A Mindful Space to Explore Your Creative Process

June 29, 2021

Written by: mindfulnesspaintings

Alcohol inks usually come in a round, plastic storage container. It’s a container that takes up space on my art making surface. I also have to remove the glass jars in a way that is cumbersome and inefficient. When I am making art, I want to be able to explore my creative process rather than being bogged down in choosing and accessing my materials. This allows me to be distraction free and mindful of my purposes for creating.  

I absolutely love the organization solution for my alcohol inks that’s shown in the photo below. I have discovered that I used to miss out on color choices or completely forgot about my inks altogether. Now, all my choices are front and center. It is pure pleasure to be able to make my next creative choice without interruption. This leaves me more centered, aware, and mindful. 

You probably won’t care for my ink organization solution. In fact, it might present you with limitations. It’s just a starting point. This blog is about making space to explore your creative process. What do you need front and center as you create? How can you best access what you need when you need it? What solution will allow you to be mindful of your creative process?
