Decoding contemporary art and hand-crafting matters.

Being Creative On Other People’s Terms

I was at a scrapbooking/mixed media indie store today, Ever After Scrapbooks (http://www.everafterscrapbooks.com/). One of the things they were advertising was the “12 Tags of 2013” challenge that Tim Holtz, a crafting industry designer, has launched (http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-january/).

For fits and giggles, I think I’ll participate in the exercise to make one artistic tag a month. There are restrictions, and it’s going to be interesting to see how I maneuver around them.

If you’re ever looking to stretch your creativity, get inspired by undertaking someone else’s project/quest/vision/class. You’ll find your creative vocabulary might have new answers if someone else is asking all the questions.
