Makeover over Makeover

Sometimes things don't happen the way i want them to happen. For example this bag : it's been sitting in my collection for months and it's the third one of my circus themed bag. The first one was about zebras , the second one about snakes, but this last one just didn't want to be captured. The circus theme is inspired by a picture and that picture decides type of animal print i will paint for the top section. It took me forever to find an interesting picture and a matching animal print. It's hard to paint elephant skin and i have no idea how to turn acrobatic dog fur into an attractive element...so leopard it was. The picture was printed, the animal pattern painted and the rhinestones glued into place. I've had it ready to put for sale for months, but something was missing and it was driving me crazy everytime i looked at it! I took of the prints, changed the colours and replaced the blue lace trimmings with this funky gold and black lace trim from Syria. I have finally fallen in love with this bag which means it is ready to go. It actually reminds me a bit of Cavalli's style,one of my favourite designer!

Funny how that goes, I have that too...a piece is just waiting and waiting because it just doesn't feel right. Always a great satisfaction to finally put the pieces in place :) Beautiful bag!

How funny, I actually thought it was reminiscent of Cavalli before I even saw you say that!

What a lovely bag! I, too, have shelved finished works because something just didn't feel right about them. It's a wonderful feeling when the 'light' suddenly turns on and you find the element that was missing!
