Sometimes in the theatre world, there isn’t enough of artists encouraging other artists. Maybe that’s why I find the Animator Letters Project so inspiring. Go read a few of the letters that established animators from Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, and the like have written in encouragement to aspiring animators. It’s lovely. Here’s one of them. xoxo
There’s a spot in our building, down in the basement, where tenants leave things that they don’t need any more. It’s kind of like a free, in-house thrift store. It’s great. The other day, Mr. Lovely was passing by and spotted this old brown frame with a blank canvas in it. Being the super-awesome Mister that he is, he immediately saw DIY potential and snagged it. He brought it home and we made this.
It’s a super-simple project, and while we chose a stag for our shape, you can do it with any shape you like. Here’s your list of materials.
- an old frame
- muslin fabric
- black spray paint
- black acrylic paint
- sponge brush
- spray adhesive
- freezer paper
Then just put it all together and hang it up! Depending on the type of your frame, you could also staple your fabric in — or just get a blank artist canvas from a craft store and stencil right onto that. We were just using what we found. Hooray for upcycled art! xoxo
Good Monday morning, ya’ll! I hope that by now you’ve successfully come out of your turkey coma and are happily going on about your holiday business. We had a great weekend of relaxing with good food and good buddies, and now we’re back in the game! So naturally, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss hair.
I don’t hate my hair. But I don’t love my hair. I’m guessing this is probably how most girls feel. Most of the time I’m cool with what I’ve got, but some days I wish I could trade my fine hair for a thick, extra-long mane so I could braid it every which way. I’m pretty sure that if I had some more hair, you couldn’t get met to not braid it. Don’t you just love these? xoxo
