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

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

Metal Art Prints

Metal Art2.png
These were done using a combination of my Photography & Digital Art
I am making them available as Metal Art Prints in my Art Store on Zazzle
Some i like better than others,
but I think they’d make great Wall Art for a downtown Loft Apartment
or on an exposed brick wall inside an old building
#6669
The metallic elements in the pictures should show up well on Metal Art Prints
#8048
It’s something different, not for everyone
but I am always looking for new techniques and processes
that aren’t run of the mill chain store art
#8401
I always buy Artisan Art & Craft for friends and family for presents
and I think these would appeal to people who are sick of boring art
8999-1
I love that you can customize the size to fit your wall space
9068-1
 There’s about 20 of them I have just listed in my Art Store
