Stuck for creative ideas? Collaborate!

Each time I take a photo or create a piece, I try to push the limits.I try to challenge myself to take it further to add just the right amount and not stop myself or the piece short.

It is not easy.

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Jan Hicks saw some of my pendants in their infancy.  She has begun creating beautiful jewelry to pair alongside her fantastic photography as well and also has started pushing her limits.

So, we decided to collaborate.  She sent me a color scheme… not colors in my usual repertoire… and I created some background art.  I pushed and added, pushed and added until I had this…

Then, using it I created several pendants and sent them off to Jan.

Jan then took one of them to a whole different level!

Isn’t it amazing!  She created such a statement piece with it!

Now… if only she will come visit and share some more of herself in the creative mompreneurs series… ahem… JAN!

So, if you are stuck or wanting to try something different or even trying to push yourself, try collaborating!  Sit with a crafty creative friend and share ideas.

You never know what might be created from it.

Thanks for reading!

  1. LOL, Kim. I’m getting there! I have your questions open on my desktop! Just gotta find time to sit and answer them. Maybe I’ll have Janine help me! 😀 Thanks Kim! It was wonderful collaborating with you, and I expect there will be more in the future!
