Recent Happenings



I got an e-mail from Bust , it was a call for a design contest for 'Dr. Martens' boots. I checked out the site and it looked so much fun, so I went ahead and played with their tools to create one! I used the basic tools they have on the site, but you can also print the design template and paint, collage etc. on it. If you have photoshop or other computer programs alike, they also allow you to work with them. I know there are a lot of artist on Etsy who'd create a hell of a design for this contest, so just wanted to let you guys know about it... Enjoy..! ;)

Other than fooling around on the net, I'm onto something very exciting! Last weekend, I ran into an antique shop in downtown Fullerton. I found some vintage materials that I fell in love right away! There was a box full of them, first I decided to buy about 10, then all different ideas about what to make with them rushed through my brain and decided to buy the whole box! The owner lady was very nice to give me a bulk deal, so it was the cherry on the top! I'm not gonna tell you now, what they are, because I'm not ready to burst the bubble yet... I'm still on the designing, and gathering the other materials/tools process, but they'll be up in my shop and here very soon...

P.S. The photos above; don't you love the look of floral silhouettes when light hit them from the back? They look like ink drawings...
