I saw this quote in a magazine, and could not help myself from cutting it out....and using it for my inspiration in this art journal page. I also have a rule with myself, that I generally like to write the words out, as opposed to just cutting and pasting them. I always feel that part of the art is the actual writing itself.....BUT, here, I decided to break the rule. I mean which voice inside my head said that I was NOT supposed to cut and paste words. I made that rule myself....and in the world of art journaling....RULES JUST DO NOT APPLY.
So in terms of inspiration, I have found myself ripping up adverts in magazines, which I sometimes file and put away, because in some way, they have inspired me, whether it be because of colour or design. As I have said before, allow yourselves to be inspired and to use an idea on a scrapbook page, journal page or card. Sometimes even just a colour scheme is enough to take the guesswork away and just get started.
Enjoy the week.....and enjoy Inspiration Everywhere.
