I have so much on my plate right now. I am trying to finish up this medical coding and billing class before I go to Japan with my boyfriend. I think I can at least get the classwork done and then take the exam some time after the trip. It’s been a source of many a panic attack. I am also trying to improve my art techniques and figure out what I’m the best at so that I can do some things on the side for extra money. Sometimes all the thoughts and ideas speed toward me as if some smart ass put the tennis ball machine at super speed and I’m trying to swat everything with my tennis racket. And I suck at tennis.
So, I took two of my nail polish Ebru projects:
I cut up the pink one kind of randomly. I noticed that they looked like creatures, so I pasted the clippings onto the back cover of my art therapy journal:
I also put some stuff on a page inside the journal itself:
Background is colored with oil pastels.
I had absolutely no plans when I went into this. I just wanted to get rid of the panic attack. I just cut following certain grooves and curves I saw in the Erbu.
Inside of back cover:
I got all my white clothes from the thrift store where my mum and I volunteer. She is the manager. The white clothes would have gone to Salvation Army or the bin, so I decided to take them in and dye them. I may give some of them back as I tire of wearing them.
I found a hippie bell sleeve tunic that had some stains on it. I dyed it an emerald green. I then got out my beads and sequins and did some sewing.
A little closer detail:
I bought the charm at one of those flea market malls years ago.
I collect Evil Eye things. I have Evil Eyes everywhere in my house and in my car. When one of my bracelets broke, I changed it into a purse charm.
The weather is getting warmer! That means it’s open season on white clothes that became dingy and stained.
Tomorrow, these clothes are going to be different colors. I shall post the results after I am done.
Dye, dye my darlings. =P
I saw a few nail polish Ebru (paper marbling) projects on Pinterest and decided to try it out. I had a bunch of cheapo expired nail polish that I was going to toss out any way.
I am not sure what I am going to do with these now. They’re kinda stinky to make into cards. I may use them as backgrounds for something multi-media or maybe I may frame them as is. Any suggestions?
I thought having all the windows open was enough for this project. It wasn’t. It stunk up the WHOLE house and I felt quite ill. Thankfully the fumes are gone. I don’t understand how some people would love to huff chemicals. It made me feel like queasy horse bollocks. Blergh! If I do this again, I’m going to do this outside!
This just reeks of The Handmaid’s Tale. =(
