Artwork & Blogpost by Natalie Parish, Bag End Studio, QLD
Whilst the November Theme was Naughty, I surprisingly ended up being Nice. Originally, I wanted to make the corset into an envelope holder to store important upcoming bills because I often put money in my brassier. It’s a safe place right. However, as I was running behind schedule and Erika had finished her gorgeously Naughty Moulin Corset, I felt another colour was needed. I jumped to white and the idea of a wedding corset quickly followed. In the end, my artwork ideas came together with a bit of inspiration from a very familiar wedding adage from the 1890s:
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.
So, in keeping with my adage, I used some old lace pants, on a new MDF design board and as my blog was terribly late I wrote it on borrowed time and adding the blue brought the whole piece together.
