Texture: My Beautiful Muse

I have been on this creative journey literally since my childhood, but full-time for the last three months. I have had a lot of fun with projects, art journaling, and jewelry-making, all the while sharing ideas with my wonderfully creative readers. However, I have struggled to find my niche, my muse at it were.

After reading a beautiful post by Holly Schlickbernd at So Chic Decor, I realized that I am most moved by texture.  It all seemed to be so clear.  Fall is my favorite season because I love all the textures of the fallen leaves, the gourds and pumpkins, the hearty comfort foods, the sweaters and coduroys.  Texture is what makes me want to scrapbook, paint, and make jewelry.

This, my friends, is quite liberating!  I have already been working on a painting and a journal project with my muse.  Actually, I've been so excited about this that I've been working feverishly on them at the same time, switching between projects while the other dries.  I can't wait until they are finished so that I can share them with you.

So, to pay homage to the beginning of fall and my muse, here are some pics to get your creative juices going.
