Just A Thought

I was just thinking about how to format ideas for your projects.  Of course viewing other blogs, looking at magazines, visiting your favorite stores - all of these are great ideas.  But what about visiting your own 'stash'?  Pick a color scheme or a theme of some sort.  How about a holiday?  Gather together items that represent your choice.  Paper, buttons, ribbons and trims.  Embellishments.  Stamps.  Pictures.  Put them all together in a venue sort of way.  Step back and look at your collection.  Leave it alone and come back to it throughout the day.  Make notes.  Do some quick sketches if you can.  Go to bed.  The next day get to work.  Arrange your project in different ways.  Place different items together in different ways.  Take a chance.  Put something together that you normally wouldn't choose.  See what you can come up with.  You might be surprised!  Elle
