Scrappy Tip – Uninspired
Don’t be afraid to look for inspiration!
Recently I've been talking to my CT member who inspired this tip. She tried to make herself to work on a project she didn't feel inspired about. She really wanted to create something awesome, but every time she came back to her project she just felt unhappy and uninspired. In situations like that, my go tos are Pinterest, Google search, digital scrapbooking galleries, and last but not least Instagram. Many times I just look through my own photos and my older layouts. I always look for things such as paintings, photographs, illustrations, doodles, quotes and anything that comes to my mind when I think about a certain image.
Where do you look for your inspiration?
When I use this approach when I want to create a layout but I lack of ideas. I start with picking a photo I want to scrap and then research anything that may inspire me.
Next time when you feel uninspired look for inspiration outside the box. Look for things that represent the image you want to use, look for colors to go with your photo. Look for any quotes and song lyrics, themes anything that comes to mind and you will find inspiration.
Here is an example of a digital scrapbooking layout I created inspired by this beautiful painting by Carin Fausett.
Layout made with the Moments To Remember Collection
Next time you feel uninspired tried looking around the web for some ideas, do not walk away.
