glue it tuesday: week 7
Welcome back to the Glue it Tuesday lounge! (Thank you Rinda for that great term -- I'm imagining us all sitting around with adhesives and scissors, snipping away and laughing at who knows what.) The Pier 1 and Anthropologie catalogs came flying through the door yesterday (our mail comes in through a slot on the door, which is right next to the living room-studio, and it scares the devil out of me every day when it comes sailing in) just in time to do a quick teardrop chop & plop in the gluebook. Pier 1 gave me some decent snippets, but Anthropologie is becoming regrettably less cuttable by the issue. It used to be so packed full of color and pattern, and it seems to be all about gauzy air and vacant expressions.
Thanks for your thoughts in my last post about my wannabe washi -- I really wasn't kidding when I mentioned wanting to design real Artsyville washi tape. It's actually in the beginning stages now (!) Washi tape is something I've wanted to do for a long time -- I love the stuff so much that I can't think of much that would make me happier than having a collection with my own designs on it, and that is why I've been going gangbusters with the pattern repeats. It will not be an easy or immediate process, so it may be a long time even to get a sample -- and if the quality is good enough to move forward, it will have to be produced in baby steps, one design at a time. I'll keep you guys posted along the way, and try not to put on the caps lock too much if we manage to get a roll of Artsyville washi tape into production! ;)
