Sunday in the Studio – Artshow Preparation

On Friday I received my acceptance letter for Ojai Day so the 5 week countdown is officially on! I planned on making a handmade banner for my last show which time didn’t permit, but the project is back on the table, I made some headway yesterday, and I’m determined to have it ready this time around. My ghetto-fabulous method of transferring my website font to fabric worked out perfectly. I just traced it straight off the screen with tracing paper, blew it up to the right size on a copier then cut the shapes from fabric, viola! I decided to block out a rainbow across the background and then blend it across by layering sheer fabrics, lace and gauze with white letters and eventually black stitching. I think it’s gonna look awesome against the white canopy when it’s all done

Another thing on my list of things to after the last show was make something on a smaller scale that didn’t take quite as long so I could offer something in the $10 – $20 range for tighter budgets. I didn’t want to loose quality and I wanted it to be handmade, so I decided to test out 3×4″ magnets using some of the imagery I already had in my sketchbook that’s gotten great feedback. I’ve cut and drawn a batch and now  it’s time to collage the day away and hopefully get to sewing before I head back to the office tomorrow.

I’ll definitely post more pics when they’re all done. I think making a magnet display is going to be super fun too!! I’m so excited to see the vision of my new and improved booth starting to come together slowly but surely.
