Its a love thing
When I was little I used to collect stationary. I had a massive bag that was stuffed full of pencil cases and boxes upon boxes stored under my bed that were crammed full of pens, pencils, felt tips, pritt sticks, and of course note books. Now a days under my bed is the space were I keep a few suitcases which are stuffed full of clothes and only my jewellery collection could fill boxes, but I still love stationary and pretty notebooks :)
I thought I would do a post on some of my sketchbooks that I have from uni and some that I used for lingerie and accessory design. I love anything to do with being creative and designing, so I like looking through other peoples sketchbooks and portfolios because they are so interesting. Some designers post some photos of theirs on their website, but if you go to student art shows, they usually put some of theirs out for people to look through and I could quite literally sit there all day and flick through them.
This is the sketchbook I used for my final major project in uni.
I based my project on accessories and made three pairs of underwear
and matching necklaces
The theme for my accessory project was based on 'flowers' so I ended up
drawing a lot of them
Few samples of flowers and different fabric types
My sister modelling for me :)
Little felt book one of the projects in uni
These are all images from a different sketchbook based on lingerie design
I like to collect different images from magazines that inspire
me or that capture the mood/theme of what I'm designing
Some ideas that I had when I was in work so I scribbled them
on a post it note and then wrote it up in my sketchbook later
(my writing is a mess when I'm in a hurry so I can't always understand it so the sooner
I translate it to something I can read the better)
This is the notebook I currently use for my jewellery designs.I don't tend to draw the designs much
even though really I should, I just makes little sketches and scribble ideas and notes down.
At the back I keep pictures of some of the items I have already made
Just a quick shot of my desk. I either sit here, or spread out on the floor and listen to music/watch beauty videos on youtube. I can't work in silence I need background noise :)
Edit: I'm still having problems with blogger :( I can't follow anyone elses blog and I can't see my followers on my blog page, although its still showing up on dashboard atm. Its sooooooooo frustrating, I'm running out of room on my favourites tab where I keep having to book mark blogs as I can't follow them! Is anyone else having this problem??
love and kisses
