Paper folding for my decoration

So I have been looking at my wedding planning, and since my budget is what I can find in my bank account between now and the wedding I have had to be creative with my funds.
I decided to make my decorations out of origami
but then I saw how pretty Bouquets look out of origami and decided to also make them.

here is some of the images that inspired me.

so I started by cutting old magazines into squares and testing different shapes and flowers.
this is a little container

A lily

a bunch of them

some more flowers

and then I started of the bridesmaids bouquets, they will be tones of blue

It means I have to make sure I fold some every night, but some lovely friends have decided to come and help. I am holding some origami folding evenings soon and hopefully there will be enough fun had to make them want to come back and make more.

I will put the bouquets up once they are done, I can't wait to see them finished :)

presenting Tubeless

As some of you already know I have been working on a wearable art garment made of bicycle tubes.
I seem to always set myself such funky little projects, and rarely get to take good photo's of these things.
This time I had amazing help from a great photographer and a very stunning lady.
I still don't know if it will go into the art of fashion exhibit or runway but at least I have documentation of how it can look.

the bustier was a bit big in the cups but it added another little oddity to play with

I think the slightly fetish look of the tubes lent it self to a stronger look.

But she was also able to look very artisic

 Playing with shadows was also fun

The head piece gave it something else

and its always a good idea to bring a whip into something like this ;)

Soo much fun and a big thanks to David Woolley for taking the photos
Cécile Mimieux for modelling http://www.facebook.com/BurlesqueBallerina
now all we have to do is wait and see if I get into the urban couture.

until next time
