Proximity is one of the five basic principles of design. How close or how far or in wet alignment are the elements you’re working with arranged in your design? Are you thinking about proximity? By grouping similar elements together or in a close proximity, you create a relationship between those elements. Proximity also works with providing a focal point we’re giving the reader an idea of where they should focus their attention.
When I am creating I understand the proximity doesn’t mean at the elements have to be placed together, it means they should be visually connected in someway. I can use size, fabric colors, or shapes. The following picture as an example of proximity.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 1 Timothy 1:12
Good morning all it’s Friday. Who do you follow is there particular designer, fabric manufacturer, or blog that you follow. I noticed that there’s no one particular person company or thing that I follow. For me I follow what my senses tell me I should do or create in any given day. For me my leading comes from God. When I wake up in the morning I always start out with a to do list. While looking over that to do list I get inspiration. From the inspiration I’ve been and guided towards a particular pattern, fabric, area of my studio in which I pull different items to start my creation.
So for you how do you create who do you follow? Here are a few of the inspiring patterns that I will be creating in the near future
The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. John 10:3
Looking over my to do list. It’s Monday morning and I’m inspired to create clothing items for my upcoming trips to Tennessee and the UK. When traveling to teaching I like to wear clothing that I have created. Today I sew not out of necessity but because I love to create clothing. I have many styles in which I enjoy wearing. When I go to the clothing stores many times I’m frustrated because I am unable to find clothing that fits me in the fabric that I would enjoy wearing.
So today and for the rest the remainder of 2018 I have decided to make all of my clothing. I started this venture the first day of 2018. As of today I have been successful in making all of my ready to wear clothing items. Here are a few of the items I have created thus far.
Stay tuned I had so much more to show you. I am jumping in all feet first in looking at vintage patterns. Fashion is what you make it and I plan to make it everything it can be and more….
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. Psalm 55:22
When you what to make a great dress but you only have a few hours to do so in this is the pattern for you. I was able to make this dress just as the directions told me too. The sizing is good and I love the fact that you don’t even have to sew in a zipper.
The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11
