It was a wonderful weekend, I caught up on a lot of work, completed a big assignment, visited with family and friends and attended an Design/art Market.
Think about Art,
Think about design,
Innovation, talent and an ability to market.
It was all there, even the guys were impressed.
I realized that I need to market my art much more.... so I'm going to make cards, print more fabric with my illustrations on.
I bought this little gem for Lily. A recycled sweater... decorated.....!!! love it. I think Tilly and I need to work on some for her too.
These were purchased from Textile Allsorts.
She had some interesting textile art for sale too.
Whoops.... I'm going to add this piece and a label I pinched from another garment to these pants.
As I walked around the venue, there wasn't a decorated tissue box or even any thick heavy pottery in sight.
The vendors are young, they sell on Etsy and many work from home, The jewelry is fresh and innovative, the fabric is just wonderful.
The husbands went in one direction and enjoyed the 'new' vintage swimsuits and those who modeled them... they also loved the Frida Khalo lanterns, but friend Jan and I loved the finer goods presented. !!!
Its creativity at its best and in a way it a new movement.... or is it just revisited.?
