Joni Parker here today wishing you a Happy New Year!!
Ever seem to just lose your mojo? You know, your creative juices just don't seem to be flowing? I know that happens to me sometimes, so I have a few fun ways to give myself a little jump start and I thought I'd share with you today.
- I turn to challenges or sketches to see if I can get an idea going.
- I have a "list" (partially shown below) and I pick a few random numbers from each column (without looking) -- I then "try" to go along those paths, but I also don't force myself to use one of the options if it just doesn't fit. I like this idea because sometimes it reminds me of things that I might forget to use otherwise (like cork or doing a monochromatic layout)
- I also let my 11 year old son "pick" stuff for me. He loves that, and loves to walk around my scrap room and try to find items or "drawers/bins" to challenge his mommy. Sometimes he'll even pick a theme for me from column 3 on that list I mentioned above. He enjoys seeing how I used all the items he picked out for me.
