After my previous test and discovering the paint’s colors didn’t blend together like I planned, I wanted to see if I could use the paints with a stencil. I had an idea to use the paints with a stencil on a future project, but I would need to make the stencil myself. Since I couldn’t buy a stencil, I wanted to know what I could use to make the stencil that wouldn’t allow the paint to bleed under the stencil.
A few years ago, I made my own version of Clara Oswald’s dress in the Doctor Who episode, Cold War. While I made it, I hated how it was turning out and, after completing it, I hated the way it looked even more. I always wanted to remake it, but it wasn’t until 2016 I was able to do it. Because I made and finished the dress in 2016, I don’t remember a lot about the dress itself or how I constructed it, but I wanted to talk about it before it becomes a costume that gets lost in my closet and is forgotten before I can talk about it on my blog.
On January 31, 2018 there was a super blue blood moon. The reason why it is called a super blue blood moon is because it is a super moon, the second full moon in January (Thus making it once in a blue moon), and there was a lunar eclipse, which caused the moon to have a red hue (That’s why it’s called a blood moon). You can read more about it here.
I was very excited to see it, so I got up very early, got my camera and tripod out, and waited and took photos of it. Although I have very nice photos of the beginning stages of the lunar eclipse, I was unable to photograph the moon when the lunar eclipse was in totality. Based off other attempts to photograph something very dark with my camera, I suspected that my camera would not photograph the moon during totality, but I still hoped it would turn out anyway. It didn’t, and I’m still disappointed about it, but I’m still happy with the photos I took of the moon as the eclipse started to happen.
It’s been a year since I started working on my Elizabethan Whovian costume. During that time I’ve worked on it on and off, but progress on it has been slow partly because I ran into more problems with the bodice of the dress, and partly because my day job has kept me very busy. Despite this, I was able to work on and off on the hat for the costume. I recently finished most of the hat, so here is how I made it!
Hi everyone! A few years back, I used to talk about my favorite new home sewing pattern released from the year. I stopped doing this because I became I became so busy I couldn’t keep track of all the patterns I bought that year. This year, I decided to revive these posts, but only as a one month pattern haul. The pattern hauls will include all the new patterns I bought during that month that I want to talk about and, sometimes, what I plan on using the pattern for.
Hi everyone! In my last post, I talked about photos I took while on a hike. While editing the photos for the post, I also converted some of the photos from color to black and white.
Here’s what they look like…
I like how many of the photos turned out, but I’m not happy with some of the other photos. I didn’t have much trouble editing the photos, but some of the photos are not as impressive to look at as others. I did not include in this post the photos I really did not like, but it did annoy me that I didn’t like the photos so much I didn’t want to post them.
On January 13, 2018, I went out into the desert for a hike. I didn’t originally intend on going on a hike that day, but I was given the opportunity to go for one in an area that I normally do not hike in, so I decided to accept the invitation. While I was there, I took photos of the desert…
Hi everyone! Last year, in my post about making a 1950’s denim skirt, I mentioned that I bought two kinds of denim to make two denim skirts. I used one of the denim I bought to make the 1950’s skirt, but the second skirt took longer to finish.
Hi everyone! In a previous post, I talked about all the art I did in 2017 and shared some of my favorite drawings and Spoonflower designs. For today’s post, I wanted to talk about all the photographs I took in 2017 and share some of my favorite photographs as well!
