What is your favorite source of ideas? Are you aware that inspiration can come from one or two elements in a greeting card, gift paper, fabric, nature, a movie, your neighbor's demented parrot, someone's wild purse, or your sleeping cat?

The trick is becoming conscious, and really Seeing. Anything you see can morph into something else. Even things you feel can be given shapes and colors. Have you ever been disappointed in a movie after having read the book? Did you, like me, make your own visual as you read? Pretty good, huh?

Currently, I have made an angel doll pattern from a collage which I created a year ago. The collage idea came from an element on a greeting card. Try it for yourself!

By the way, I have posted some incredibly beautiful yarn assortments of drop-dead expensive boutique yarns. If you use fibers in your artwork, this is an economical way to get a variety of these.
