Keri Smith is absolutely brilliant, and is such a creative inspiration. Her books, including Wreck this Journal and Mess are brilliant in unleashing your creativeness and imagination!
We are currently completing her book 'Mess', The Manual of Accidents and Mistakes, which challenges something you have been taught all your life, that making mistakes and a mess is a bad thing. Which it certainly is not!
In this book are a series of exercises designed to throw you into a place you have little or no control over and to get you exploring a variety of different materials.
For a perfectionist, this book is really stepping out of your comfort zone, one exercise is asking you to cover a page in honey or glue, drop something from a height and see where it lands as well as a number of other exercises that promote fun and creativity you may not think you had.
The next exercise for us is this.....
We will let you know how we get on with the book, i'm sure it will be a complete mess once we have finished all the exercises but that is what is challenging in the book, stepping out of your comfort zone! Have a look at Keri Smith's other books which include a world of unknown creativity!
