“The stars

The stars

The stars

***

They’re just like you!

They love celebrating b-days!

They go to theme parks 

And eat frozen treats.

***

The stars

Doing everyday things.

They go on coffee runs,

Hit the beach,

And spend time with their crushes.

***

The stars

Feeling larger than life

Stop and smell the flowers.

They draw with chalk

And take pet selfies.

***

The stars

The stars

The stars

Buzzing this minute!

So hot right now!

The stars.”

Well. This week I’ve been a woman possessed. I kicked off the week feeling somewhat discouraged with this piece, with the notion of putting it on hiatus, only to pick it up later that same day for a final attempt that’s resulted in me leaving my apartment maybe twice in the last 5 days. I’ve fucking missed the feeling of being so sucked into a project. I kind of improvised the water as I went along, and it while it was discouraging at first, because it looked nothing like I was envisioning (I run into this problem a lot when sewing…I just don’t have the patience to draw up complete patterns), but in the end, it ended up turning out even better than my original idea. This picture really doesn’t do it justice. So now that that and the little banners of text are finished and sewn on to the bolt of blue velvet I’m using as a background base, all that’s left to do is the embellishing and mounting. Taking a little break to finally start on a new Teen Hankgst patch, but I kind of wanna start in on sewing sequins and beads and little fabric bits on to this thing. AHHHHHHHH.
