How-Tuesday 18: how to get some sleep
|not my journal - wish it was!|
"Necklace?? Graded circles, lozenges, ovals, as 'beads' - each bead a different fabric (wax cotton, Liberty, Japanese, etc etc etc) linked with bold top stitching in blue or yellow/gold to showing stringing. French knots between?? Multi-stranded?? Broken necklace, 'beads' spilling down t-shirt "
"Stylised scarf as reverse applique. Two toning shades of same fabric, mixed together to mimic shadows of a loosely slung scarf round neckline. Tassles? V-fold? "
"Man's loose necktie or untied bowtie on woman's t-shirt - using actual vintage necktie or just shape in fabric"
"Bunting (jubilee??) or washing line of clothes as reverse applique across a t-shirt chest"
"reverse applique narrow spiral stripe around whole body of t-shirt in contrast colour"
"GET THEE TO THE CHARITY SHOP, WOMAN!!"
So many many ideas, maybe not all workable yet but that's not the point: the point is I'm really enjoying this process. I'd hoped to have some early prototype photos to share with you but the weekend, as I said, slipped by too fast. Instead, I'm learning how to stuff these ideas down on paper when they fizz up in the night, so I can get some sleep until I can make some time to get on with them.
When do you get your best ideas? How do you get them down til you can work on them later?
