Blog – melanie testa ways to make money quickly and easily

For a long while, perhaps a year or more, I have been having a hard time artistically. I needed to get a part time job, and I did. Its a good job, I like it. As in most things I do, I jumped fully into the job, started taking more hours, I began volunteering for more work. Until I felt a huge void. I was experiencing a lack of focus on my own ways to make money quickly and easily art, and it hurt my feelings. I became disconcerted. Grumpy. I made things, but nothing was stirring the well.

So what do you do when making art has become ways to make money quickly and easily difficult? How do you reconnect with your art and begin engaging ways to make money quickly and easily with it in a manner that bolsters and supports making? Often, in the past, I have changed media, swapping out dye for watercolor and paper. This time, I have begun cleaning (I am destashing and selling on etsy, please check it out). Cleaning is magical, it moves energy and makes way for different things to ways to make money quickly and easily come forward. I love cleaning. Then, a few weeks back, my good man and I went to see the david ways to make money quickly and easily wojnarowicz: history keeps me awake at night. As we walked through the galleries at the whitney, I was amazed at what we saw and touched to ways to make money quickly and easily my very core at the depth and veracity of that ways to make money quickly and easily mans’ work. I felt the spark of the burning creative fire, that I have been longing for. I could see a pathway to my own creative endeavors ways to make money quickly and easily forming. I listened.

The unitard is a ‘clothing blank’, made of cotton jersey, procured at dharma trading. I love it. The medium size fits my body well, I am 5’2”, weighing roughly 130 pounds. The gathering at center front is pleasing and easily printed ways to make money quickly and easily over. The plunging back is a fun addition to the design. The legs are about 6” too long, which I think is a great addition to this piece-as yoga clothing goes, allowing you to pull the excess length down over your ways to make money quickly and easily ankles and heels. My one complaint is that the bodice is slightly long, although this may just mean, I am short 🙂

I decided to playful fabric print the unitard in an ways to make money quickly and easily all-over design that contains roses and forget me nots. The repeat is a six inch square (page 26, playful fabric printing), the multicolor print set (page 29) contains a total of 5 possible layers to print. The rose and forget me nots were carved from eko ways to make money quickly and easily carve, and the additional color separations were printed using plexiglas mounted, sticky back, fun foam stamps (page 63). This was printed using thickened procion MX dyes (I swapped out turquoise blue, fuchsia, and lemon yellow dyes when mixing color numbers 2 (an orange), 15 (teal) and 22 (red). I did this because I wanted bright colors (see the value bands on page 57 of playful fabric ways to make money quickly and easily printing).

Recycling a cardboard box meant there were folds in the ways to make money quickly and easily cardboard. Those folds were nearly impossible to print over. I had to fudge, add thickened dye with a brush and make due on ways to make money quickly and easily this account. It’s nothing major, the print is pretty forgiving. Also, the unitard, stretched over a full length form was a bit ungainly ways to make money quickly and easily to manage on my small print table. But, oh well, it was necessary.

Next time, I am going to try printing with thermofax, as I think the color saturation with be super pleasing. Overall, I think printing on clothing blanks is something I am ways to make money quickly and easily going to thoroughly explore! When I bought these babies, I also bought a skirt, a camisole and I recently dug out a tunic and ways to make money quickly and easily a kimono (similar to this one) from my stash.

I have been wanting to print clothing blanks for a ways to make money quickly and easily while. Luckily, dharma trading carries many styles and options and they have ways to make money quickly and easily all the kinks ironed out. Their blanks have been tested for acceptance of dye, even the threads used to sew the garments have been ways to make money quickly and easily considered and addressed. That’s where I found this cotton/spandex unitard. If you head over there, check out the tie dyed, unitard wearing yogi in the images.

I won’t be tie-dyeing this though. In printing this, I assume I will come across some challenges. Submerging cloth in dye is much different than applying thickened ways to make money quickly and easily dye to cloth. Much of my experience in printing is based on printing ways to make money quickly and easily cotton broadcloth, which is woven and smooth. Knit jersey is also smooth, but the cloth is thicker and stretchy.

My first step was to cut a form out of ways to make money quickly and easily cardboard. I made this slightly larger than the unitard, so that I could stretch the cloth some. I imagine this may help the printing to appear darker, as the cloth will be spread out in order to ways to make money quickly and easily print it, then will retract when taken off the form. My hope is that I am not stretching the cloth ways to make money quickly and easily too much.
