I have no clue why it didn’t occur to me before to paint on my jeans, however, I have had great fun painting these jeans with simple acrylic paints. I painted a pop-art image on the pocket of a girls face with rich colours. I also painted a range of flowers and coloured faces on the back of one leg of these jeans. I mean, they are pretty messy as I was simply experimenting but I love that this has allowed me to personalise my jeans and I know that I can use this method in the future to change up my wardrobe.
I have also embroidered parts of these jeans as I was practising my hand embroidery. On the back of one leg I embroidered a simple pattern of blue flowers with pale pink stalks. I like the contrast between one jean leg and the other as one is completely covered in bright coloured paint and pictures and the other has simply one embroidered flower pattern. These jeans go so well with this white top I am wearing in these pictures. The contrast between the white and colour I feel works really well in this outfit and the plain white especially highlights the jeans and makes them a more eye-catching aspect to the outfit.
