the other day at work i happened to look out the window and saw this...
beautiful pinky-blue evening sky with the tree in black.... every branch adding to the lacey effect
it was like the frost queen's forest, coming to life
this is the beginnings of my first page in my design ledger
it all started with my post card from paris
and i'm adding sketching and thread and paint
trying to figure out her world
and bring it to life
it's such an interesting process and i am loving every minute of it
my usual method when designing is to start cutting and sewing right away
stitch and rip
try an idea and it works, or if it doesn't, rip it out and try again
this is kind of a new concept for me, thinking and planning and experimenting on paper
and i believe when all is said and done and she's hanging on the wall, i will be so glad of this treasure, this book
my design ledger...
a record of a journey through a beautiful world of snow and ice
