This one doesn’t really involve sewing, however.
I mentioned recently that I am taking a little break from sewing, and getting back to art. Due to lack of a scanner, and still trying to figure out how best to get all the things I need to my temporary drawing space, I have not been finishing any art.
Normally, I use a brush and ink, but I’ve been a little worried about spills!
I have something coming up this weekend, and will be wearing my chemise a la reine. Again. It seems like that’s been one of the only things I’ve worn over the past year! I’m not sick of it, but I worry that it seems as if I have nothing else to wear. *laughs* So, I decided I wanted to have something new, even if it was not much.
I made the mourning pendant you see at the top of this entry, and based it off of this one.
There are some differences, and things I wish I had done better, but I was feeling a little rushed and leaning over my kitchen counter while I hurriedly painted it. I think it actually looks best when viewed from a distance, so I’m pleased with it so far. We’ll see how wearing it goes this weekend.
It isn’t finished yet, I still have some ribbons to add (not to mention, should I pin it as a brooch? Should I make a necklace from it?), as well as getting some photos. Once I have finished those last few things, I’ll add the costume page with details.
At least now I’ve finally cracked open that new bottle of ink and maybe that will inspire me to figure out those last few things keeping me from finishing some art! 😉
