Yay for crafting! Tonight I experimented with epoxy and my desk lamp. I followed a series of tutorials from Violet LeBeaux on making an inspiration board, and decorating a mirror and lamp.
Here's my inspiration board! (tutorial)
And a close up of the lace/ribbon/flowers/fabric
My lamp and mirror were black, and I didn't have any purple lace, so I went gothic lolita / black and white with it. I may have overdone it on the lamp with the little flowers, but they have pearls inside and are so cute! Violet used three roses around the lamp base, but I didn't have room, so I just glued one. I'm not sure about my ribbon choice, but I'll like it more when I'm not staring at it and wondering "Should I have used a different ribbon?" over and over. Anyway! (tutorial)
Here's my mirror! I've got a black lace with a cool pattern on the top on the actual glass, and another white lace with a cool top on the black frame. I put two little flowers on each corner, which are kind of hard to see. I like the rose on the bottom. (same as other tutorial)
I really like making things. I think my favorite lolita thing to make is headpieces. I'm going to try for bows soon! Thank you Violet for showing me how to make my blogging space pretty ♥ If I come up with something cool, I'd like to do tutorials too! ...Maybe when I think up something people would want to do XD
