S is for Stoned

23 Apr

Club Creative Studio continues to embrace Earth Day with the love of rocks.  Beautiful stones are all around, and when you pick one up to examine, look closely and appreciate nature. You have color, shape, and texture to explore.

Today’s post will hopefully be inspiration to you. Admire the stones photographed and the creative enhancements with wire that I have added to them. I love adding wire to stones to highlight them and create great focal point pendants and other items.

R is for Recycled, Reuse, Repurpose and Reinvent

23 Apr

Club Creative Studio’s post today with the focus on the letter “R” will hopefully inspire you to create.  There is much satisfaction in creating but, when you add a twist to your creative challenge by figuring out how to reinvent an item from its original form…that is really a thrill! Earth day yesterday probably gave you a jump start to realizing that you can do more with your trash. Make it a treasure.

Ask the questions today when you sit down to create how can I recycle this item? How might I reuse this item in a different way? Can this item have a new function, can it be repurposed? How did I reinvent this item from its original intended form or function?

I challenge you today to create from a different perspective. Look around to consider creating from a recycled item.  How might you reuse something that you may have normally discarded? To redefine and repurpose an item is meaningful because of the thought that went into the process of its new creation.

How can you reinvent an object to take on a new fun or functional aspect?  Answer those questions for yourself as you create with the goal in mind today to restructure an element creatively.  Need inspiration?  Take a look at the photos provided that have been created with a new twist from broken charms and unlikely resources.

Feel free to share you thoughts and ideas for how you have reinvented an item creatively.  Save the environment one element at a time, and share your creativity as well.  Good luck on your ventures today.  Enjoy these creations as well and please view more original and one-of-a-kind art from my hands and heart at Club Creative Studio.
