Since cut out and keep is a place to share all the patterns, ideas, quotes, and projects that inspire me, I thought what better place to start then with my proverbial "treasure chest". That being my Inspiration Book.
Since directions are about as simple as it gets (glue lots of stuff you like in a notebook), I thought it would be best to share a list of things you might wanna put in there! As well as some pictures from my own colorful and crazy notebook!
Things you might want in There!
- Magazine Photos
-Your own photographs
-A list of crafty websites you love
-Instructions for how to make bakers clay or
paper mache, or even a dog house!
-Many little envelopes and paper
pockets to fill with many paper patterns
-Quotes you love
-Doodles in bright pens (black and white
can bore the brain).
-Pages torn from library discards and
yard sale finds
-Pages photocopied from library books and
books borrowed from a friend
-Scan the internet and print out a patterns
No printer? No problem most libraries
even do super cheap COLOR copies!
-Magazine clippings (I love ReadyMade
but I dont wanna dig through a stack looking
for my favorite feature).
Find some quiet time....just to glue some things together, its therapeutic! Throw some glitter on top, use fabric samples, write a poem on a page, you'll be surprised how quickly the inspiration hits!
