Inspiration Engine 14 – Art Journaling & Writing

This is a weekly post I do about blogs or posts that have inspired me in some way this week!

1. I have been thinking a lot begun thinking about hosting an Art Journaling event on wordpress. It wouldn’t begin until after the Renaissance Faire ends in June, so I’m using this time to prepare for that. There is one blogger in particular who helped me when thinking about this: The Frugal blogger. She has a number of different techniques and materials, along with corresponding videos.  It helps to see someone else’s process of creating art.

Question for you readers: Would you be interested in creating some art journal pages with me?  I have begun thinking about hosting a monthly art journaling event on Creo Somnium, partly to help me achieve my 36/36 goal, and also to get inspired by the imagination of others!

2. Last NaNoWriMo, I began working on a novel that has been in my head since college. I just finished reading The Jinni and The Gollum, (an excellent book, by the by). In the notes at the end of the book, the author wrote that was really helped by the photo archives, I believe, of the New York City Museum. Additionally, they currently have an exhibit on Guilded New York. This has been fantastic inspiration for writing my novel. Given how visual I am, seeing photos, maps and art from this period are extremely helpful. So, this one wasn’t a blog, but still inspirational.

3. This one isn’t glamerous, but I’ve been thinking about getting a custom domain and the wordpress support page has helped with this. Give my host some love. 🙂 Do you have a custom domain?  What do you think of it?

What about you?  What posts have you found this week that have inspired you in some way?

  1. I love NaNoWriMo. I haven’t been able to do it the past two years because of my work schedule but can’t wait to get back to it this year. Like you, the stories I’ve written for those (finished or not) are still swirling around in my head.

Okay, your turn.
