Creative Juices

As you know, I haven't been doing much on the sewing/pattern design side of things recently and although what I do now is very creative, I am always making up new PDFs and using my outside-the-box super power to solve problems I have been missing the other type of creativity. Actually doing things physically, with my hands.

So, I set myself a challenge to do something arty or creative everyday, I doubt I will blog about everything but I wanted to share, and if anyone else is in a creative slump, you are welcome to join in!

Last night I sat there wondering what to do, then I remember about an exercise I did in a textile module at art school. We had to use a card with a window cut in it, and we had a page full of squares, we had to fill each square with what we could see through the card window. But it was broken down to just basic lines. After that we were told to pick two colours and fill in the squares as we liked. To be honest, I don't really remember what the point of the exercise was, I imagine it was the springboard for design.



I decided I didn't want to do squares as circle are more interesting but I stuck to the rest of the rules. It was great to be able to do some creative work that is not work related! I doubt this will ever get used for anything but I will add it to my file of 'things to do with Ebi-kun' as I can see he would enjoy it to. Plus we can do it anywhere.


Your turn, what non-work creative thing did you do today?
