I keep a spiral bound book to record my ideas as they are unearthed…mostly ones with snippets of fabric and papers and such (these are too bulky for my hardcover sketchbook…it would never be able to close!) . Yesterday I bought some yummy golden printed fabric snippets and glued them on the page (along with a piece of favorite paper) and sketched a girl with a fox-like mask. These little experiments help so much with my painted images. And its fun to rummage through treasures in dusty corners for inspiration!
And here’s a glimpse of fabric from a vintage dress I got in the mail…the twig-like cotton fabric is divine.
Oh, it is snowing and icy outside (again!) Very happy indeed, an excuse to stay in!
