so remember that time i told you i was making things? well i have finally finished them. i would’ve already shared them with you except
i’m too lazy a) the fabric i turned into a dress i wasn’t really happy with (i think i’m going to make it a skirt now) and b) the other craft was for the super cute engagement of BFF tori and i was going to let her share it first. i don’t think she’s going to though, so don’t worry i’ll post that later this week.
that said, the third craft, the globe, is finished! and i’m really happy with how it turned out. i wish i had about 5 more to play with because while i was doing it i just kept thinking of more ideas, so if you ever happen upon one on the side of the road, help a sista out. anyways, although it was a lot more complicated than i initially anticipated, it looks lovely (if you maintain a healthy distance). here’s what had happened:
* ecoglue, is THE way to go. best glue i’ve used, and i have quite the collection.
** miss south carolina is probably more accurate than this globe now. it’s crazy hard to get country lines correct; greenland looks like a gopher now, and i’m really not sure if this globe has a hawaii.
*** i learned this trick in typography, and it works much better on flat surfaces like paper or even canvas. applying sufficient pressure on a rounded globe that rotates in two directions simultaneously is less fruitful. p.s. i have no idea why this picture is pixilated.
**** squint people, squint! i had to trace these letters outside so the light was strong enough, but in the shade so that the ghost letters didn’t disappear.
***** just a glance at this pic please. if my type teacher could see me now, she would not be pleased. sorry boutcha hand cramps, “c” material at best.
****** check out new guinea(?) there. it looks like a baby seal. that’s pure talent.
