Notebook full of ideas!

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.

More tomorrow.

I started a note book but didn't kept it up. Yours look like you've done some serious collecting of images. JB

It's fun to set these ideas aside. If only there was enough time in the day to develop them all!
