks – and….they’re for sale!

You historians and geographers – and especially photographers – will enjoy this unique look at the United States – across the 40th parallel. Interesting project!

Tulle is more than tutus…..”Instead of painting with paint, British artist Benjamin Shine creates his portraits with tulle — you know, that netting fabric that you see on various gowns or tutus. Shine takes a single piece of tulle and proceeds to pleat, iron, and manipulate it into these hauntingly realistic portraits full of light, shadow, and dimension.”

In light of the new James Bond movie Skyfall opening this week, here’s a classic Bond peek with the ultimate Sean Connery….no pic, because that would ruin it – you have to click!

A collection of Kurt Vonnegut letters reveals this one about war and peace – an interesting commentary, given life today. From Letters of Note:

From Handmadeology comes 10 Awesome Reasons to Buy Handmade Gifts This Year.

“5. You’re helping the environment.  It’s always a nice feeling to ‘go green’ isn’t it?  Handmade items aren’t made in a waste-producing factory and shipped halfway around the world using fuel and energy.  Buying handmade (especially really locally) can greatly reduce your carbon footprint on the world.”

Patterned paint rollers – who knew? These are really cool!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Vi Hart, recreational mathematician, and I use her videos regularly in my college algebra class. Here’s a cool Halloween one….a few days late…..

And finally, Google Doodles of 2012

Have a great week!

Top Ten Tuesday

Back again! I do love reading Letters of Note, and this is a gem from Mae West to the RAF, during WWII.

From the TED Blog comes this interesting explanation of how we get plugged in to the internet worldwide. Pictures show what it means to lay cable across oceans.

This next bothers me tremendously. From Scheiss Weekly, Mamacita talks about education in words and thoughts that I really love. Here’s her take on textbook publishers who have sanitized Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. Did you know that Prentice-Hall got actual permission from Anne herself to change her diary entries?

These are some amazing nature photos! Not all have attributions, but I love what the author of the page says – nothing better than nature porn….

I am finding some amazing nature shots and video through StumbleUpon. This one is A.MA.ZING. The Aurora…. I’m just including the link because it automatically plays the sound….

Here’s a great time-waster – and lots of design possibilities. First design when you go to the page….

…and from there…..endless…..

 Weave Silk – an integrative, magical silk artwork. Another time waster that is absolutely fascinating.

From Designer Daily comes “20 Awesome Examples of Street Art.”

From Alternative Reel – a great list of Top Ten categories for movies…..interesting browsing! Just a few of the categories…..

And finally...Rainbow Origami Street Art. Just cool.

I have just discovered the joys of StumbleUpon….check it out and sign up. Lots of amazing stuff! Till next week – send me links to really cool stuff on line!

Top Ten Tuesday

I LOVE LOVE LOVE surfing the web – so many resources, and just down-right interesting things to see!

Some more amazing eye candy from Joan Leschenault and the Perth quilt show in West Australia. I really like look at FMQ designs in quilts.

Want some things and don’t know how to make them happen? Maria Brophy shares this inspiring look at positivity. Hawaii, here we come!

Look at the studies in triangles from this week’s JPG Magazine.

Light Traingle Swimmers by Claire Smith

From The Best Article Every Day comes a really creative use of stock images to tell a story. Every single frame is different, and yet there is a cohesive story. Very clever!

For you origami afficianados, here’s a post from origamijoel with the work of another origami artist, Eric Joisel. Isn’t it amazing what can be done with a single sheet of paper?

There is a really fascinating documentary called “Between the Folds” that is well worth the watch.

40 Famous Photographs – some you’ll recognize, some will be new, but they all tell a  story.

 Another entry from 365 Magazine – love the lines on this one!

Under the Westside Highway by Michael Elliot

I tried to find credit for this next, “The Beauty of the Night,” but can’t find anything through Google. This is a gorgeous set of photographs in a powerpoint. When you click the black and white, it slowly turns to color. Gorgeous!

This is really cool – the Sydney Opera House as an art installation. Lighting the Sails by Urban Screen. Incredible idea! Take the time to view the video.

If you’re doing some form of artist trading cards – or would like to – here’s a free online publications that just might help you: ArtTrader Magazine. They look really interesting, and you can download past issues.

What did you find on the web this week?

 

Top Ten Tuesday

What a week on the web! I do so enjoy finding great videos, among other goodies. We are so blessed to have these resources! Enjoy!!

From Conceptual Threads, a new artist in fiber – interesting installations….although I would beware the ball bearings……

And…a guaranteed time waster….but SO much fun! Stickman!

I love origami and have virtually no success at it….and that’s why these are even more amazing to me. Origami Masks and Tesselations from Colossal Art and Design.

From Vimeo is an amazing video of a HUGE wave in the South Pacific and the photographer Chris Bryan, who captured the few surfers who rode it.

BIGGEST TEAHUPOO EVER from UnFuzzy on Vimeo.

From Cool Hunting comes Float On – and since we’ll be in Portland in April, this looks like something I might try!

If you’re not reading Kathy Nida’s blog, you should. Every now and then we get a glimpse of teaching science to middle schoolers. She posted this which – having taught middle school – I KNOW the kids love. Enjoy! It’s quite a nice story.

From The Best Article Every Day comes 10 Misconceptions. Things we think are real…..now about those spiders……

From the 365 Project – results of their latest Top 20…

Another Cool Hunting entry – top chefs discuss their favorite cooking tools – at the Ritz Carlton in the Bahamas….now there’s a business trip…..

Cool Hunting Rough Cut: Kitchen Tools from Cool Hunting on Vimeo.

Enjoy your week!
