A few months ago I came across an Altered Couture magazine, wow - I'm so inspired to try some of these alterations. One of my favs is the altered jean jacket. I love jean jackets, I think I have 4 of them now - well, technically, one of them is a blazer! Oops, I have 5.
After visiting CreativeNachos I thought this would be perfect for the theme for this week - Cosmic.
Beading this has been a very tedious process, my eyes just don't quite work the same as they used to. I recently had surgery on my right eye - and the near distance is different than my left eye, and as it turns out, I don't perceive colors correctly with my left eye, so in order to get the true color of something, I have to close my left eye! I wanted a little bit of color in the details, but not something real bright like bright reds or golds, the green beads are two different greens - that yes, were done on purpose.
I haven't quite figured out how to do the front of the jacket - down the very front part where the button holes are - it's also very frayed. It's definitely a work in progress.
I will continue to post pics of it as I go.
