inspiration book

Hi all! I want to share my inspiration book with you.
I came up with this idea about for or five years ago.
I kept seeing photos, images of things that I thought were beautiful.
After a while, I started keeping them all in the same place.
From there, I began to glue them into a large sketchbook.
Today, I have two "inspiration books".
I also keep a folder on my computer, so that when I see something online that inspires me,
I save it and drop it into that folder later on. I have thousands of images from the internet,
and hundreds of images in my books.
Whenever I don't know what I want to create, but I feel like making something,
I flip through the book until I am inspired to make something.
Here are some images from my first inspiration book:

I hope that you start making your own!
Stay inspired,


  1. Thanks Katie. That is very inspiring. Keep up the great work. We should have some coffee soon and catch up. It's been a bit. It would be nice to see what you've been up to with your Art.

  2. Super cool! I love this idea. One of the art professors from back in the day at GSU introduced me this. Creating an inspiration journal was part of the grade. Have fun!
