Spread # 117- Alterations December 13, 2010Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Waaaah…yeah my favorite T-shirt got old and worn…and yes it’s just a T-shirt but I loved it…it was more ‘me’ than any T-shirt I remember…and although I don’t consider myself a material girl (pun intended), I did get attached to this one in particular. I liked how I could combine it with an odd patterned long sleeve T-shirt underneath…and I absolutely got attached to the ‘waaaah’ girl printed on it, (‘Waaaah’ a Japanese word, used by anime fans meaning “small” or “mini”). So yeah, double WAAAAH!!! I just couldn’t toss ‘her’ in the trashcan just like that…so I cut the design and pasted it in my book. By doing so I reaffirmed my position regarding our capabilities to alter our moods, perceptions, and even our emotions and most definitely lots of other physical stuff, like books and furniture, etc. I am so glad I found my T-shirt a lovely home in my journal, and that it is still in my home, I really actually am!!!
In November’s ‘Fall Into color” workshop in Southern California, we altered our thoughts and stances on the meaning of inspiration. Take a look at students’ work (myself included) in this video.
