Colour composition is thrilling! I painted this acrylic on canvas a few nights ago. I may take further steps with this piece, but sometimes when it’s right, it’s perfect.
This is an experimental design of acrylic on canvas that I completed a few weeks ago. I call it: “Into the Bubble-verse”. My idea was to illustrate a universe of blue bubbles; however, without knowing that they are bubbles, an observer could draw other observations. I’m actually inspired to paint another similar piece that connects more abstractly to the idea of a bubble universe. (*giggles* I hope you can tell how much I enjoy this new hobby).
Alas I have gifted this piece to my dear brother for his birthday, after he mentioned how much he liked it.
’till next time!
Both designs are available in my LillyBoChic store on Etsy!
My dear friend helped me model a few of my apron designs- and honestly, the product shows so much better on a real person, as opposed to a mannequin. I will definitely continue to use models, and I will try to actively recruit friends and family for this.
Yes- this quadrilateral is supposed to illustrate a sleeve cut open and pressed/ironed flat. In the next step it will be clear why we did this…
We will use the sleeves to make bias tape for our sleeves and add an accent waist strap for our new re-fashioned top.
I will post future items on how exactly bias tape making works- but for now you can check out this blog at www.danamadeit.com to see how it is done.
The finished product includes bias taped sleeves, and a waist tie accent.
That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by!
I have always known that silk is one of my preferred mediums for design. The texture, weight, and structure of silk fabrics ignites my passion like few others.

..and at times you need to slouch and disappear…
One new look from the other day that captures understated sheer sleeves against grim black and white. Too much material creates a wrap look to add depth to any outfit.
One of my first and favourite flirty LillyBoChic Aprons. December has been (as always) a good month.
