Inspired by your own work -with Genea

Hello beautiful souls,

The being inspired by your own work continues. If you remember from my last post I was inspired by my new website to create some matching packaging. This week is no different when it comes to inspiration except this time I was inspired by one of my newest necklace designs, "Om Gypsy".

I love it when my supplies compliment each other so well. I wanted to create a matching dread headband to match the gorgeous earthy colors of the necklace so I hand mixed some fabric paints to match and got to work. Here is a livestream I did on Instagram of me creating the headband.  I used the same starting and measuring techniques as one of my previous dread headband posts so for the technical stuff you can go here. 

I started my headband out with the seven jewels stencil.

I hand-mixed my fabric paints to match my necklace. I mixed some: mulberry, burnt orange, and overlapped the two colors to create a nice brown and layered the stencil 3 times to make the design long enough to fit across the headband so it went from ear to ear.

Next I used the lotus stencil  and attempted to use a metallic paint. The metallic was too light so I decided to make a darker brown as the first layer and then layered a glittery layer on top.

I wanted to add an Om symbol in the lotus so I used the Om from the Chakras 2 pocket stencil for the nice little details.

Here is the finished "Surreptitous Lotus" headband design.

I even modeled it with the matching jewelry.

How do you create complimentary pieces of art? What are your favorite materials to use?

Love, light, and highest vibrations,

xoxo Genea
