My Little Fabric Blog

June 2, 2011

I’m so happy to share with you the decor8 blog of the week, My Little Fabric, penned by the very lovely Aline Caron who is a French art director based in Paris. I know that you’ll find her photography and illustrations quite charming and so I thought I’d take a moment to interview Aline so you could get to know her before peeking in on her pretty space online.

Hello Aline and welcome to decor8 today. So tell us, what are your passions as a freelance art director and blogger?
Aline: I have many passions… Perhaps too many! I I have no time to do all that I want to do. I’m interested in graphic design, of course. For work, I concentrate mainly on fashion, beauty and luxury products. I am fascinated by paper — cut, fold, paste, origami…and I love mixing mediums — collages, drawings, watercolor… I’m also fond of photography, especially food photography and food styling. I love trying to find the best light, props, fabric, it’s so exciting! I love cooking and and eating. I also make ceramic, it helps me to meditate and it clears my head. Oh, and I love contemporary dance (See? I told that you I have a lot of passions!). :)

I heard about your newest blogging adventure in addition to My Little Fabric… Can you tell us more?
Aline: Yes, of course! I’ve just created a new French blog with two others bloggers Parigote and Christelle called Culinographie which means “foodography” and we share cooking tips and tricks that we learn as we go. This is also a passion of mine…

Your photos are beautiful! Who are some if your favorite photographers?
Aline: Ohh there are a lot! It’s the magic of the internet. Everyday I discover a new talent. The last one that I added to my bookmark is Diane Sagnier and Rus Anson. In food photography, I love the work of Katie Quinn Davies. Her lighting is so amazing. I love the contrast of her photographs, sometimes it looks like a Dutch still life painting, like a Vermeer’s painting…

What kind of camera do you use?
Aline: For a long time, I used the FZ38 Panasonic Lumix bridge, perfect for novices. But 2 months ago, to improve the quality and the possibilities, I bought a Canon 5D Mark II. It’s wonderful, a revolution for me!

Outside of your favorite photographers, where else do you find inspiration?
Aline: The inspiration is all around, I find it in magazines, travels and the internet. I’m really inspired by nature, for instance flowers, woods, animals and vegetables. In my creations you’ll always find at least one of these elements. Colors really inspire me too, and the first thing that I do when I begin a project is to define a palette. It gives me direction and a graphic style.

So tell me, with so many blogs online already why do you blog?
Aline: I started blogging because I wanted to show my work. I made “doudou” which are plush toys for children and that’s why I created My Little Fabric when I first began on my blog adventure. Then, step by step, post by post, I started to introduce additional topics in which I am passionate about, for instance cooking and sharing my food photos. My blog is my playground where I illustrate, cook, tell stories with food, make videos, share my pictures, the ideal place to improve and challenge myself. The most important thing to me is that I have fun in the process!

    Quelle bonne surprise de découvrir cette interview d’Aline Caron, ma bloggueuse française préférée!
    Je suis son blog My Little Fabric depuis le début et je suis immédiatement devenue fan de Culinographie. J’envie son talent d’illustratrice et sa créativité.
    Son association avec Parigote et Christelle est une excellente idée, Culinographie met à notre disposition, en français, les trucs et astuces de 3 supers bloggueuses. Moi, je suis ravie et visiblement, je ne suis pas la seule!
    Thank you !

    Aline is such an inspiration for an inspiring blogger like me. I’m not trying and hoping to be the best blogger in my niche. I just want to share my thoughts and ideas to anyone who’s interested about the kind of thing I do.

    I also find most of my inspirations in magazines (women, house design, and gardening magazines), my many travels, and online. The Internet has tons of ideas you can emulate.

    What a beautiful post. I am alwasy interested why people blog. I got into blogging after reading millions of blogs. My mum has a shop and wanted to start one but wasn’t sure how. As I didn’t have her photo’s and don’t spend much time in the shop it was too difficult to do her blog for her. I started one to learn how to use different features and get a blog out there!
    I now love blogging and find it an easy way to be creative and think about life!
