mixed media resources
On days that you are feeling need to create but are lost for direction, try the following:

Set your smart phone alarm - three to five minutes.

Spend that time gathering mixed media resources, buttons, incomplete art or sketches, interesting images and anything else that grabs your attention.

Once the alarm goes off, stop.

Arrange the items you have gather and take several photos of them. Review the photos, see what is working together - do certain items or images compliment each other? Is there a common thread emerging? Shapes, color, lines or concept?

Let this exercise prompt your imagination and enjoy!
