Finding Inspiration - Off the Wall Friday
Recently, a relatively new friend of mine was a bit surprised to find out I was an artist.
She says, " I knew you sewed quilts, but really, you're an artist?"
"I mean, you make up the designs you sew into quilts?"
Ummmmm, Yesssssss, but really, they're more art than quilts.....wellllllllll really they're both
Yeah, like any other artist
"But where do you get all those ideas from. I could never do that!"
OMG, ideas are everywhere, In fact the hard part most of the time is narrowing them down to one idea.
She didn't believe me. I could tell. But really its true. Ideas are everywhere if you just look around you.
Although most of my ideas come from my own photos - all these ideas were taken from Windows 10 Themes photos (An important note, however: these images are licensed by Microsoft for the personal non-commercial use of Windows users.)
All of these could be used as inspiration for both figurative works as well as abstract. They also also could lead you to art quilts or more traditional quilts or even into the modern arena. I mean - gosh - I could go on and on just by exploring the free themes of Windows 10 but I really do need to publish this post!!
At this point, if you're asking yourself - wow where did she find all those themes - its pretty easy.
Go to Windows 10 Free Themes
Browse the themes and pick one!! Just Click on the theme - Click on "Get"
It will download, and then you click "Launch"
The theme will appear. Now you can change your themes through "Settings"
If you're looking for the individual pictures - that's a little more tricky
I used %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Themes
in my Windows 10 search box and then clicked on themes - they all should be there
So What have been up to Creatively?
