Where do YOUR ideas come from for your Art Journal covers?

A few years ago I had carved this image of John Lennon not really knowing what I was going to do with it. I was new to rubber stamp carving and needed a challenge I could really enjoy. Having been a fan of the Beatles since 1963 I decided John would be my first carving challenge Smiley That was about 5+ years ago! A few weeks ago I decided it would make a cool art journal cover!

Because I had used the iconic image of John with his NYC t-shirt on I decided to make it appear that John was still looking over the city. After laying down some decorative paper as a background, and a touch of paint to tone it down, I drew in what looks like a bit of a cityscape -- and stamped the image of John above it. Of course I had to embellish with other stamps, etc. Smiley

I also carved an image of Paul...I am sure it will eventually become a journal cover as well.  Grin

How do you decide what will be on your journal cover?
