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.

  1. Lay down a good selection of words.
  2. Move the words around until some appealing phrases appear.
  3. Select the ones I want to work with.
  4. Arrange them on some background paper.
  5. Photograph.

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!
