I have learned over the past few years to look for inspiration just about anywhere. I have found that if I pay attention to what it happening in the world around me, I see something that day that I have never noticed before. It is usually in every day things.
The form and shape of objects. I have found that taking photos of these items help me when I go back home to design my ideas. I always have a camera with me, even if it’s just the cell phone!
I also have found going places like shopping, museums, craft shows and concert are inspiring. I have to push myself to observe things that I have prejudged that I won’t like because in these new experiences are some of the biggest flashes of inspiration.
Also, I find that looking at all of the wonderful photos out on the net inspiring. The above photo is one of my quilts and I used ChipIT to break down the color scheme. I really enjoy Flickr, Pinterest, Instagram and such to see what others are doing, observing and experiencing.
Where do you find inspiration?
