As soon as I realize that something is vaguely familiar or commonplace, I flip a page and try again the push being to come up with something beyond what I know. Beyond comfort zones, or at least beyond what I am aware exists already. I try to come up with a little bit of difference. […]
If you keep pushing beyond what comes to you easily, and tell the mind, You can do better than that, it often does. It grows more flexible, and more playful.

Posting a little summary of recent inspirations. I hope you enjoy. If you visit these blogs leave a comment for them and tell them I said hi! :-)
- Stitched self portrait tutorial by Kelli Nina Perkins. I want to try this!
- Prayer flag project – embroidery/fabric art! I like the idea of making these flags, one by one and letting them wave in the wind.
- Levitating self-portraits Natsumi Hayashi’s blog yowayowa is filled with awesome photographs with her jumping and making it look like she is flying of… very fascinating!
- Watercolour tutorial – Carla draws a fun bird, and I’m always a fan of her tutorials!
- Print your cell phone photosPrint your phone photos – wouldn’t it be boring if we just kept snapping photos and never actually sharing them off screen?
- Art Journal Video by Tammy. Inspiring, wise and colourful!
- Ideal Bookshelf illustrations a project by Jane Mount where she draws someones favorite books, like a portrait through your reading taste. I love ideas like this!
- Paper towel cards – a tutorial about dyed paper towels, sewing + patchwork
I am not inspired yet by the World’s biggest summit arranged by Leonie, but I think I might be when it starts, so check it out and perhaps you wanna join too.
What are you inspired by right now?
Hanna, Thank you for including my pastel chaos video, I’m happy that you liked it! It’s wonderful because I am always inspired by your art and words.
I’m inspired by YOU, Hanna! I enjoyed looking through all of these links…I love the fun places you send me off to. I bookmarked the stitched self portrait tutorial and the paper towel cards…fun future projects. The levitating photos were uplifting (haha), and that ideal bookshelf is such a simple but clever idea! Great stuff!
Wow.. this is great!!
Thanks for taking the time and posting all these “inspiring” links :]
Great links! I love yowayowa’s blog too. Let me see..these are the stuff I’m liking as of the moment- Stereomood, Keep Recipes
and this Japanese rock band.
I have read your blog for a while, but never commented before.
My favorite source of inspiration at the moment : these (free) pdf pattern books on henna and body art.
Can I post the link?

It’s kept my busy for weeks!
Very inspiring indeed. I loved all of these links.
I’m having a bit of fatigue over something that I’m working on. Have you ever worked on a project for hours and then realized it’s just not right. I had to put it down and walk away. Maybe I should do a watercolor bird for a change!
