Brainstorming is something that I really like. I think is the most important part of every project.
I collected some pictures that inspire me to start thinking about the designs I wanted to make. I cut the pictures from different magazines and I pasted them over a big piece of paper (11x17), then I started sketching some ideas using a pencil, these are very rough sketches. After that, I was fixing them with a black pigment ink pen # 0.1. I also chose some fabrics for these designs. When I start brainstorming, I need to have the elements around me so I can have a better idea of what I want to reach; elements like fabric swatches, pictures, inspiration board, yarns, trims, pencils, ink, etc.
I'm still working on these designs, this is just a very early stage..
My little inspiration board with the pictures I collected
This is the same board, but I just wanted
to play around with the colors to give it
a vintage feeling :)
