So back in January I had high hopes to make some art. Truth be told - I didn't get very far. Packing, moving, unpacking, meeting, and proposals took over. So I turned to my sketch book for company. I've kept a sketch book of some kind since college. But now it has morphed into more of an inspiration book rather than traditional sketch book. After I gave birth and eventually went back to the desk job I watched my creative internal life slow and shrink. My husband sensed my frustration (bless him) and recommended I get a big book, not worry and just paste whatever inspires me into it. Clippings of home decor, flowers, gardens and art mix with my doodles and collages. One day when the days become longer and my brain has more room to think it will be a treasure trove (I hope). Here I share with you some of it's pages. You should start one today.
I'm sorry I can't properly credit all these images. I've since lost which magazine they came from. I can tell you they are most likely from Domino, British Elle Decor, Australian Vogue Home, Martha Stewart, Real Simple, House Beautiful and various mail order catalogues.
