Welcome to the community @italian3098. Just do something with a theme that interests you. I like to do some watch faces with mathematic functions or weather or science themes in them, some folks like to do cat pictures, some like to do movie themes, etc. Do you have any hobbies? Incorporate that somehow.

What I have done wheb I have some time on my hands is be Nosey. I look at peoples Profiles on my phone I can see there who they Follow and click on them. Yoy can easily get lost in a world of faces that are intresting to you. Then just have a go. It does not matter what you create at the begining you will be so pleased to wear your own face on your watch. Often the simple Faces we create in the early days are the Best. There are Tons of resoyeces on the Community. Hands Dials Numerals and Formulas. When you have done something for us to look at. Share it here and you will get loads of comments and Help.

Welcome to the Community Tina, it’s basically like the other guys already said, wherein ideas can come from all over the place, possibly even from just glimpsing something on a bus ride. Jump on the Creator and just have a play around first, get to see what you can and can’t do, and it’ll be just like russellcresser said, you’ll love it when you see your very own design appear on your Watch. Have fun…

Hello and welcome. I see you are apple watch user and already made some nice photo faces.
As guys already mentioned above, the inspiration can come from everywhere. For example I have seen some nice folk motive, then I made a face around it. It was not much popular, but I had fun at making it.

It is true that apple limits the functions, as they can not be updated more often than once in 15minutes, but still you can come with some creative ways how to display other infos than time. If you stumble on some technical hurdle, check the documentation or simply ask here in forum.

Aside from exactly what’s here on Facer, I find great inspiration from Pinterest, from both real watches and smart faces on other platforms, and if anyone is interested, here is that wall or whatever pinterest calls it - https://www.pinterest.ca/richbcan/watch-pieces/
