When I'm not out junking for materials, I try to keep my creative muscles in shape--the only part of me in shape at the moment, ahahahah. One way I do this is to seek inspiration everywhere I go. I look for visual treats, overheard tidbits, and other sensory experiences I can draw from. One thing that constantly pops out at me are "found faces," hearts, letters and other symbols I encounter in nature or in man-made materials and structures. It's just fun for me.
Would love to see your finds! Feel free to post them here to share!
