Inspiration Boards and Words of Inspiration

I have been sketching, printing and designing all kinds of inspiration boards.

This fabric started as a photo,

Then I used photoshop elements and lots of layers to produce a fabric design, which I then printed by Spoonflower.

I covered a canvas bulletin board with the fabric and had it professionally framed.

I just a had to add some Inspiration Board Jewelry and decorative pushpins.  I have been making rosettes from Vintage flower petals designed for millinery with a large upholstery pin for the center.  Finding tassels to match the boards and all kinds of wonderful notions that might add just the right embellishment.

So, now my new shop I call A WORD OF INSPIRATION is open.

My plan is to add BAGS OF INSPIRATION by theme to help make inspiration boards sparkle.

Okay, that's too neat. You photographed, tweaked and printed on fabric. "Neat-o" (where in the world did that pop out!)
Very very neat. Thanks, Jenn

About Me

My photo
I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
