I’m in love with her work.
I’m always looking for inspiration when it comes to decorate our house, and the houses I like the most, are always full of pretty plants everywhere! SO, I think it’s time to do something about that. I’ll post some pics of our house once it’s all greened up!
Mi corazón late por ti, Lucille.
wow. just one word: wow.
Here are my 10 favourite creative advices from the last issue of Frankie Magazine:
Say yes more
“Open yourself up to experiences that you would normally turn down. Eating chicken feet? YES! Going on a roller coaster ride? YES! Go a day without underwear as a dare? YES! Allow the unexpected to happen.” (By Amy NG)
“Imagine the fun that could be had if you didn’t need to follow the rules all the time, or if you were a little more impractical. Be a goof instead of a goody two-shoes. Laugh out loud at the most boring things. Eat ice cream by the end of its cone. Life is too short to take too seriously and ideas can come in the most surprising of ways.” (By Amy NG)
To make interesting work, you’ve got to be an interesting person
“Read books that aren’t about design or art or whatever it is you do. Travel far and wide. Talk to strangers and learn as much as you can about as many things as possible. More interesting work will abound.” (By Nicole Lavelle)
“Take your shoes off. Sleep in the grass. Fill your pockets with pebbles.” (By Nicole Lavelle)
Keep your eyes wide open, every day
“What’s the most beautiful or interesting thing you saw today? The packaging from your lunch? Great – Make a watercolour painting of it. Elevate it by giving it notice. If the best part of your day is your dog, then photograph her in 10 different places and get good at photographing her.” (By Brittany Powell)
“If every project must have a purpose or reason, or be part of a larger plan, you will never have an opportunity to experiment. Sometimes I find myself paralysed at the thought of beginning an extensive body of work, but I can spend an afternoon cutting and stapling to make myself outfits out of craft paper with no problem. Maybe I’ll turn that one idea into an ongoing piece of work and think more about the concept, or maybe not.” (By Brittany Powell)
Scribble when you can
“I get some of my best ideas in the most unsuspecting places. Make sure you always carry a notebook and pencil to jot down your thoughts.”
Make your space pretty
“Surround your creative space with beautiful little trinkets – the more beauty and character around you the more you will create.” (By Brook Johnston)
Just do it
“Put your ideas into practice. Even if they end up a knotted piece of yarn or just a bunch of swen-up squares, at least you’ve tried and know what to do differently next time.” (By Brooke Johnston)
“I do love a good one-a-day project! Decide on one thing that you will do every single day for 30 days. Make a tiny painting. Write a postcard to a friend. Take a photograph of your lunch. Dance naked – but don’t photograph that one, please and thank you.” (By Danielle Krysa)
