Fun with Monday Muse

So..this week’s muse is variations on a THEME…

To explore this , I thought I’d just throw out a couple of themes and see where it takes us…

For example, what if I chose the theme “alphabet”? (Random, I know, but useful!)

I found this canvas from Alphabub. This one happens to be boy-themed.

PS…did you notice the grid and the blue and the yellow??

I also found this alphabet placement from Alphabet Love.

And this wildly creative felt play set called “Alphabet Soup” from Play to Learn

In the scrapbooking realm, I found this great modern alphabet paper from We R Memory Keepers called Alphabet 72:

This October Afternoon Paper called Ducks in a Row:

And this super cute Sassafras Lass paper called Phonetics:

Oh the things I could do with an alphabet theme!!!

Lets switch gears…what if the theme is a color scheme? Like green and turquoise…

That yields objects like this green and turquoise vintage daisy brooch from glamourama:

And this print from HJM Art (By the way...I’m sensing a tree theme in my life also!)

Photographer Irina Souiki has done dozens of photographs in a theme she calls “Abandoned Places.”

You can see more of her work HERE:

What if the theme was Upcycle?

PS Its In the Details has envelopes made from recycled pottery barn catalogs:

She also has these birdies form magazine pages, vintage books paper and paint chip tags:

How about this necktie cocktail dress from glamarita.

YAVA Glass has a brilliant shop full of unique upcycled products, like this night light and these Boylan Soda Bottle Glasses.

What themes do you notice in your art? Your décor? The objects you collect? The places you go?
