I tried to hit all 5 acorns in one outfit, didn't realize until I was getting ready to choose the acorns for the next participant that I only had to do 3 out of the 5. Oh Well, I am better for the challenge of trying to hit all 5. I might or might not have been crazy frustrated with how to make it all work in a cohesive look. When I completed the last piece I knew I was done and that I wouldn't change a thing about it.
|My first set of Natty Janes from Delia Creates. |
I love this pattern so much I can't wait to tell you more about it.
Hope is found in this outfirt from the green (a color that means hope in western culture) that the clutch is made out of. Along with the Chinese writing that says Hope on the shirt using discharge paste.
The Zig Zag can be found in the woven Chevron fabric that the clutch is made from. This was a little less pronounced than other acorns but I felt as though it was critical for helping tie it all together.
My base colors for this project where Poppy Orange, White, Gray & Green. I love how Orange and Green balance each other perfectly just like White and Gray help each other stayed balanced.
Before I show the rest of the pictures I better get down to the business of choosing acorns. I did this with the assistance of my sister Jo.
