Every now and again when I get into a funk I need to do something creative. Last weekend I decided to take on a project that well speaks a little about me and my personality and it didn’t have anything to do with shopping.
My outfit consists a striped pants that are well the oldest piece of clothing I have in my closet. They are 19 years old and I love them. I thrifted the green top for $3, it can actually be worn as a tank or strapless piece. I paired it with the crop denim jacket (Cato) and recently thrifted flip-flops (Rialto) that had never been worn. I accessorized with turquoise jewelry.
When I took a picture of today’s look I realized my recent artwork was still hanging where I left it. It’s not where I plan to put it, but it shows you what I did.
I really do like to create things. It’s why I enjoy putting outfits together. I think of it like art.
When I started college at 17 years old ( I didn’t turn 18 for the first month I went) I was actually there on an art scholarship. I actually was involved in commercial art. I took two years at J.B. Johnson Career Development Center, which is now Alton High School.
I like being creative and recently I came across some subway art on Pinterest (love the site!!) and felt it was time I did something. Here it is…
What better way to do an art project than work with material I use everyday? I’ve got enough newspapers at home I wouldn’t run out. Besides using newsprint as my background I also cut out headlines from the paper and magazines.
I think the piece says a lot about me. What do you think? Has anything on Pinterest got you to crafting or trying new things?
