Creativity sparks - ideas to inspire: left and right

In one of my yahoo groups this week a suggestion was made on a trick you can try if you are having problems deciding what to create and want to "unblock" your mind. I hadn't heard of it before - so thought I'd share it with you!

The suggestion was made by Robert Dancik. I met him this past summer when we were in a bronze clay class together at a conference. He is a guy with lots of cool stuff! He seems to find or create all these difference materials to use - and then puts them together and tweaks this and tries this new thing here and voila! Something totally unique! And he's a great teacher too. Sign up for any of his classes if you ever get a chance!

Check out his website http://www.robertdancik.com/ - and you can learn about his product faux bone there too.

Anyhow - back to inspiration....

His idea is that you switch the hands that you work with - so if you are right handed, try making something with your left hand - and if you are left handed, try it with you right hand.




So - who is up for the challenge? Want to give it a try and see what we can do - and more importantly - see what it sparks in our heads?????
