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,
-Katie

  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!
