you these? Well it was to make this…
When I thought of this idea, I didn’t know about our trip (it was a surprise) but I’m so glad I made it as it will be so useful to carry lotions, books etc.
In my humble opinion, I felt the bag looked so pretty with just the butterflies, but I’m really loving all those bright colours out in stores right now and decided to try a little colour blocking using my faithful DecoArt paint, mixed with fabric medium.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you might have read a few times that I’m linearly challenged. Meaning I cannot draw a straight line to save my life. Here is proof #1056. 🙁
The butterflies are painted using the technique shown here. I then embroidered the body of the butterfly with black thread right onto the bag. I also embroidered the antennae of the butterflies.
Here I am doing an awkward little foot pose, but don’t you love the contrast of the teal and the yellow?
Did I mention I am loving the bright colours in stores?! I wore this shirt with boyfriend jeans, a little neon pink cincher belt and nude wedges. I also wore a little straw fedora with a messy side braid. But why am I telling you all this? Well, for the last several weeks, I have been posting outfit inspiration albums and talking a bit about fashion trends over on my FB page and I thought it would be neat if I posted my own outfits for the week (maybe?).
