White Page

9 Sep

Sometimes you sit down to write or do a little art work and that white page just stares back at you.  I always have ideas, but sometimes I have a hard time getting it on paper.  Or I start and it doesn’t come out the way I see it in my head.  Time for a little inspiration.  I love Pinterest for this, of course the down side to that is you can spend a lot of time looking at all those pictures.  Here are a few ideas to get you started.  Coloring books can give you great ideas for filling in around a verse or quote.  Use bits and pieces from magazines or news papers as a collage background.  Sheet music and maps make great backgrounds.  Recycle that watercolor or painting that didn’t turn out as planned by cutting them into shapes to fill in empty spaces.   To add distressed edges run them across an ink pad.  I have posted a few ideas with their source pages.
