And this month we look at our reader’s new suggestions for inspiration on the web. A big thanks to our readers for continuing to send links that inspire and engage, creatively.

Creative wanderings are important! – this month our online members are challenged to produce photos in a small, defined, boring space. Through exploration and wanderings, ideas develop based on surroundings and “idea switches” – elements that trigger creative ideas!
Take some time for creative play and wonder – it’ll open new worlds
