Day 251 - Found It!

Day 251 - Found It!

Oh hi. It's Tuesday, let's talk about making ideas fly today. Getting ideas off the ground needs creative inspiration. Sometimes inspiration comes from life around us. As I was enjoying my Labor Day yesterday, I found myself looking desperately for a creative project. As I sat I my desk, a few feathers rested against my computer. They were the same feathers used just a few days before in the Me & Martha post. A light bulb went off in the old grey matter. Maybe I could create with feathers, again? Sometimes found objects make the best creative launching pad.

This is a quick project with items that can be found in any office or art bin. For today's project grab the following:

  • thick card stock or watercolor paper
  • black stamp pad
  • a flat found object (feather, leaf ect..)
  • paper plate or paint pallet
  • paint brush or sponge
  • black paint (watercolor if possible)
  • fine black pen

Step 1: Gather supplies and cover work surface. Using the black stamp pad, stamp texture on the car stock or watercolor paper.

Step 2: Using a little black paint, load up your paint brush. Place the found object on the paper over the stamp pad texture. Now paint over and around the object. Repeat as desired. Let paint dry.

Step 3: With a fine pen, fill in the missing details. Now, stand back and admire the work.

Isn't it funny how creative inspiration can be found in stuff sitting around? I need to get back to thinking up a tomorrow's project and looking around for more inspiration. Until tomorrow kids!
