Sometimes inspiration can come from the unlikeliest of places...

If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I am a big fan of all things silly. And when it comes to silly, Carla Sonheim is the "Squeen" (Silly Queen)! Whenever I find myself in a taking-myself-too-seriously rut, I turn to one of Carla's books (Drawing Lab is my all time favorite art book!), or one of her classes.

Last week while catching up on some blog reading, I came across Carla's "coffee blobs". As you may already know, I have a tendency to "see" things (Click here for an example, and click here for another!)... And if you're familiar with Carla, then you know she fully supports and encourages "seeing" things (check out this tutorial)!

Well, when I saw Carla's "coffee blobs" I immediately started "seeing" things, so I emailed her and asked if it would be okay for me to print them out, draw&paint on them, then post my results. Being the generous Squeen that she is, she granted me permission and gave me her blessing!
I had so much fun playing with them, I was sorry to see I had reached my last...

Luckily, I've signed up for "Year of the Spark" so I have a feeling I'll be in for a LOT more fun, inspiration, and magic in 2015!
