I get inspired by seeing what other people are making.

Sometimes it is good to get a fresh perspective on an idea. Not copying it but sparking another one, in our own mind! One of my dress design teachers told us to get inspiration for creating a dress outfit from something unusual. She placed a rose in a vase and a piece of driftwood behind it. We were all puzzled at first, but we all came up with such unusual ideas. Not the same, either. Each design was completely different.

Yes it is.I took photo of a white plank building and then altered a rose and tiled it onto the background.By the way this is quite big so if you would like to snip and paste, you are welcome to use it on your art items. That's if you would like to.

How wonderful that each person had their own idea resulting from looking at the same things.

Most of the designs were wearable as we had to create something from scratch.

Created a fashion sketch with the shape of a bottle as a summer dress design, with keyhole design in front and halter around the neck, The rose was a creative repeat print on a fabric.

That is a very good idea. I can imagine that a lot of different ideas came out of the exercise.

An art will be ideal to follow if it is authentic.
