After a busy weekend, I often struggle with an idea for Monday’s post. Yesterday, I was reading an article in Cloth, Paper Scissors Magazine – Nov/Dec issue on challenging yourself to create every day by Robyn McClendon.
She shares in her article that she found creating a collage a day helped her to create consistency in her art. I resonate with her idea that doing something creatively EVERY DAY does generate MORE IDEAS!
Some days this is really difficult! Yet, not impossible! So I have decided that Mondays were the perfect day to create a simple collage in an art journal. Creating a simple collage each week feels more doable than each day for me.
I decided to use a purchased journal since they are inexpensive and I happened to have one ready to go!
I was also recently inspired by Debi’s blog on Saturday. She shows how simple it is to create art by her surroundings. Please check out her blog – if you haven’t already! 🙂
Here is my quick collage for today:
I was inspired by the Fir trees in my yard. Have you ever noticed how Fir branches reach up towards the sky?
It inspired my haiku:
It says: “Fir branches reach up, Worshiping arms towards the sky, Praising God divine.”
I hope you will join me in creating a quick collage each week! I look forward to hearing what influences YOU in your collages!
