Hello everyone!! Can you believe November is here already???? OMG my Thailand/China trip is just around the corner …..panda, moonbears and ellies OH MY!!! I’m trying to not get too excited yet. I have so much to do and so many ideas from our recent trip I need to start on too!!
I took these photos you see of the maples in our yard yesterday. This is quite late for our trees to be starting to turn and my huge Japanese maple hasn’t disappointed me one bit!! The backlighting on it in mid morning is exquisite. Where else can you find those shades of red??? SIGH!!!
ABOVE IS THE BACK OF A HAND APPLIQUED AND PAINTED PANDA DESIGN I JUST FINISHED. CLICK THE PHOTO TO FIND 7 GREAT PHOTOS TO LOOK AT WHERE I AM OFFERING THIS BEAUTY FOR PURCHASE
Well maybe I spoke too soon…where else do you find those rich tones but in hand batiked garments from Bali that is!!!! One of my fave garment designers Annie has given me the go ahead to work with her designs to embellish as one of a kind ART TO WEAR fashions!! I’m so excited I could burst!!
What better “canvas” to work on than base garments which I can stand behind 100% as this is all I wear practically. Annie’s gorgeous batiks from Bali are the highest quality I’ve found and are artfully and elegantly constructed to flatter the feminine form in the most COMFORTABLE and sexy way possible
ABOVE IS A YUMMY PANDA BLOUSE WITH A VERY COOL ASSYMETRICAL HEMLINE
The other thing I love about working with these garments is they are mostly “FREE SIZED” meaning the cut and drape of the clothing fits a variety of sizes and figure types which takes a lot of the guesswork out of trying to decide what sizes to buy to apply my art on. My biggest challenge is choosing colors……I LOVE THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
ABOVE IS MY NEW LOGO FOR THE GARMENTS. YOU WILL SEE BELOW WHAT “HAUGHTY BUT NICE” MODEL I HAD POSE FOR THIS GRAPHIC!!
HERE IS THE LABEL YOU WILL SEE ON YOUR GARMENT AT THE NECKLINE
