Spring's First Blush - Final Post, For the Second Time
Here is the new and improved Spring's First Blush art garment piece:
I started out with a necklace, but after taking it apart, redesigning and reworking it, I've ended up with a top and skirt ensemble.
I'm pleased with the ensemble - it is exactly as I envisioned. Believe it or not, this garment was a little more difficult in terms of design because I wanted to do something more restrained. While by everyday standards, this isn't very restrained, for my type of artwork, it is! I wanted something pretty, something with beads, but not so over the top as let's say, Garden Path was. I think I've done pretty well. I've used beads and sequins, and one glittery thread, but I've kept those things to a minimum. It was hard not to go overboard, as there is a danger in knowing a lot of different embellishment techniques: you want to use them all at once. The art of restraint is a hard one to learn!
Now, I need to work on that Wedding Suit!
Parting Shot: Garden Update. My son's plants are growing! We're even seeing tomatoes and not just flowers. I think my son will be surprised at how much his garden will grow while he's gone to camp this week and how nice it will look without the weeds, courtesy of his sister and me.
