my creative space




i chose a space in a favourite cafe this morning to clear my head after the school/kinder drop off.

the woman sitting next to me leaned over and asked: 'what are you doing? are you designing fabric?' then she said she liked it!

so there it is. that's the other thing i want to be doing!

happy creative space day :)
pop over to kirsty's for more

oh i need a day to clear my head, too.

don't you find yourself sometimes clouded with the million things you want to do but don't have time to? wishing you had a clone? hehe

your drawing would make wonderful fabric, i would totally wear a dress made of it.

Well it's great immediate feedback! And it is lovely.

I am intrigued by what happens when I sketch in public spaces. I once did that in Angkor Watt in Cambodia and I was surrounded by kids almost instantly.

Beautiful sketches and how lovely to have compliments in a cafe. x

Tracey said...

So pretty ... sometimes sitting in a cafe is the perfect place to be by yourself and yet not alone.

What a knowledgeable woman - your sketches would make beautiful fabric.

That's so cool! Validation from a stranger can add confidence in a totally different way than support from friends.

Hi Belinda, it's been a while, hope you've been well. Have been catching up with your blog, it's looking beautiful as always. : )
I adore your mini collage pieces... And am not surprised at all that your sketchbooks have admirers in cafes. Fabric is calling you for sure!!

Galit said...

I agree that your designs will look awesome printed on textile. Funny thing is, I just thought of you in that matter and then came over here and read your post...
