Friday's Inspiration

Aug 28, 2009

How about some colorful flowers that make you smile when you see them...that's where my inspiration came from this time.. Some days ago, I was at the park and I couldn't resist taking pictures of some beautiful flowers that were all around. Flowers always inspire me in many ways, specially their beautiful and vibrant colors!
I think I'll be doing this kind of posts about a new project every Friday so I can share with you some inspiration for the weekend! What do you think?
Here's the actual picture of the flowers..love the colors!!

*Versión en Español *
Que les parece algunas flores coloridas que les hagan sonreir de solo mirarlas...asi es que nacio mi inspiracion esta vez...Hace algunos dias estuve en el parque y no pude resistir tomarle unas fotos a unas flores lindas que estaban por ahi...Las flores siempre me inspiran de diferentes maneras, especialmente sus hermosos colores. Creo que estaré haciendo entradas como esta todos los Viernes, asi comparto con ustedes un poco de inspiración para el fin de semana, que les parece?
Aqui la foto que tome ese dia, me encantan los colores!

*The flowers*
Las flores
Those beautiful colors were the beginning of my inspiración..so I started creating my little collage with different elements that inspired me as well..Images that I collect such as jewelry, some old photos that I own, magazines, etc...I even included the picture of an old painting that I made few years ago..all those elements together are part of my little inspiration board now...

*Versión en Español *
Esos hermosos colores fueron el principio de mi inspiración, así que comencé a crear un pequeño collage con diferentes elementos que me también me inspiran, imágenes que colecciono como joyería, algunas fotos antiguas, revistas, etc. Hasta incluí la foto de un cuadro que pinte hace tiempo...todos esos elementos juntos sone parte ahora de mi pequeño collage de inspiración.

*My Inspiration Board*
Collage de Inspiración
So I started sketching some ideas that came up to my mind having this inspiration board and other elements such as fabrics swatches, markers, color pencils, etc..I always have to have the tv or my favorite music around when I'm sketching..don't know why, but I just like it...

*Versión en Español *
Así que comencé dibujando algunos bocetos que me vinieron a la mente, teniendo como inspiración mi collage y otros elementos como muestras de telas, marcadores (plumones), lápices de colores, etc. Siempre tengo que tener alrededor la tv o mi música favorita, no se bien porque pero me gusta..

*Sketching*
Bocetos


And here they are..
Y aqui estan..
*My finished sketches*
Mis bocetos terminados

I used markers and some touches of color pencils

Hope to inspire you a little bit..I'd love to know what you think
Have a fabulous weekend!

Que tengan un lindo fin de semana!
Besos y abrazos

  18. absolutely GORGEOUS sketches! i've always wanted to draw like that ever since i became obsessed with project runway, but it's a lost cause...
    also: i've been wanting some classic doc marten 8-hole boots foEVER and wondered what you thought... i want to wear them with dresses and stuff, or just my regular black skinnies and thick belt. is that too overdone?

    ReplyDelete
  19. You're very welcome Becca! I'm very happy I could help you!! ♥
    xoxo

    Dear J,
    Thank you so much for your kind comment about my sketches! It means a lot to me ♥
    About the boots, I think it's a fabulous buy! I love them too! I'd wear them with little dresses, with tights, leggins and stuff, the look that I love the most is the one with a little floral-boho dress, carefree hairdo, black tights, bangels or a long necklace to give them a little bohemian look, or if you are more into the grunge style, there are so many options as well, I mean you can style those boots with many different things! And you'll look fabulous!
    I'll be posting some of the looks I told you soon :)
    I'll go to your blog right now :)
    xoxo

  27. hola! gracias por tu comentario!

    me ha encantado tu forma de explicar el proceso que has llevado para hacer los diseños! yo normalmente y teniendo todas las cosas que me inspiran en mente, acabo haciendo el diseño antes y luego lo adorno con las cosas que me han inspirado, es raro, pero es que me parece como que si pierdo el tiempo poniendo mono lo que me inspira se me irán las ideas! xDD
