I've been working on the next play date cafe colour challenge today so I can't show you I'm afraid. Except to say it's my choice of colours this week so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does with them :)
I thought I'd show you a page from my ideas journal. I've kept these for a number of years now and use them to make notes on workshops, try out new products, stamps or ideas, and keep a record of artists I admire. When Julie gave us her colours, I needed to get my journal out to play with the supplies I had in those colours as they're not ones I use very often. I also wanted to use my new character constructions stamps in the piece so I stamped them up to get a feel for the images. Playing like this before settling down to an idea really helps me get the ideas flowing. Although sometimes they just 'happen', like RSS week 8, that one I just sat down and made! How do you get your ideas flowing? Do you keep an ideas journal, or do you just get stuck in?
