Creativity in many forms

Its funny how if you stop doing something for just long enough its very difficult to get back into the swing of things.  That's what I have found with creativity.
For some time there I went without creating much at all.  Not long ago now I opened the sketch book after receiving a new set of drawing pens and starting doodling.  I found it difficult at first to find inspiration and often found myself getting frustrated with what I had created, tearing the page out and throwing it away.

With persistence and practice the creative juices are flowing once more.  Inspiration is easier to find and you actually develop a new perspective of the things around you.  I have discovered new creative hobbies and interests.  Things such as 'Up-cycling' and potted gardens are some of the new creative activities I have started dabbling in.  For those that don't know what 'Up-cycling' is, basically you take something that would normally be thrown away or considered junk and turn it into something useful or functional.  Sort of adding value.  For example recently I salvaged 4 wooden palettes from work, sanded them back, painted them turquoise and turned what would have normally been thrown into the trash into a bed frame.  Its a huge trend at the moment and there are plenty of websites with great ideas and inspiration.
For those interested check out this website

So, with the sketch book almost full, the house full of up-cycled projects, potted gardens and terrariums there should be plenty of new things to post up :)



Succulent Emporium
Sketchbook 2016 - Moleskine 

My fascination with these plants is ever-growing.  To say i am obsessed would be an understatement.  I entertained the idea of owning a shop specialising in all things botany with this piece.  'Succulent Emporium' - this would be the shopfront logo.

There is something mysterious and fascinating about succulents that draws me in. Their colours so vibrant and varied.  Their ability to survive in such harsh conditions and their forgivingness to neglect.
