It’s Day 2 of the Halloween Idea Emporium Posting Challenge. Each day learn a little more about the mall by stopping by here or on my Instagram account. Today’s prompt is Awkward Crow. Reg, is the head crow at the Idea Emporium Bakery and companion/assistant to Marj, the baker. He is partial to green ties and floating cupcakes. Not big on words, but can be very wise when need be.
This week is all about the creation of chapter five, the Invention Room.
Prepare: the music for the chapter to prepare for inventing is anything by Bjork, but I’ve been listening to Army of Me and I Miss You and Pagan Poetry.
It’s time for a Field Trip to a really cool store my elf partner and I found in San Francisco, Paxton Gate. That trip was so synchronistic as everything I found seemed to feed the making of this book. Let’s virtual visit for a bit of Creative Inspiration.
There were lots of cool things under glass. Reminded me of Zero in Nightmare Before Christmas. I wonder if they come alive at night when the store is closed.
And flasks ready for experiments
And containers filled to the top with shells and other discoveries from the Sea
And tiny skulls of creatures passed
“and butterflies that left their wings behind to move on to bigger adventures”
And plants growing in rocks because…they can
Discover & Play:
Today I played with leaf brushes onto my photos made for Photoshop. They have a bunch to play with over here in Creative Market (and on Mondays you can get free downloads! Oh my goodness, how cool is that?)
Check back this week on my Instagram account to what sketches I created inspired by my trip there. Want to play along? Tag your sketches #ideaemporium and show what inspired you from this post/store.
Until next Blog Tuesday, Go experiment!
