(Small little rider…. i am not REFERRING indirectly or directly to anyone in this post apart from me….. just so you all know ! 😉 )
So, I was in Picasa today and looking at all my layouts in their cute little thumbnails… and I was struck….. at how different they all were…. some bright, some soft, some simple, some busy… some blended, some very textured and full of shadows, highlights.
I love my little folder. It’s a rainbow. I don’t know how much of that is as credit to my 3 awesome designers, Amy, Fernlili and Ash…. they give me such diverse toys, that I can’t help but create anew every time… and I think that is part of where the fear comes from. But then each new package is unzipped, and inspiration springs forth fresh…. and then there are the fonts, the photos, the actions, the filters… everything is different. And they are all beautiful, in their little individual little spots.
But still, like some guest that just won’t take a hint, that fear is lurking in the back of my mind. It says, don’t push too hard, too fast. The fall will come. One day you will wake up and it will all be gone, and so will you. Like dandelion fluff…
Do you feel like that too? I know we complain about our mojo and where it’s gone, but seriously… does it just go? and never come back? I know I won’t lose my SKILLS in a hurry, but it’s that inner vision that drives me… does that get bored? does it leave?
And share with us…. what’s your favourite way of having an Art recharge? Got any good places, mags, whatever that you use to reload your inner vision?
I am, and always have been, inspired by words. I am a story teller. My photos tell stories, and so do my words. A good quote, even if I don’t use it, is enough to make me leap up and dive for the computer to start pouring forth afresh.

When I’m stumped, I check out some of my favorite designers’ galleries. The work there is amazing! I like to see what they are doing with their products. Also, I check out Susan’s Digi Scraplift Blog. Sometimes I start out with a lift, and by the time I’m finished, it looks completely different. HTH!
Oh gosh Cass – I never really thought about that…. what if my inspiration just goes and never comes back……
I normally just cruise online galleries – 2peas is my fav as there are so many posters so there is always something that sparks my interest.
Well I think I am the perfect example that is just GOES………….never to be seen again!
I am still aquiring copious amounts of crud (sorry!) to hopefully inspire me, but nope, nothing, zip, naught…..NOTHING!!! This has gone past a lack of mojo!
So thanks to the other comments I am off to browse and get inspired!
Wish me luck and don’t stress your work is awesome, always different and you will never lose it!!!
