haha sidetracked again. the above pic is my 'mood board', up till Call of the Small (sorry i don't know the blogger's name!) mentioned hers (?) in a facebook post for the I'm a Giant challenge, i had no idea that such things existed, nor their purpose. i had been moaning (again) to bf for the umpteenth time about the headaches i keep getting when i try to visualize stuff. he says i'm an extreme left-brained person (wow a simple google search throws up too much jargon for me to filter through), thus my difficulty and 'inability' to look at things on a whole. i don't subscribe to too many generalizations, but there might be truth to it. on a bus ride home, he talked me through some visualization exercises and....yep, i got myself a real whopper of a headache. :P
anyhow, due to these few incidences, along with the progress that many of the participants in the challenge have made, i thought to myself, "there must be a systematic approach to this, in order for me to be more efficient at all this 'creative stuff'", and dragged out all my little random stashes i've 'hoarded' over the years. OOOOOOOOOOOOO IT WORKS O.O. i was real fired up i tells ya. previously, i tended to do the same, i have little boxes of random fave items that i often bring out so that i can try and visualize putting them together but have never thought of approaching it using colours or 'moods' as a theme (eh?) sounds silly right, that i had to jump through hoops to get here, but truly, i often feel so ....disadvantaged when it comes to the creative arts. prob explains why this blog is so whinyyyyyyyyyy ;P come, let's see what i dug up!
Sans rightly assessed, i enjoy industrial styles best, judging from my hoardings of aluminum, teal, brass and steel coloured beads. i didn't even make all that many items out of them, i just enjoyed how they looked o.O
the filigree findings were used previously in my older photoshoot area. i didn't exactly have the same 'theme' in mind while building this 1:24 bakery/cafe(?) however now that i'm looking at these pics again, stuff is solidifying and yea....i think i'll use it still :P
the flat back plastic little bling pieces (donno their names) were really cheapo ones i bought at Spotlight, ages ago cos i decided to 'bling up' a cork board i had used for tacking my tatting pieces to....alas, i too had no idea what 'decoden' was back then, and it turned out rather disastrously. i think i might be able to take a photo of it, i'm pretty sure it's fallen behind my shelvings and boxes and has probably lain there for over 3 years :P
since 1:24 isn't something i've really worked with, i don't have all that many accessories to use and will probably have to make stuff from scratch. let's hope they don't turn out too miserable XD
speaking of storage....
how's your challenge coming along? i wanna see and play along tooo~!
