I have fallen behind in the Journal 52 prompts. I fear I may have too many goals or too many deviations from my goals. That awareness was actually the result of this prompt and the daily mandala practice that I will be posting about later this week.

So, the right hand page of my Inspiration board includes some clippings of interesting fabric combinations of color and texture that I want to play with and some clippings of photos of interesting jewelry from catalogs as well. Joanne Sharpe is included as my representative for everything I have discovered through Cloth, Paper, Scissors – my absolute favorite magazine. I included a slightly Zentangled mandala, because of well, I tangle. Also, I collect cards and photos of cards by a variety of artists who inspire me. Included are some cards from the Unicef catalog. I always have a box or 2 of these on hand. They have so many beautiful cards – so inspiring in so many ways! Some of my current favorite children’s book illustrators are Demi and Il Sung Na. I have included small copies of my favorite pages from their books. They inspired the mandala on the right. In fact, the stars are cut from copies of pages of books by Il Sung Na.  The waves were inspired by Demi’s book about Rumi. And the lounging cat is my Bonhomie baby.inspiration board 002

And I decorated Easter eggs. Nothing says Easter like Minions!
