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.
