I could look at page after page of artists' sketchbooks and journals and never get bored. In fact, I'd like to be one of those people that buys the same exact journal, like 60 of them, and fills them up every month and keeps them all neatly lined up somewhere. Don't get me wrong, I do keep a sketchbook, and I have many of them, but they're just scattered around the house and sometimes I just sketch on whatever random piece of paper I happen along at the right moment. There was a great post on Decor 8 today about journaling, I'm loving her Creativity Series of posts. If you're looking to get your inspiration on you should check them out.
sketchbooks above: Pam Garrison (my new favorite blog), Michael Bierut, Claudio Gil, Lotta Jansdotter
Here they are, my inspiration boards for my spring & summer line. I'm feeling layers, ruffles, turquoise, light pinks with gray, neutrals, feathers, and a mix of different kinds of texture. Right now Im working on some special valentines pieces, I'll post those next week.
I'm loving anything oversized right now and I especially love the fact that the big pink chain above is knitted. I've also been wanting a giant zipper necklace from Tatty Devine for some time now. But just how often does a girl get to wear a giant zipper?
I'm working on putting together some inspiration boards for spring/summer. So I thought I'd take a moment and look for some that inspired me. I usually do mine in a book but I'm thinking of doing something larger this time. I love the simplicity of some of these above. Enjoy, I hope they will inspire you too.
Happy New Year! It's been way too long since my last post, but the holidays always end up being a blur to me and before I know it they're all over and it's time to get back to work. But, If you're anything like me, getting back to work isn't alway that easy. So I was just sitting here trying to find something to distract me from reorganizing my closet, and I came across lookbook. It's a fashion facebook, if you will, where people post photos of themselves in fabulous outfits. Very inspiring if you're looking to update your look in 2009. I could get lost in here for hours!
