Hi beautiful love bugs!
Today I’m going to talk about how I stay creative!
Creativity!! Sometimes it comes easily. But what about those days when it doesn’t?
It happens to the best of us, you end up staring at a blank canvas for hours wishing something good would come out of your brush. Zero ideas, zero motivation, super frustration.
So these are my top tips for getting out of the creative slump:
- Go do something different, completely and utterly different. Sail a boat, play with your dog, get a casual job!
Living is the best source of inspiration there is. Especially for people like myself, I get inspired by people, so I need to take myself somewhere there’s a lot of people to get re-energized!
- Check out your favorite artists work.
Be that via Instagram, Facebook or going to an exhibition.
The artists around you can be so inspiring. They make you so jealous with their awesomeness that you have to get off your ass and do something good!
- Paint differently or use a different art form!
Ever done expressionism? No, well give it a crack! Doing something super outside your comfort zone is amazing to get your creative juices flowing. Even if it turns out like a 5 yr olds finger painting at least you tried and got you inspired!
Okay so you’ve tried all of these tips and nothing has worked? Go make yourself a cup of tea and eat some chocolate, it may not get you inspired but it will make you feel better about life!
If anyone has any other tips for getting out of the creative funk, let me know I’d love to hear about them!!
Be free, love and create x
