A couple of days ago I shared my latest art journal page and shared about being inspired by materials.
This is the necklace that was inspired by this art journal page:
I studied the art journal page and just let all the colors and shapes sink in and this necklace came out.
In Inspired eCourse, I show you a step-by-step process for taking inspiration from the art journal pages that we make from prompts in the eCourse.
However, for this necklace I didn’t use that process specifically.
I had every intention of using the process, but instead the idea came to me in a state of sleepiness. I saw the bottom part with the wires loosely wrapped around the stone.
The rest of it came to me more on the spot as I pulled out materials and thought about what direction the necklace would take beyond that loosely wrapped stone.
I used colors from the page, which is part of the process I teach in Inspired eCourse.
I’m pretty crazy about the color combination in the necklace. It’s something I would probably have not tried together had I not had a similar color combination in the art journal page.
It’s interesting where inspiration can come from.
I made the art journal page (inspired by materials), then made the necklace (inspired by a sleepy idea and the art journal page) and now this necklace has inspired me to sketch out a bunch of other ideas..

Check out my Inspired eCourse!
The introduction is all about getting started art journaling and I also have some fun techniques for you.
Then each week you’ll get a creativity activity and art journal prompt, create an art journal page and then I’ll show you a map to go from art journal page to inspired jewelry piece. You’ll be designing your own jewelry, but I also have a jewelry project each week to inspire you, give you techniques or you can make it if you’re feeling stuck.
