Summer Flowers

I have been preoccupied lately with selling some of my old things (games and Wii console and vinyl toy collectibles and such) and collecting electronic wastes (old and broken game consoles, Kindle, ear phones, among other things) for donating to an e-waste drive. Prior to that though, I had been busy making flower brooches and hair ties. 

This post shall only include the brooches though, and the hair ties will be in another. Have yet to edit the photos XD

For this particular set of brooches, I used turquoise, pink, and yellow ochre fabric. I was going to use red instead of pink but I did not like the shade of red that was available so I opted for pink. I was also going to originally use a sunshine kind of bright yellow, but there was only the sour and pale kind so I opted for yellow ochre, and I love the way the colour combination turned out. 

Making the brooches took a number of days as I was doing a bunch of other things, and given the summer heat, I was often accompanied by this wonderful thing:

It is the same kind of iced milk coffee I make for Mico, but somehow when I made this particular glass the two tones came out perfectly XD 

So these brooches are basically what the fabrics I recently bought are for. I have delivered them to the person who bought them, and I hope everything is good and in order. 

Post on the hair ties next time; meanwhile I need to take care of some things to sell and donate. I miss drawing and painting, and I hope I get back to it soon enough. Doing the first Spiderman art piece was great, and I have yet to post about the second one, but I miss doing my own stuff and releasing all these images in my head. I think I must really draw and paint again soon. I have a "series" of pieces in mind and they have yet to find their way onto paper :D
