So by now if you've been looking at my blog with any regularity, you know that Isabelle - one of my besties - has started quilting and is one of the folks that pushes me to get my projects done :D
Well, she has an art/quilting blog of her own! Her blog, Creativity Found Through Hearts, is her creative outlet outside from quilting. It was inspired by A Skull A Day, in which its creator, Noah Scalin, forces himself to do an art piece featuring a skull every day. It's actually a brilliant idea; to make yourself think creatively every day keeps your brain sharp and is a great way to express yourself without feeling like every piece you do has to be a grandiouse masterpiece. Well, Isabelle has borrowed the idea and is running with it, doing a heart every day in different mediums. So far she's done marker, glitter, acrylic and oil paints and buttons.
I'm really interested to see what she comes up with next, and reading her thought processes with each piece is really cool. One of the beautiful things about art is that everyone is inspired in different ways by different things, and everyone translates those thought processes differently. That right there is the single best thing about the arts all the way down to quilting. It never ceases to amaze me how 2 people can look at the same pattern, and have such different results - that's because they both started from the same place but had different visions. How cool is that? It just never gets old.
So please go visit Isa's blog and follow her on her newfound creative path!
