like a dalmatian

That would be me,
 in my dalmatian polka dot tights.
You've seen these boots a million times.
I'm in my backyard.
Listening to the dog next door,
as it barks incessantly.


The neighbor's dog on the other side barks a lot too,
but whenever I get close to that side of the fence,
 I'm afraid it's gonna jump over & bite me.
My cardigan, & skirt are thrifted.
Weird angle photo I took of myself,
 so you could see my polka dot headband. 

Yes this is another weird photo angle I took of myself too.
The headband is reversible.
 The other side is a white background with black dots.
I don't know why I didn't take a photo of that.


 
I painted, drew, & collaged these art journal pgs.
Close up pg. 1

When you flip it open it says:
 An empty battlefield of Freedom.
Had we reached peace, wrapped in tissue.

I have a friend, who's nickname for her mother is Cruella. It used to be the definition of a female dog. I'm sure none of you have code names, that little ears won't understand.   ;)

  20. hahahahahha but in your case it's different, i don't know if it's because dots are extremely little, or because you have the style, but it looks good on U, in fact, i'd use i, but i'm sure i had not the same result, u rock teddi!

  24. This outfit is ADORABLE! The black and white is precious! I freakin' love those tights of yours. And you mixed patterns flawlessly! I loved that Unique collection. The dalmatians are precious. I am such a dog person. Your drawings are incredible! I wish I was that artistic.

  26. I'm a big fan of black-and-white pattern-mixing… I do it myself (a little more conservatively, of course). And I love yours, it's so fun!
