Sunflower

'Sup homeslice.
Today I'm wearing red in honor of Congenital Heart Defect Week! 
It's from February 7th-14th.
See this post or this post at one of my new favorite blogs to find out more information, plus homegirls got some killer style.

I hope you are having a nice, relaxing Friday. 
Especially if your week has been anything like mine.
I've been crazy people.
Two projects, a test, and events every night.
It's been like this for the past two weeks people.
I'm gettin' worn out. 

But I thought I'd share with you my first completed project as an interior design student. 
The assignment was to take a picture or piece of art and make a concept board for a room.
I chose Nadia Isakova's picture "Sunflower"
Sidenote, if you're feeling like sending me flowers (and who isn't), sunflowers are my favorite.
And then I chose a ton of materials from our resource room.
It's filled with fabrics, wallpapers, paint samples, flooring.
You name it, it's in there.
And the best part, everything has been donated to the university for us to use. 
Some pretty great stuff right?! 
Then you take the stuff you grabbed and you use a dry mount machine to attach it to a piece of board.
It's in the basement of a building.
I spent a good 5 or 6 hours down there by myself at night.
It was just as scary as it sounds.
My bones were jumping out of my skin.
And when I wasn't on the verge of tears from fear, I was actually crying because I slammed my finger in the bar on top. It was a sight to see. 

Anyways, once all your materials are attached, you get to cut them out. 




With an X-Acto Knife. 


Welcome to injury number two.
A few hours and a couple bandaids later, I was done cutting out everything. 
Then came the arranging and the gluing.
Ready for the final product?!


Hours and hours of work and I think it looks pretty darn good.
It better after all the time spent and injuries sustained. 

Now go out and enjoy your weekend!
