Inspiration Workshop {Handmade} {~*~Gussy~*~}

Pin It
I'm really looking forward to the Gussy inspiration workshop.

Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!
Click for details
 
Each week a prompt will be given and we can take it from there how we interpret the prompt.  This week,

THE PROMPT
In true Gussy fashion, is everything HANDMADE. Do you have a favorite blanket that your grandmother knitted for you? Does your child play with a HANDMADE toy? What about that construction paper and macaroni creation on your refrigerator? What do you make or want to make?
 
I have so many things I would like to make so I'm going to share those here, and maybe sharing those ideas with you will help me meet the goal to complete these handmade ideas.
 
Number One
My first project is a painting class - It's on line believe it or not!
Juliette, my teacher, will share her drawing template that she uses to create her own owl characters, breaking them down into simple lines and shapes so I can easily create my own! 
 
Juliette says. "We'll go through my owl painting process layer by layer with 3 weekly posts of videos, stories and photos on painting technique, staying inspired, and life as an artist. I'll tell you all of the little tricks I’ve learned along the way too-what supplies work best, how to make everything fit together, and ways to really make your character and background pop!"
I'm so excited about the class.

Number Two
Sewing a zipper into a Zippered Laptop Sleeve
Char, with Crap I've Made is my inspiration for this tutorial. I've never sewn a zipper but it's on my list of things to do this summer.

Number Three
Create a Stylized Photo Shoot
Inspiration Photo Shoot from She Paperie

Head Visionary/Workshop Host - Jeanna of Jeanna Hayes Studios
Stylist - Suzanne of SHE PAPERIE + design boutique
Floral Designer - Kylee of Stylish Stems


Ok friends, please hold me to it!!
