a> Black Roses Red


Fabric too boring?  Airbrush it!  There’s a lot a lot a lotttttt of white in my sakizou skirt, so I wanted to give the edges a little bit of a purple gradient.  You could achieve the same thing with ombre dyeing, but typically just if you have a mostly natural fabric, and ombre/gradient dyeing in general can be a massive pain.  Airbrushing is a lot easier to control, especially for subtle colors, plus it’s much faster.


On rare years when the conditions are right in the arid landscape of the Badlands, in the American West, wildflowers burst into a display of colour for just a few days.
The vegetation in the region has adapted to the climate, with just a small amount of moisture the desert can become coloured with sweeping fields of Scorpion Weed, Beeplant and the flowers of the Pincushion Cacti. These blooms can be very short-lived to conserve moisture.
