Something a wee bit different because I’m all about the video this week 🙂
Here’s a quick glimpse into how I create my #foundinspirations. I find it’s easiest to do them in batches – doing it this way relegates my rational brain just enough to let the intuition really come into play.
- Lay down a good selection of words.
- Move the words around until some appealing phrases appear.
- Select the ones I want to work with.
- Arrange them on some background paper.
If I’m working in my #foundinspirations journal, I select only one phrase and glue it into my journal.
Easy peasy – and each process takes only a few minutes!
Have you downloaded your free guide to creating your own Found Inspirations practice? It’s so quick and easy, anyone can do it anywhere. But it’s powerful, too – and an ideal way to begin art journaling and get those creative juices flowing!
@juliegibbons Your technique definitely resonates with me. It came right at a time when I was searching for a daily practice, too. Thanks!

It’s certainly the opposite of how I’d have done it – I’d have thought of a phrase and then tried to find the words for it! This is something else I may have to try!
I’d find that way too difficult, Karen! Using this method, I discover more magic, as well 🙂 Give it a try – see how you go! xo
