I used some discarded shreds of t-shirt material to braid up these super-quickie summer bracelets today. It took me about 15 min to make all 3. They are so fun and FREE, that i plan to experiment with braiding in some metallic trims, maybe sew on some metal beads or fringe on the next batch and play with more printed or striped fabrics. In fact, i think i’ll use my time at the beach next week to stock myself a whole summer stash of these!
You asked and i’m delivering. Here is another insight into my design process!
The above artwork is a pastel underpainting i composed for use as the “peek-a-boo” splash of color under a cut paper project i’ve been working on. i really wanted it to be highly saturated and full of scribbly texture which will play against a very pale grey paper with crisp, black line drawing that i’ll be using for the paper cuts.
i’m really excited about assembling the piece and hoping it matches the vision in my mind’s eye. My goal is to post teasers like these on a regular basis, sorta like artwork cliffhangers, and then post the finished artworks a few days later as a fun surprise. Share your thoughts with me as we go. Feedback is the best part of sharing these pieces with all of you!
