The paper jacket is done. This isn't the big reveal… sorry! If you want to see the real-deal, you'll have to join me at the Wearable Art Extravaganza (details below), or visit me in the studio on First Saturday/Sunday, October 4-5th…. or just wait until later next week and peek back here.

A couple things to note:

  • Event is FREE and Child-friendly
  • There will be a cash bar for beer & wine
  • This will be wicked fun - I've seen some of the other pieces walking in the show
Hope to see you there ;-)

Mood Board-ing

So we're just about 1 month away from the Miracle Providers Northeast Wearable Art Extravaganza! Tickets for the event are officially available for those wanting to attend {wink-wink!}. There's also a Facebook page for the event, for those who'd like to be kept up to date on details, or mark up their FB calendars.

I've had a busy and productive couple of weeks in the studio. Firstly, the final results of my very-blue painting sessions:

I've been dragging my feet on the clean-up. I'll just be a quick switch-a-roo of the contact paper, but there are more important thing to attend to… plus I may be pressed for more paper-painting in the near future. I can just FEEL it; a paper-feather shortage is in the forecast for next week.

And dah-DAHH-DAAHH! The final color pallet and fabric selection for my garment(s):

I should have my sketches and dress construction tidbits in this coming week. I have a few photos I could share now, but I'd hate to muck up this pretty pallet post with all those lose threads.
