My creative muse is back. Yeah!!!! It seems like I always leave the preparations for our Portland Art Collective December Show to the last minute. It's much better to be organized and have a plan. I've taken my sketches over several years and used them to make buttons and magnets.
These little 3x4½ inches notebooks, I covered with copies of my sketches. They fit great in handbags for keeping lists or jotting down information for future reference (something I have to do to remember my thoughts).
It's fun to take what you've already created and mix it up. Let past artwork inspire new work. My art friends inspire me and help my creative muse stir. Jo Reimer uses her photos, handmade papers and other artwork to create her collages. Liesel Lund, takes photographs to inspire her watercolors. Robin Olsen stitches her fabric dots and creates many different things with them. What gets your creative muse working?
