I thought I knew what bamboo looked like. Boy was I off the mark! Look at this! Is it possible that someone went around the whole Chai Park Zoo in Haifa and colored green stripes on the bamboo? That's what it sure looked like to me!
I'm showing you this photo to make an important point. All you have to do is look around you for wonderful inspiration! In this case I'm suddenly really inspired to do some bamboo paintings with my kids, using the amazing striped and segmented design of the trunks, but applying lots of color to it. Or how about taking a cue from yesterday's post and painting regular sticks to look like bamboo?
It's great to be inspired by craft blogs, (and I'm so happy to have you!) but after a while you can start to get dizzy, and looking too much at other people's work can stifle your own creativity, don't you think? So take my advice, get ideas here, but don't forget to look around you— you'll find some amazing ideas for creating something connected to your world!
