Other Watergirl Cover

So, this is the illustrated cover, and I think it's fabulous, but when polled, the majority of people seriously adore the other one. Photoshop. Yes. I must continue to pursue it's hoary hide. But! I get to work on Water Gambit (the writing), so that's awesome! I've been dreaming about it for a few days.

Watergirl 2: or Watergambit. This sort of thing. Maybe. Liking it a little bit better.

This will have a different model, hands against the glass, and probably a better photo for the lab in the background. Also, swirly stuff around the edges. I am having a hard time thinking in layers. :)

Monday Makes: Watergirl Cover thing

I'm trying to learn photoshop before May, when the Watergirl 2 comes out (Watergambit) and I need new cohesive covers for both one and two. Yay for Watergambit coming out!!!

So, I've been photoshopping. You know you want to see it. Maybe not, but you can anyway. In fact, you already have because clearly, the image is easier to see than these letter. So I'll ask you, 'what do you think?'

Also, I'm feeling misanthropic. Maybe it's post valentine's, or just in general too cloudy and snowy blah weather, but I think it's the fact that I pushed and pushed to finish the awesome House of Slide: Hollow, 3rd revision, my last tough revision, I think, and now I'm sad. Because I want it to be over but I hate finishing things.

I really hate finishing things. Sewing, cooking, everything. I like being in process much better. I have no idea why. Good thing my schedule is keeping me on task or I'd never finish and publish anything. Maybe that's a good thing. Sometimes I wonder. Like today when I'm feeling the blues. Or grays. Blue is much nicer.

Photoshop slays me. Personal dragons.

Monday Makes: Friday Edition, Green pants and other undone things

So, this is what I've made. Pants are so EXCITING!!!! Flat felled most seams. But I didn't reinforce the knees. Dang. I meant to but only just remembered.
Pattern from Ottobre Winter 2015

Blue stretch denim that is resting before its final incarnation.

The fist of anguish

I didn't do a zipper. That's why it only took me an hour at six a.m. last Saturday morning.

Everyone prefers elastic anyway. He's worn them every day for a week.

And green always looks great on my golden eyed boy. He'd make an excellent Peter Pan. 

For my mother, because she wanted to see my happy birthday to me outfit, got the linen jacket done. Yay! Also the red riding hood felt doll ...
