The back doorstep

Inspiration is sometimes right on your doorstep.

I was thinking about what I would do with my Saturday when I noticed all the gum leaves lodged against my back doorstep ( no judgment please!!) Now for some of you that might have been the nudge you needed to start a clean up day but not me – I was more interested in the shapes and colours of the leaves than in cleaning them up! Here’s a few pics of what resulted.

It’s always worth checking your back doorstep if you’re looking for a little inspiration.

  1. Your porch looks exactly like mine, water can and all. I did draw the water can in my sketchbook last year — one of the first drawing projects I attempted. Our leaves aren’t gum leaves — they’re maple — but I did draw a lot of them, too. You used yours in a far more creative way. 🙂 It’s true that inspiration is all around us.

  2. Oops! Didn’t mean to like my own post! Who knew you could? Well – of course I do like it or I wouldn’t have written it so the Like is redundant anyway.

    1. Slowing down is something i have a problem with – too much to do – but it is the key to creating as well so I shall have to improve!

  3. Well, my back door step gave me something quite different today but I’m not going to share that!
    The smallest thing can bring inspiration if we are aware!
