Monday Inspiration – all that glitters

Maybe its because Christmas is just around the corner, maybe its because I watched the new Duran Duran video or maybe its just my magpie eye BUT I am being totally inspired by metallic’s and sparkles at the moment.

It makes me want to use mirrors and crystal to reflect light, particularly candlelight and it makes me want to use metallics to bring shimmer and drama. I’d love to do a project with these elements right now… here’s hoping I can find a client who also shares my dream.

    Love it! I'm so into sparkle and shine right now. Good to know I'm not the only one! (I'm even loving glitter right now, gasp!)

    Sparkle all the way I say. Just been looking at some great glass mosaics in bronze tones with so much glorious shine and sparkle. Want want want.

    I wonder whether we could use some sparkly yarns to create a further dimension to the textural visual feel? Just think it could be REALLY exciting! Happy new sparkly year.
