The minute I came across Swedish artist Tove Mauritzson‘s quirky and colorful paintings, I instantly fell in love. Each piece is eclectic, outrageous, and downright WTFabulous. And I absolutely love that her work blends in so perfectly to the decor of her home in Sweden, making them almost 3 dimensional and so alive! Honestly inspired!
Last summer, we were obsessed with shibori indigo tie dying. No, really . . . we just about dyed anything white in sight. So when Free People asked us to include a DIY in their guest blogger series, we knew a new tie dye project was absolutely in order. And as the weather is beginning to warm up, what better time than now to start experimenting with reverse tie dye using bleach! Black tees and tops: watch out!
- a 100% cotton black shirt (we used this Free People tee)
- a few cups of bleach
- a bucket
- a pair of gloves
- a few rubber bands
- 2 flat shaped objects used for binding
