2016 Inspirations-The Year Ahead

So…I am sitting here this morning with my morning cup of java ( hating the fact that its non fat creamer because I am doing that “lets do a diet” to start the year off right thing)  and getting inspiration for the year of blogging ahead.  I finally have some free time ahead of me and really want to devote more time to this blog that I love and the collection that is such a hobby of joy for me to photograph and talk about.  As I was sinking my teeth into the first few screens of Pinterest and Instagram images for the morning,  I stumbled upon a number of images that just took flight in my head and had me thinking about dioramas and lots of yummy content for the blog.  I just have to share.

I don’t know about you guys but I love illustrations.  I particularly enjoy fashion illustrations which is why I have a number of limited prints by Robert Best.   If you follow the Barbie Instagram account, you might have already enjoyed this woman’s work.  I have to admit, I’m a newbie to her lovely illustrations but I am already a huge fan.  Her name is Kerrie Hess

Aren’t these scrumptious!!!  Now…to figure out how to percolate some of these illustrations and ideas into background and diorama ideas for our 1/6 ladies.  Oh yes, Rebecca is inspired now.

    • Megan Hess is coming up in the second post 😉 Her work is very detailed and I love it as well but there is something so very romantic about this watercolored illustration. LOVE! So very girly and so Barbie.

  7. I love her too, I have a collection of Coloring books, I hope she produces one as well. I would love to pencil crayon color here wonderful drawings. They are so uplifting, the colors and sheer prettiness of them make me smile.
