Kat doodles about life:
Yesterday’s post must have done something within the virtual space, because I have four new blog followers and seven new Twitter followers. So Thank You all very much for that and obviously Thank You to all the other supporters, had some great messages and e-mails coming through. Today it will be very quick as Sunday is a chill out day and quite honestly I have taken the opportunity to soak up some more sunshine before it completely turns into non stopping rain here in the UK. It has been really gorgeous today.
Now here is the topic- Scrapbook. I have seen seen few months ago interior designer Kelly Hoppen showing her scrapbox to someone as a source of inspiration and thought to myself: ‘I have been doing this ever since as a child.’ My obsession with collecting pretty images, magazines, fabrics, scraps of materials, pieces of nature, got my to a bit of a hoarder, but I managing it with care, although some of you who know me, may do not agree. I have probably collected boxes full of someone could call junk, but they have been carefully selected, glued into books and forgotten about. I decided recently to sit down, read all the magazines, cut out my favourites and I created 3 different books for inspiration. One is full of general research, anything I like, which does not fit anywhere. Second one is purposely for costumes, fashion, model poses, faces and expressed emotions. They are fantastic source for costume drawings and making them look really exciting. After all you want a character to stand out, no matter if it is catwalk or stage. The third and last for the moment is for spaces, interiors, exteriors, nature, sculpture and 3D based art. Again anything, which could potentially make you go “woah”, when walking into somewhere.
So today I just show you five little examples I found over the last few days and I hope it will get you start collecting too.
With love, back tomorrow, Kat xx
