Thought I would share some videos on a weekly basis - just for fun! Or maybe bi weekly or monthly - or however it work out lol lol!
This is one I made I think more because I loved the song: Damien Rice's "Blower's Daughter". I added some of my work pieces to go along with this somewhat haunting tune.
The story behind this song is strange and helps you understand the story a little more. Its actually based on when Damien Rice worked in a telemarketing firm. He was calling homes and at one point reached a girl with a lovely voice who he kept wanting to talk to. The girl is the "blower's (meaning phone) daughter and he repeatedly calls the house just to hear her voice. At some point she moves and he can no longer reach her.
Let me explain. As you know I just moved and so a lot of my stuff is still in boxes and I haven't gotten through all my art supplies yet. But - I had an order on etsy for my Paper Pretty Girl kits which you can see here.
Now normally as you can see in the etsy listing I package the girls in glassine bags and then add embellishments - but - wouldn't you know it - I could not find my glassine bags - so I had to improvise. But what I came up with I think is even better.
I had purchased the pretty blue CD cases to ship my Workshop DVDs but I had a eureka moment when I thought that these would be great for my little kits as well.
The dress forms are in the blue case, along with some of the other embellishments in the kit which are tucked into the flaps which would normally be used to hold the CD itself (not shown here) and then because I needed additional room for the papers and other bits for the kit, I created my own "envelope" of sorts using the pink paper I had on hand. So the pink casing holds the CD case and papers and voila - an even better kit!
So you see, sometimes when you have less supplies, you are even more creative because you have to make due with what you have. Now of course however I will probably change my kit packaging to these lovely envelopes and CD cases!
