Inspiration Challenge 226 ~ William Chambers Millinery
I have a rather pumpkin-shaped head, so I’ve never managed to look good in hats … however, they still fascinate me. Easter reminds me of Easter bonnets … and I love the look of a woman in a really cool hat.
So to celebrate really cool hats, this week’s Inspiration Challenge site is William Chambers Millinery
. Taking inspiration from sources as diverse as ethnic head-dresses, British birds, and the Glasgow architecture, William seeks to modernize millinery with a fresh look at how we dress the head today. He mixed traditional materials such as felt and synamay with contemporary materials like latex, plastic, and metallic leather, creating headwear that is both challenging and desirable.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I have uploaded three of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. For the rest of you, remember to link us up to the item from William Chambers Millinery
that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC226
(no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
My sample ~ Copper Lilies
How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
