im diggin your art work!
These are lovely to see, and an interesting blog topic. My creative inspiration things are mostly rocks, fossils, shells...I also have collections of handmade tiles, folk art toys, and frogs--those are mostly just for fun but I suppose it is all in the mix somehow. I also keep a visual journal in the studio--stuff ripped out of magazines, a rtist postcards, quotes, all kinds of things that move me in some way. It's very eclectic and good to look through when I'm a bit stuck.
I am always looking for resources to inspire my work. I find myself in thrift stores looking for still-life objects such as old bottles and dishes. You'll be surprise some of the items you can find.I also photograph as much as possible and keep a file on my computer of these resource photos.I like the idea of a journal for creative ideas...I should do that.Tamara - I love your creative collection!
I found your blog through the ManQuilter FB page.I am a quilter but am very inspired by china, baskets, gardens etc..I think it's important to feed our senses to keep the creative engine running!
