Summer of Color: Citron Turq Apron

So of course I am doing Summer of  Color  with Twinkle, Twinkle Like a Star Blogspot again!
I love this gal and I take every chance I can to unleash the artist in me to follow her color schemes and show my creativity.

Since of course I am doing more aprons now, I thought this year, in a different art form I would try, TRY being the key word there to do some Aprons and other things I make in the SOC3 colors she gives us.

This week we have Citron Green and Turquoise.

What a Challenge.

But I found a fabulous old skirt at the DAV and rePurposed it into an Apron!

I don't also do pockets in my aprons because sometimes I like to leave them in that dressy skirty style. To me, Aprons are a Fashion Accesory. You should eb able to wear it from

 Kitchen to Couture or
you like

So here is my apron for this week
to showcase our colors

Values Cards

I wanted to take something ordinary and make it Extraordinary! Isn't it funny though how that word is just Extra Ordinary put together? Anyway, I wanted to make it better than that! I was reading in the Right Brain Business Plan about creating Values Cards and I remember I had these tiny little cards that I never play with or do anything with. I got the ideas for the Values from the book Working for Good. Between the two I think I came up with a really unique idea and something creative as well!

So I thought maybe I could cover them and make my values cards out of them. Then I thought if I punched a hole in them and got some key rings to put it on that might make it even cuter and more special! So that is just what I did! I mod podged the covers onto the cards. I cut out the sayings and was trying to glue them down and a friend was texting me and teasing me about mod podge. I wasn't going to use mod podge but it wasn't working gluing the strips down so in the end I used mod podge after all. I guess Mod Podge does rock! :)

These are a list of the values I believe in and cherish for Heroes for the Homeless. I came to these by going through the “Right Brain Business Plan” and also the book “Working for Good”. I decided to do 30 for 30 because there usually 30 days in a month. I added a 31st which is my final reminder to remember to keep leaping. I think when we stop leaping and we get afraid. I put these on a key ring and carry them with me so I remember to always look at them and least one every single day!

Ironing: Recoverd: Remade into Fun

Being a retro kinda girl I actually like standing behind an ironing board and ironing. though is is just a table top I still would rather it be enjoyable. I hate this one because it looked all yucky and I haven't had a lot of time for art projects. So I decided to take recovering this on so I could iron some pieces for a modeling gig I had to do. Come check out what I did.

Old yucky cover
I put this cushion fabric down first

Then this sold stripe down next

Then I stapled the dickens out of it

Ta da a new cover

If you don't like something in your life, change it. That's what I do.

Vintage Eye Glass Case

All I wanted to focus on for 2013 was Art and Modeling/Fashion. What has happened is Modeling/Fashion took over. Not a bad thing but I was just itching to create, get my hands dirty kind of create, ya know?

My friend Keelia has inspired me back to my creative side and I had these vintage papers and a eye glass case I have been wanting to convert so tonight I dug my hands in and did some good creating! Check out my process from beginning to end.


And now the finished product...


Isn't it just so cute?
