It's been a busy and creative month of inspiration!! I've been working on numeous projects and have a couple more posts for my Doodles Unleashed online book tour. Today it's all about my INSPIRATION *flair trays. The first chapter of the book delves into Doodle Inspirations and I share a few ways to inspire your artwork and creative projects. One of my favorite exercises is to create a *flair tray. If you've followed my blog or taken my online workshops, you've seen my previous collections of colorful palettes.
this *flair tray has bits and embellishments from my studio...
many of these pieces were thrifted on my various antiquing & thrift shop excursions in Mexico, sonoma coast, the bay area and austin
vintage buttons, doily, embroidery floss, yarn
a few of my hand painted papers & canvas
chinese brocade fabric, an embroidered table cloth
die cut felt numbers, pantone coated chips, sequins,
vintage beaded flowers & hand dyed trim
sticker tape by anna griffen
this *flair tray has special significance...things that remind me of my Grandma Bautista because there are bits in this tray from her collections..vintage buttons, the top right paper is a Hallmark shopping bag she collected a bunch of paper treasures in and 323-7 is how she inscribed all her ceramics when they were getting ready to be fired.
my SPRING FLING colors...
whispering willow, peachy blush, pinkie and sunkissed
