MAKE ART THAT SELLS – WEEK 5 – GIFT MARKET

As Make Art That Sells comes to an end, I am feeling very inspired, grateful, happy, and looking forward to what Lilla has in store for Part B. This weeks assignment was to create a lush zipper pouch using imagery, whether it be traditional or digitally created,  from stuff we collect. I decided to use drawn images from my vintage children's clothing collection and old bobbins and thread that I have collected over the years from garage sales and thrift stores. I call it "sew happy" - not only because this piece makes me sooo happy, but this class has made me sooo happy! You guys, a class taught by the Lilla Rogers, need I say anymore? Okay, I might a little, but seriously this woman is amazing. She is on top of her game and has so so so much knowledge of the illustration world. If you get the chance I highly recommend taking this class. So, here is what I've come up with for my zipper pouch: denise_holmes_sewhappy_1a_week5_730

It's now back to my regularly scheduled life. My desk is piled with projects that I need to get working on!

See you in Part B this September!
