What challenge did I take on? I have decided to create a line. A group of pieces that all have the same theme. In the past, I have created one thing at a time. Colors may be similar because I am in that "phase", but I have never tried anything this organized before. Why am I doing this? Because I want to focus on my designing chops. Making sure that pieces are cohesive means that I have to plan better. I need to sit down with paper and pencil and sketch (which I am horrible at!) out what I have in my head, keeping in mind that they should all work together. I am excited about this...I am looking forward to the day I can come back here proudly displaying all that I have created.
Before I go, I want to introduce you to the inspiration for my work. If you hadn't guessed, it is the lovely picture up above. A shot taken by a dear friend of a beach I love. I know what the sand feels like between my toes, the sounds of the waves lapping at the shores and that slightly salty air. I look forward to presenting you pieces that capture those memories and I hope they inspire your own warm thoughts of the sea.
