I've scanned most of my old notebook into my laptop. When I'm scouting around for inspiration, I'll open one of these scans in Photoshop to see what I can do with it or what elements from it I might use. By accident, I inverted this sketch and it looked so different--wow! After deleting the black negative space around the drawing it looked like a stamp or a woodcut and now I really like it. I moved some of the smaller paisly elements around and rotated things to spread it out a bit. I'm still fiddling with it but it's going to be a toile or batik design.
