This Sunflower inspired Dreamer was supposed to be finished over the holidays but as always, I tend to fill my holidays up so much that I don't get everything done on time!......note on time, I'm still pushing myself to create, regardless of the fact I work full time, I'm in denial! I figured that if full time teaching was all I did, then I would be sad and unfulfilled..... so enter ouch flower. It's alot of behind the scenes work and I struggle to juggle! I'm constantly thinking and musing about my ideas, It's really important to me that I keep developing my skills and keep challenging myself. So I did! Here's the process of making.
Starting off small.
It's starting to take shape at this point, less sea creature to more controlled design, can you see the sunflower forming?
I added a long tassel in black and some smaller tassels to finish the look.
This is certainly the beginning of a new direction,
something cleaner, simpler
... a bit of Scandi with bold dashes of colour
but natural to balance it out!
oh and don't forget the metallic too!
To be honest with you I think I'm growing up!
pss.. the stand was a thrift find, covered in that green plastic, but Mr Ouch peeled it away, sanded it back and resprayed it black.
I'm very pleased with the results and grateful for his help! xx
