It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.
Vincent van Gogh

Inspirational - Three friends peeking through painting by iHanna

I have special notebooks to glue in inspirational images, images that I think I will use as inspiration.

But I also glue stuff that I find inspirational into my diary. And make them into collages. Or postcards. I also have a lot of inspirational clippings, images and quotes saved in various folders around here.

Sometimes I use these images in my art journal, next to one of my own mixed media paintings… also inspired by someone else. There is no rhyme or reason sometimes.

Sometimes I glue stuff into my art journal to clear my table!

Sometimes I wish I was more organized.

Sometimes I just say: never mind, I’ll just glue this in here!

How do you organize inspiration?
