Now, I have a new Messy Jess!-y (MJ!) to show! This will be my last colorway for a little while. I ran out of size 20 thread and it will be a little while before I get some more. I may however do some size 40 only colorways. I've been having fun using my messy dyeing method to dye some fabric and t-shirts and I've been experimenting with some fun combinations. (An afterthought- That is actually how I knew that these colors would look so wonderful together!)
But, anyway, this one is really pretty. It was another one of the harder to photograph colors though.
It is mostly pink with highlights of seafoam. Where the seafoam and pink mix are shades of purplish gray.
It's so pretty!
Of course, you've seen this Starflower design of mine many times before. I really like it. This one, I did the chains as BDS, and made them slight shorter. But, then the whole motif is slightly abbreviated. Instead of 6-6-6 for the smaller rings, they are 5-5-5, and the bigger rings 5-5-5-5-5. Then the BDS is 8 BDS - 1BDS
I play around with the number of ds between each picot depending on what mood I'm in and how big I want the flower to be.
I've been playing with the idea of making a larger piece made up of Starflowers, I think it would be pretty. These here are Livi's Ballet Shoes (January 2013's), Azalea Md, and Turquoise Lt.
Then, of course, the other is "Watercolor Sweetheart" from above.
So, I've been thinking I might sell some my Starflowers and Button Hairclips in the Etsy shop or possible my Storenvy shop. If I did though, I think I would change thing acronym from MOB to FAB. So instead of Motif on Button, it would be Flower Around Button. I think this would create a better selling angle, or make them sound more appealing. :o) I'm sure that there aren't too many non-fiberartists, and maybe even nontatters that would understand "motif". I could be wrong, but at least when it comes to searching for a hairclip, flower hairclip, and fabulous hairclip would be entered into my search bar before Motif Hairclip.
What do you think?
