You may not have dexterity or feel that you are artisitic but you still feel the urge to be creative and that’s okay because there is a wealth of possible ways to express your creativity.
Welcome to the second post of Freedom Friday. The series that will hopefully unlock your creative potential.
Confession time: I am not artistic. I am messy and clumbsy. I cannot master my hands and make them do works of art…however, I am creative and you can be too.
So here is my #1 idea for unleashing your creativity even if you are not artistic.
So let’s say you got some photos and you want to make them into works of art to hang on your wall. These photos mean a lot to you. They may be travel photos, family photos, or photos that mean something to you for various reasons. Is there anything you can do with these photos to turn them into works of art or beautful pieces of decor for your home?
As for me, I am all about books! Both my husband and I adore literature and we love to write. If you are like us, you don’t need to be great at drawing or creating things. However, you can use words and pictures that are meaningful to you to enhance your home.
I used a few lines of this Robert Frost poem which has been special to me and my children and matched it up with this frosty photo. Now it hangs proudly in our lounge.
You can also match song lyrics or quotes with photos of your choice. Take random pictures of things that interest you such as graphics or wallpaper design or a drawing your child made– anything that you love. Use a photo editing tool to change the overall colour or feel to the photo to match your interest or your room’s colour scheme. You can have the image printed on a cushion cover or blown up into a large canvas picture if the resolutions are good. The possibilities are endless!
One final note to remember is this wonderful quote from John O’Donahue:
