Making An Inspiration Binder

Take about 10 minutes every day to be conscious of the shapes, colors, themes around you. Take pictures of those things you see when you are taking a walk outside or while browsing in a funky little shop you love. Clip articles and pictures from magazines. Draw the shapes you see in the plaster on the ceiling or cracks in the sidewalk. Don’t worry too much about how these will fit together by theme… This is more about capturing things that you are drawn to. If you ever created a vision board this process may seem similar.
