Tuesday Tips and Techniques: Look to Fabric

When you're looking for design inspiration, look to fabric!  If online searching is your forte, there are numerous sites that contain a plethora of latest design fabrics for your inspiration.

I found this lovely fabric, "Our lady of Quadalupe",  on the Joann Fabric website.  The website is easy to use, and each fabric thumbnail can be enlarged.

Perhaps my favorite website for browsing the latest design in fabric is Mood Fabrics.  Hey, if it's good enough for Tim Gunn, it's good enough for me!  I really like this site.  In addition to thumbnail enlargement capabilities, the Mood site also allows for zooming in and looking closer at segments of fabric.  Here are a couple of the great prints I found there.

Don't pass by the fabrics you have in your own home.  I found a tablecloth, an oven mit, a jacket and an antique apron that are great design inspiration for future journal pages.

Looking to fabric should give you plenty of new ideas for your journaling designs.  New color combinations and patterns await your interpretation.  As Tim would say, "make it work!".  Have a great day and remember: "Celebrate, LOVE, and Create!"

  1. Great idea Angelia. I am going to bookmark that site for future ideas. Sometimes we have to just stop and look at what is right in front of us don't we?


Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me! It's a pleasure sharing the creative world of art journaling with you. I love hearing from you, so comments and questions are always welcome.
