This morning’s sky was too glorious to let slip by without a few photos.
A colorful sky like this gives me hope and inspiration. And some motivation. Today’s direction toward creativity finds me clipping images from old magazines and catalogs.
I’m collecting any images that reflect my life or interests. Whatever catches my fancy, for whatever reason. Then I’ll use an old fashioned bottle of Elmer’s and a glue stick to affix them in an old scrapbook. Or maybe on an art board. Not sure yet. I’ll let the flow take me wherever I need to go.
According to Julia Cameron in The Artist’s Way, Week 7, page 127, it’s important to set a twenty-minute time limit “…which will allow yourself to freely dismember.” So I did. But I’m going to do it again a few more times. I find myself lost in a most delicious way while in the act of clipping images!
Later I will arrange them in a way that pleases me and glue (or staple) them to whatever surface feels right.
I’ll post later when it’s finished. Until then, may your day go in the direction of creativity, wonder, and beautiful images.
