l've been putting another moodboard together.....it seems to me almost therapuetic, choosing the pictures and their layout.... the adding and rearranging... and even the deciding, WHEN to stop:-))
l guess we hope our creative processess will be inspirational, both for ourselves and for others, after all .....inspiration is what makes us WANT to create.....and l wonder if we absorb many ideas subconsciously or whether there's just something like a "creative ether," 'cos seemingly out of the blue we'll create something we think has NEVER been done... and then here we are, flicking through a mag, reading a book, or maybe looking at a blogpost and we'll find something almost the same.
This is pretty much what happened to me when l fashioned this bird wreath from wire, strips of fabric and vintage flowers....although the one l came across in a magazine looked nothing like this one... the idea was exactly "mine".
Maybe this actually happens a lot and is what makes things - of their time...similar ideas constantly evolving and changing.... from day, to month, to year.....eventually creating era's...anyway just thinkin'.
Old cardboard doyley holder , books, roses and some sketch paintings l've done, you might notice the "trial" Marie Antoinette painting for the cushion l made (here).
Selina Lake's latest book Homespun Style which is full of gorgeous colourful vintage decorating, she's currently working on another one called Pretty Pastel Style.
Lots of pretty magazine pics, tissue paper rose, wristlet made from wire and vintage flowers, patchwork fabrics and vintage jewellery....with a cute puppy, the centre of attention:-))
More shuffling and rearranging after l found this old round sidetable for $20.00 at the opshop last week...it's wobbly and a bit of a mess ....could be up for a MAKEOVER:-))
Such a pretty table setting...blog.hwtm.com
Hope you've enjoyed this post as much as l have putting it together for you...Have a fantastic rest of your week..... thanks so much for popping on over.
Til next time.
