hello nature

afternoon walks around the lake remind me of why i moved to Austin.  I'm a city girl,
but there's something to be said for a spontaneous walk along a dirt path. The trees
here never cease to astonish me.  They're especially stunning right now in their
barren form.  

a perfect mini retreat. and a bonus, the turtles were out napping on the tree branches!

Beautiful new trims I've added to my collection.  I'm not sure how I'm going to use
them yet.  I think mostly for textures in my art, but who knows! Clearly I was in an
earthy mood at the trim shop this day.

inspiration boards - color + graphics

i just returned from the textile show, Printsource, in nyc. I came back so inspired! I decided to go through my folders of images collected from websites and blogs over the past year.....Here's a few of the inspiration boards I created for myself.  I love the fresh color combinations + the contrasts between bold and detailed graphics.
