Do you have a notebook filled with ideas for rug patterns and dye colors? I do, and I'm sure many of you do, too. My ideas are stuffed in old notebook from a long ago graphic arts seminar. I started out trying to organize with definite categories, and like most ideas, it worked for a while. Then I started shoving pictures and notes in it willy-nilly, telling myself I'd get back to it soon enough. The best laid plans!
Anyway, here is a peek into my stash of ideas. First up, the notebook!
Next, magazine clippings and greeting cards:
I love these clippings not only for their designs, but for color planning.
Next up, my sketches. Please excuse poor artistry! I have a sister who is an artist, and my father could also draw. Alas, I did not get that gene!
And lastly, more magazine clippings. These are some of my favorites.
