Sometimes an idea will come from just trying different fabrics next to each other, or trying a new technique. In this photo, I decided to see if I could run some Aquamesh stabilizer through my computer printer, then stitch through it. I taped the stabilizer to a regular piece of paper so it would feed properly, then printed a photo on it. I then stacked it with fabric, batting, and another stabilizer on the back and did some thread sketching and free motion quilting. (That thread matched too well and doesn't show...) Then I washed away the stabilizer. The whole thing took about 20 minutes and very little supplies, I don't know what my problem is:-) The more I learn, the more I realize that being creative is about learning to change our thinking and mental habits!
Here is another quote from the book by Nita Leland:
" Are you worried about inspiration? Sigmund Freud stated, 'When inspiration does not come to me, I go to meet it.' Don't wait for inspiration, it will come as you work."
