I spent yesterday designing new stuff. When designing new stuff, I usually start with the old stuff. I go through The Box that holds most of our past templates (Dylan traces these onto fabric to sew and stuff), setting aside ones that tickle my fancy.
This is what The Table looked like just before I got down to business-
I started with a vague idea of what I wanted to make this week. I knew I wanted to incorporate a claddagh into some sort of angel (thus the printed-out claddaghs), design a robot girl, and do a new mermaid. So I went through my old templates and borrowed a head or tail, made them bigger or smaller or fatter or thinner, and generally reconsidered, redrew, reexamined, rehashed, reorganized, restyled, revamped, reviewed, and reworked the design. My day ended with 7 new designs and a more-complete list of what I plan to make this week. I ♥ lists.
Today, I paint.
What possibilities does your day hold?
