would you be interested in a little
come on ~
i know you must have some good trash to spill ~
i'll make it easy for you
i never know when i'm going to be inspired
just WHAT is going to inspire me!
like, let's say this pile of cast offs
someones discards, from my thrift store...
apparently this basket has seen better days,
if i just cut away this juicy pink jute rope...
(sooo NOT my color!)
and tear some linen/cotton "sheet" ribbons
i could make a few ruffles...
sewing machine ruffler!
a few hand stamped ribbons while i'm at it
wouldn't hurt, right?!
i start by weaving my ruffled ribbons
in and out off the jute
like this ~
all the way down to the bottom of the basket
are you feelin' it yet??
ready to talk trash??
next comes the lace
you know it needs it!!
it IS a trash basket,
but can't it be lovely too??
weaving the lace in and out,
not so concerned with it being straight and precise...
where's the romance in the perfect???
then, i VERY LIGHTLY sprayed
the wired rose petals with one of my favorite colors in a spray can...
wanna know what that is??
SPILL * YOUR * TRASH!
i can see you are NOT goin' to spill
i'll tell you anyway...
my fav color is by krylon
it's called "nickel"
and is an indoor satin metallic paint
* it has sparkles...
* i like sparkles...
after my weaving was complete,
i found i had a little extra lace and ruffly ribbon
i made a rosette
and decided on the "inspire" hand stamped ribbon,
as this trash basket is for my studio
and inspiration is what i seek...
i used a HUGE zippy bag for my liner
i just didn't want to see an ugly grocery store bag in there!
and that's it!
my studio trash basket ~
to contain all my mess
don't you feel better about dumping your trash??
i know i do!
