Yá’át’ééh !

Better late than never, right ?! I sware I thought I’d never get this tutorial up today. I’ve been having a bit of a … rubbish day. You know those days when all you want to do is snuggle up and feel sorry for yourself, eat chocolate and watch Bridget Jones ? Well, one of those days. And finding inspiration when you feel like that is like looking for a matching pair of socks… impossible. Or at least it feels like it when you’re racking your brains. We discussed stress VS creativity here and I told you I usually go out when I need to take a step back from things, just to get some fresh air. Well I did that. But when I came back and saw the time I freaked out again. Like a heart attack eat a pot of Nutella freak out. I had no idea what to do ! I had loads of ideas but nothing sounded right. I even ended up doing a tee-shirt I scrapped ! And then I had one of those last minute moments. I saw the light slowly leaving my flat for the night and caught it right there, told it to stick around and extra 30minutes (and to come in late tomorrow) and whipped this together. And you know what ? I love it ! It made my day 🙂 Moral of this whining ? NEVER GIVE UP ! And make sure you get on well with the sun, you never know when it might come in handy.

Well, I hope you don’t mind this one is as simple as yesterday’s. They’re both very useful techniques ! I mean, do you remember using tee-shirt transfers ? Do you remember how disapointed you always were ? White areas, wonky cutting out… But that doesn’t mean you can’t rethink and make something cool and trendy out the same materials these days. You can’t get too complicated with transfer paper if you want something looking pro. So why not keep it simple and play on colours and prints  ? Use a trendy print like animal fur, galaxies or navajo like this one. Just cut out a graphic shape and you’ve got yourself a tee-shirt you would be charged £20 for in a shop ! And guess what ? Mine didn’t even cost me £3 ! High five !
