I sat down tonight and was looking at clothes online. You see, when I am running low on ideas, I go shopping for them. I don't spend any money, mind you, but I look at fabrics, colors, online magazines, whatever catches my eye... and I get my inspiration.
Here is the end result of a little shopping in the plus size shirt section at walmart.com...
An upcoming paper pack... it was inspired by a wild floral print on a shirt I would never wear, but it looked like fun to try to recreate on paper... I don't wear florals, I am not a girly girl.
This is just a sneak peek. I have ideas for a few more papers to go with it, and will even be putting out the PNG files so you can make your own matching brushes for the flowers... I want to try some new things :) I hope you like the colors above, but if you would like it in other colors please put a comment below.
And now for a weight loss update. I am down to... 254. Remember, a couple months ago I was up near 280. I started the low carb diet at 269 so I am making progress! Even with this weekend's binge. It is getting easier now, it is feeling more like a way of life rather than a diet. I sat through a company party today with pizza from my favorite pizza place and breadsticks... and I ate my lunch I had brought from home. YAY ME!
Thank you all for taking the time to comment on my blog. Your comments are how I wind down from a long day at the office. They are what make me feel good about the time I spend on this old computer plugging away.
Here's one of my old layouts that I just ran across that I love. Just to share... hope to inspire...
