Prescription for Creativity


I was a bit under the weather toward the end of last week which put a damper on my endeavors to be creative everyday.  Feeling blah and not very motivated,  I wrote myself a prescription for creativity:


Following the requirements of the prescription, I bought some wild socks


Did some doodling (I think I have a thing for circles)


And tried my hand at making paper fabric


The paper fabric was created using directions from Beryl Taylor in her wonderful book Mixed Media Explorations: Blending Paper, Fabric, and Embellishment to Create Inspired Designs.

The prescription seems to have worked.  I’m feeling much better now.  And thanks to Rice Freeman-Zachary’s book, Living the Creative Life, for the inspiration to write that prescription.

  4. Hi Aurora Fox, Cathy, and Karen,

    The prescription is working quite well! I keep it right near my computer so I see it everyday. I’m happy to send you a blank for your personal use. I have a small version (pictured in this post) and a large full-page version.

    The socks are now known as my artist socks; it was quite a change for me from basic blue.

    Thanks for writing.
