Getting Back into the Creative Groove

The past week, I've been on the road traveling up North to visit friends on Vashon and Guemes Islands. These friends inspire me to create, laugh and learn. Catherine Russel gave us each a challenge to make an eight-page mini-book using a set of prompts that she gave to us. Here are my pages. I loved this exercise and plan to do more artwork with it.

Here's a scan of the eight-pages all together that I created using the prompts.
Working with prompts is a great way to get back into the groove of creating art. For prompt ideas and ways to use them, check out the September/October issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors for Robin Olsen's article entitled, "Spontaneous Combustion: using prompts to spark design".

It is nice to have like minded friends to get together with. I'm glad you had such a creative time and felt so energized after being with them.
