So over the last few weeks I have been working on two skirts. One is a hand painted galaxy tutu, scrappy skirt. I wanted it to be a fun grungy/gothic hippy look to it. But it didn't turn out quite what I wanted. But still cute. I have lots of stuff left over, so I may make another one later today. The other skirt is a full quilted/patch work circle skirt in oranges and tans.
the skirt, can be worn any way...so here is a few photos of each side
i did write on a few pages just to test it out...and its works just fine. both books open and close and you can flip though the pages. lol. i think in the next set i make i'll put a ribbon or something so they can tie shut...maybe it will look more old fashioned too.
I have seen these everywhere. And some are super $$$ spendy. I still think they are cute...so I just randomly though to make my own yesterday. I really like them. I think I am going to make more, and hey...maybe I well put them on my etsy shop too. I just wont ask for so much. lol.
I saw this on pinertest and thought...hey! Anyways, I am a wine fan...and I been trying all kinds lately, I have been wanting to keep the bottles for a few other projects. Then I saw this, save the cork too! I used a bamboo kabob sticks I had laying around, and a marker to write on the cork with. And TADA, upcycled garden markers. I need a lot more, these guys don't even cover half of the herb garden...and I think I'll do some for the veggies too.
I ended up doing this 52 week project from paint the moon. Last week was growth. I was unsure of what I wanted to take for this photo, however it was very nice and warm out on morning...and the sun just picked up all these dew drops. So I got out my camera and starting shooting away. It wasn't till then, I though of this photo. I took this with my Nikon D5000 with the 35 mm lens and a close up X4 filter on it because I could not locate my macro (which I found after I put the camera away) As far as editing, all I did was mess with the contrast a bit, and cropped it. I have gotten a lot of complements for this one, so I though I would share it here.
