One of my favourite inspirations for collage and art journal projects are beautiful, surprising or simply fun quotes I find in books, songs or poems. Sometimes, they just randomly jump on me from the depths of the Internet or a magazine I read. You simply can’t forget them; they get stuck in your mind and stay there until you decide to act!
One of the ideas to keep these “bite-size” inspirations is to write them down and put them in your “Jar of Goodness” for the future. You can use them anytime; when you feel creative but unsure exactly what you plan to do, pick one of the notes and follow the prompt to see where the inspiration may take you!
And you know what? You can share your project with your creative friends and invite them to a “challenge”: make projects inspired by the same or similar prompt! This is precisely how creativity multiplies and spreads across the creative universe!

“We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognise each other, to learn to see the other and honour him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.”
(“Narcissus and Goldmund” by Hermann Hesse)
“The language of friendship is not words but meanings.”
(Henry David Thoreau)
“I knew when I met you an adventure was about to happen.”
(“Winnie-the-Pooh” by A.A. Milne)
“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: – What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
“The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.”
(Elizabeth Price Foley)
