VIDEO: Where Do You Get Your Ideas? Tips For Artists and Crafters

Two Art journal pages with a video and chat about how to get ideas.


Where do you get your ideas? How do you keep inspired and do you have any tricks for when you aren’t feeling inspired? I’m sharing some of my go-to habits and ways that I generate ideas and keep inspired but I also want to hear yours too, so do share, either here or over on my YouTube channel.

I’m also practising my brush work again but this time with two art journal pages and you can see my whole process. These are projects number three and four in a series of four. If you missed the first one in the series then you can see it in the video I posted on Sunday where I shared some of . But don’t worry, you haven’t missed project two! That one will be posted this Sunday coming ( 25th February 2018).
