The Design Process:

Turning Art into Wearable Fashion Accessories

It all starts with a Picture, I usually use my own Art to start with, this was using a FREE Royalty-Free Stock Image because I was short on time to make new designs and I loved the colors in it


Then it is Digitally Manipulated into a Circle


then it is Cropped

Copied Several Times, pasting one next to the other

this process is repeated to fill the design space



then they are  Merged into one image and you have your base Pattern

You can adjust the Hue a few times for different shades / colors


Give your Design a Name, the Finished design reminds me of FEATHERS

So you now have your Pattern “Feathered Spheres” in 4 Fashion Colors

Apply the pattern to the Product Template and whalaa… you have just taken Art and several Digital manipulations later, you have created Wearable, Fashion Accessories

The process start to finish is seldom visualized in it’s entirety, it usually takes on a creative life of it’s own

By the time I am finished, it is nothing like the idea I had in the first place

If you are open to the creative process, you come up with awesome results

I did not look at this  background-2090232_1920

and think i should make these:

The Art sometimes creates itself

oh Baby!…

I have so much going on at the moment, re-doing my website, my blog, my online stores, I seem to be all over the place

I haven’t been on here blogging for a few days because I have been busy with other things
I lost a lot of my art & cartoons, nearly all of them with a computer crash last year

Thankfully, I have managed to get some of them from other sources online, so I have been able to started listing them again in my Baby Store , it’s a slow process that takes a lot of time, doesn’t help when my internet keeps crashing every other day

I am at the same time working on Inspirational Posters, getting my Recipes re-done and working on my Pinterest Boards…once I have finished with those, I will be able to spend more time on my Blog, I will try to post something new every day, but they won’t be lengthy posts or anything too deep & meaningful for a while until I get some of this other stuff sorted out

Thanks for your patience, I haven’t forgotten you

I have more ideas and things I want to do and write about, than I have hours in the day, not complaining, I’d rather be busy than bored

I really can’t wait to get these things done, I have soooo many ideas, it’s crazy

Aesthetic – Daily Prompt

What is aesthetically beautiful to one person, may not be so to another.  My husband & I have very different aesthetics, he likes old, traditional, familiar things, I prefer abstract, modern, alternative things, something that’s “different” and new and makes you see things in a new way

I have been selling my art online for many years and I remember showing my husband some of my more abstract works over the years and remember him saying “I don’t get it”…it didn’t make sense to him…he couldn’t visualize what I was seeing.  His “literal” vantage point didn’t allow him to think or see outside the box

I think for the most part “life” is the same way.  We only see things from our limited perspective and viewpoint.  What is beautiful and endearing to one, is chaotic and a mess to someone else

I always loved Abstract artists like Kandinsky growing up, his work fascinated me from a very young age…I loved trying to see things from his viewpoint, what was going on in his mind when he created certain pieces

I always felt I never fit ‘in the box’ whether it comes to life in general or to my artwork.

I prefer to think there is no box…One of my favorite sayings is
