When getting ready to start a new figure, I begin to pull out my stash and see just what I have that may inspire me. Or just walking in my garden will inspire me...here are a few of my favorite things.
Wings that I have made and also purchased from other artists.
Just some of the antique lace I have in my stash
"Through the Looking Glass" illustrated by Anne Bachelier . I must make Alice all dressed in white with that piece of silk I had hand dyed for her sash.
These are just a few things that inspire me...there are so many more, movies, books, people, buttons, fabric, especially silk and velvet.
