If you’re like me, everything you see is a potential craft or art project! Every scrap of fabric, each piece of yarn – what could I do with that? What would I do with that? We save textured paper, tissue paper, buttons, felt – you name it, we’ve got it just waiting for a project!
I find myself scanning through magazines and books and thinking, “Wow! I love that (design, photo, work of art, color scheme, etc.) Today, through a very talented friend, I learned a GREAT technique to use when I see those pictures that so intrigue me.
“What do I like about this photo? What is it that is drawing me in?” Is it the swirl of colors that I like? Maybe I can recreate that color scheme in a different way. Perhaps I like the texture and want to imitate it in another material. Do I want to use the picture for decoupage or collage to cover a box, make a card or cover a journal? Explore the depths of the picture, colors, patterns, textures and ask yourself, “What is it that intrigues me about this picture?”
Dig a little deeper and you’ll find answers to questions you didn’t know to ask! It will expand your art horizons into new and exciting directions!
Oh happy day!
