I'm also determined to get the creative impulse flowing again, and am working on sketching two more scoliosis inspired designs to ultimately create a triptych of dresses.
I bought the jumper featured in this post from a charity shop stall at the Big Chill music festival; there's something about navy jumpers that are always classic. I then added some patterned tights and high heels, both bought using my Next gift voucher. The necklace, made up of imperfect cultured pearls, is my mum's - another twisted nature reference. Each one has its own beautiful, distorted shape. The leather handbag belonged to my great grandma. The - er - leaf hair 'accessories' were found at the scene! I've always liked blue and yellow together... Expanding on what I said about missing autumn in the last post, I felt that as well as cramming in creativity on that weekend, I also wanted to try to experience as much of the outdoor season as possible - like I wanted to saturate each of my five senses with Autumn in the knowledge that everything that came after would be a completely unkown quantity. Leaves always fall, seasons always change, but I didn't know what the next week held for me.
The mummy's scissors necklace project is still moving forward, and I'm really enjoying seeing each new creation! As promised, here is the updated list of all those involved so far:
