Mix and match. Work with two materials that generally don't go together, like markers and bananas, or leaves and binder clips. Markers and bananas?! Done. As a kid, I had a book called 'Le zapoyoko'. The story revolved around a contested Scrabble word; in the illustrations, every object was made using the letters of that object's name. Somehow, this popped into my head as I was staring at my banana... resulting in this. Since the book was french i used french too!
