I have a new ideas book that I made completely inspired by Julie Prichard in her Mixed Media Variety Hour and I have been wanting to begin filling it, but it has remained on my to-do list. I have merely been slipping things into the book to be stuck in later, or sketched out later.
Then I saw Aimee was instituting “Glue-it Tuesday” and I thought to myself what better motivation do I need. No pressure but sijmply gluing things into my idea book for later inspiration and whispers.
I have gathered some reference pictures for a couple of pieces I am currently working on and this is an image I am quite drawn to and want to keep investigating so I wanted to keep my reference pictures.
Over top I made a little wand with some vellum and stuck a portrait by Chris Ofili in that I have saved for quite a while and love.
I love that I have a page I can flick to quickly when needed for quick inspiration, and also the potential of adding new images over the top using the same idea I had for sticking in the portrait by Chris Ofili.
