This weeks Studio Saturday is on the house.
Really, there’s no place like home and it’s on the house.
I get many requests for custom buttons. I have really wonderful client that has been purchasing buttons from me for use on her fun clothing. She has great little boutique in Montpelier, VT, The Cheshire Cat. Lucy designs and paints her clothing line. She also creates them for another boutique in NC. Several weeks ago Lucy called and told me she needed a house button, along with other button styles in my Original Collection.
I had to design and produce a new button. Not a big deal. She didn’t give specifics on the type of house she would like. I had ideas rolling around in my head, normal realistic type house, Dr. Seuss house, house a child would draw, etc.
I spoke with her again and she then told me what she saw in her head. A button shaped like a house, triangle on top of a box, simple.
2 artists passing in the night, each with their own concept. My first thought when she told me that she needed a house button was a basic child’s drawing. I thought, nah that can’t be what she wants. I should have listened to the voices in my head from the beginning.
The question for this Studio Saturday is:
What experience(s) have you had with a design interpretation/misinterpretation?
Leave a comment and you could be the lucky winner of one of the new House buttons. Colors will be a suprise! I’m still interpreting those for Lucy also!
Stop by tomorrow for gossip in the Bead blogging neighborhood.
Don’t forget the new ABS $10 Tuesday. A project for you to create for $10 or under, every Tuesday. I may be offering free shipping….luring you to come back 🙂
