January Inspiration

Click on Image to View Larger 

I recently completed a mini-makeover in my studio which included painting my hutch black. I immediately realized that the stark black was making me feel like I was being forced to create in a cubicle. I removed the top shelf and created an inspiration station that I can easily change as my inspiration changes.

In January, I was inspired by:

*The flickr group sixty-four colors.
Each week a new Crayola® Crayon is introduced and members are encouraged to go out into the world and photograph something with that color.

*The “Re-Think” advertising campaign by Saturn

*The 70’s

*Harajuku Lovers

* Vintage style enamel brooches by Free People

*Orange mushrooms with white polka dots

*Vintage Japan pedestal mugs from the 60's

What's inspiring you?
