Collecting Ideas-The Why, How, and Getting Started

   I have grown a liking to illustrations of old fairy tales. They are classic, vintage, and inspiring. How?
Every illustrator depicted the story differently making it rather enjoyable to pick and choose what you like. As a craft project they can be used as cards, gift tags, paper dolls, ect... (if you want more ideas let me know). For writers, they can give you inspiration on what to write about and a romantic element to your stories. For everyone else, I believe these illustrations are ideas to add into your collection. Creating a space for your ideas is very helpful when projects come up. A image file folder, a binder,  a notebook, or a box are just a few examples of places to store your ideas.  The most important thing is collecting ideas in your own way that are yours. 
I will be posting more images.

What do YOU think?

If you feel the need for any help on an up-coming project or have what I like to call a "artist block" I would be more than happy to help. And if you have any ideas you want to share please let me know. I am new to blogger so I don't quite know what to expect. Comments are sincerely welcomed!

The Art Of Mermaid Lagoon

From Walt Disney's timeless classic, Peter Pan, I  have found a captured heart for the movie's "mermaid lagoon". The background is full of color and just makes me smile. I love the vines on the and the sea life on the rocks. It favors much of Mary Blair's artistic style, who was one of the main animators for the movie.  Many people have painted the mermaid scenes in Peter Pan, but I am   drawn to one in particular. Brittney Lee created a charming piece that I find so inspirational and just fun. The fun in playing around and making a mess all for the sake of your own project!
