“Create your own visual style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” -Orson Welles
Can you believe it! He said that, and yet, Yowza, his visual style was so unique to himself and so boldly identifiable to others. We all need to try this, in our dress, our homes, our gardens, our lives. I’m working on it. In fact here are a few pictures of concrete evidence of my own Unique Visual Style:
My Calypso Vest Pattern. It is available for sale on Craftsy.com/sewing patterns/Heidi Emmett.
Calypso Vest in a softer, summery color way. I love the raw edge sewing. And because the strips that go round and round are cut on the bias, they never ravel! A bonus!I love raw edge sewing but hate all the strings.
I love how the graceful bias strips swoop up into a very cool collar. I LOVE my VISUAL STYLE! It is unique to me, and someday will be identifiable to so many others!
25 years + later, I chopped it off and added something different to make it My Unique Visual Style…
Please visit, Artisticalchemyblog.wordpress.com to see more of my Visual Style and what I will be teaching in my workshop at our 1st annual Artistic Alchemy Retreat at Zephyr Point, Lake Tahoe, September 2-5, 2014!
Hmmm…what to do on the front for “My Unique Visual Style?” What will YOU do this week in your creative time? Fifteen minutes a day, that’s all you need to get started. Hugs, Heidi
