Inspiration

Here I was, congratulating myself that the idea of Dufleur's time experiments came out of the blue, when I found these images (I put them together) on my computer. They are, of course, a website design from the late, great Moyra's Web Jewels, which I watched for many, many months. I DID consider buying this page, and another, Art Deco page, and I LOVED the dark...but I wanted excellent contrast, so that's why I went with a dark background on my site (as here) and a lighter "page."

This obviously was where I got the germ of the idea. Visual, once again.

And I spent WAY too much time revisiting my favs (though I have a lot, now) here:


Museum of Moyra's Web Jewels


Wherever your inspiration springs from today, may it be plentiful.

Oh, yay! A museum to Moyra. :D

I have that set on my computer, too. It was my absolute favorite of her designs. I always admired her work, her talent, and wished I could produce something even relatively close. But alas and alack, there was only ever one Moyra.

I'm barely skilled in web stuff, the most I've ever done is here on the blog.

I spent hours in the museum, sadly, as the internet grows and changes, her designs (still gorgeous and cutting edge, many of them) are being lost...
