okay so i'm going for a group job interview, my first career-related job interview and one of the things is to present a 5 minute oral presentation to everyone, about anything you want
im considering conducting my presentation on object reconstructions anyone have any fave reconstructions that would look great up on a powerpoint presentation to talk about as examples? i have a few ideas in mind, but nervousness means i need a big prod in the right direction
I bought this pair of plain white canvas shoes by Dunlop for about $12 from Big W, my mission was to paint a pattern (because I love patterns) that is unlikely to be seen on anyone else's shoes (because I hate how everyone wears those checkerboard vans, even though the look so cool they are no longer unique).
Thus the Triangle Jungle was born (okay, okay, so I occasionally name my shoes....):
I saw this really cool futuristic metal lamp base in Target about a week ago. It was for $12 in the bargain bin because it was missing a shade for it, so I couldn't resist getting it, if not just to make a whole bunch of lamp shades for it for fun that suit my room that I could alternate between.
This top hat was purchased from Lombards for about $10, I used it for my school's dress up day and it had been sitting on my shelf ever since. The photos don't really do justice, the lamp looks so cool in real life, although I know a more elegant black lamp base would have suited this hat more.
I know checkerboard shoes are so totally overrated now, but I did paint these a fair while ago. They were originally a pair of pink and white camoflauge shoes that I bought at a shoe sale for AU$7, I wore them tons and got sick of the pattern on them, so I decided to paint them. I'm hooked on checkerboard so I wanted to reflect that in my shoes, unfortunately the shops agrees with me and stocked checkerboard shoes more frequently too I then coated them in a layer of Modge Podge to seal them. They held up really well, and were my favourite pair of shoes.
Anyhoo, originally I started with a green and grey checks pattern. Unfortunately, when the grey dried later on, the two colours were very similar, not must of a contrast, so I had to change the colour to make them stand out a bit more.
