It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these mosaics from my flickr favorites. Flickr fav.s are definitely one of my favorite features in one of the Internets largest image sharing sites.
Ever struggle with recognizing what your own creative style is? I like to think a glimpse of that style might be revealed by looking at your flickr favorites. Flickr favorites are the images that catch your eye, photographs that steal your heart and pieces of artwork that you wish you had thought of first. By looking at your favorites you might start to recognize similarities across the collection, certain colors, textures, techniques or subject matters that are often repeated. I find it fascinating that by looking at other people’s images, you might start to learn more about yourself.
If you have flickr and haven’t utilized the “Favorites” option, I encourage you to click that little star over those pictures that catch your eye while browsing the site. If you don’t have flickr, try filling a notebook or journal with magazine images. You just might start to see a larger picture.
