Refueling

Life snuck up and sapped me of all creativity for the last week or so. The best I could muster were a few pages in my Inspiration book. My friend Martha shared her wonderful design journal with me recently, and I was inspired to start one of my own. This is just the bare bones beginning of flipping through magazines to pull out what caught my interest, good mindless fun when the energy level is low.

I have such a book, my "everything book" I tear out magazine pages cards, images,colors. anything that talks to me , I refrence it when "I got nothing" to remind myself, what inspires me.

Artists need these "fallow" times. Gathering images and colours and just letting yourself be are good ways of letting the creative soil prepare to sprout new art.
