This blog series is meant to challenge YOU to Look Outside the Box.
Something you may see everyday, but when it comes to your creativity, you will see them as something totally different.
At first, you may not be used to this practise….
This will be a practise you will use and never want for ideas for creating ever again.
This photo is the rafters from a new house being built in 2012 here in Morse.
When you first look at it, you see the straight lines, and the intersecting lines.
I like to print off a photo (enlarged & regular) and start tracing using my light box (or you can use a window).
Once I have traced a couple of different sizes, I start looking at patterns, etc. This one photo, I know, is going to produce numerous pieces of art.
Below are two different fabric postcards, that I made. I used baby wipes that were coloured from wiping up paint and some were stenciled with the ink left on a stencil. I even stamped some of the backgrounds that I use. I use Staz-On solvent ink for stamping on fabric.
This last photo is a fabric ATC (Artist Trading Card) which is up for grabs……You need to leave a comment below telling me how you would use the rafters photo. Please leave your real name so I am able to find you if you are the winner. I will make the drawing on January 10th and post the winner’s name here plus on my Facebook Page.
Added January 7th:

It will be mailed out today.
