First steps to world of weddings

It's been awhile, since I started to tell a story about how I got into world of brides and the story about the first bridal gown I ever made All of this is just a chapter of my history with crafting and sewing, but it's the most important part of the story, how I end up to hear, to write about this.

My friend was getting married and was looking the dress. We visited in two stories and in one of those the owner was showing to her the dress my other friend had, when she got married. It's not that odd thing. Rental dress, in smaller town and less then a year later. Anyways I told that and the fact that I made jewellery stand to her based of that dress. She told that I should one day to come to show it to her. I was so nervous about the next visit. I was going to show my works for professional with about 20 years of experience of sawing actual wedding dresses! She was so supportive with me and wanted to help me out. It really started the next chapter in my life. Also was very helpful to be able to learn from actual wedding dresses, how those were made and it helped me to make even  more detailed works.

Now when I look that dress, what I was speaking, I'm not happy with it. Yes, it was the second dress I ever made and it good, but the problem was that I couldn't get right fabrics for it. I got the shape well, but now when I've done so perfect copies, I'm kind of sad that she got that early version. But my new contact fixed my problem with fabrics. For me even the small cut peaces, from her works were enough for my dresses. Most proud I'm from the fact that the dress is made from multiple peaces of lace and I got those so well sewed that no one can't find the seams. For this I painted the hooks, but at most time I've let them be white. It's so weird to talk about hooks with bridal gowns, but you get what I'm saying! @FromMadeByMeri

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
