My days off this week turned out to be mostly unproductive. While my brain was wanting to go go go, my body felt like it had been hit by a truck. I know I've mentioned this before, but if you are new-ish it might be worth mentioning I'm a chronic pain patient. I promise I will not whine about it regularly but sometimes its hard for me to escape it. I'm certain this bought probably a combination of going dancing, vacuuming, and weather. But anywho, its a thing. I deal. Sometimes with art.
Now, I'm gonna say that I suck at drawing, which is why I took up photography. And scrapbooking. The wonderful thing about scrapbooking is I can stamp, color, play with paper, and play with images. It also gives me supplies for art journaling and altering things like the above box. Its a combination of paints and washi tape. The other one I covered with scrap fabric. In fact, I was thinking of perfecting this idea and doing a tutorial. Any takers?
To be honest, the other reason for doing this was I am wrestling with how best to make the alterations to the New Look bolero. I didn't have it in me to take pictures of the first run and I needed something to do while I mulled over the possibilities as well as take my mind off of pain. I'm going to dig up Sherry's RTW tailoring tutorials as a guide for the pattern once fitting is done. I have a feeling I will be making several of these as they are the perfect accompaniment to sleeveless dresses.
Erm, so that's all really. Anyone else do some non-sewing creativity?
