simple journalling to get back in the flow...

when i've been away from crafting for a little while and need to get back in the zone...i find it can be really helpful to keep as simple as possible...limiting my time, my supplies and the scope for getting creatively lost.  this journal page is such a page, i gave myself 10 minutes, 3 brush pens and a squirt of ink!  its not an awe~inspiring page in terms of technique or perhaps even in terms of what it attempts to say...but i got my thoughts down and got on with creating something...and although its simple...i really like it! :0)



is this a tactic you try when you've been away from your desk for a while?  i'd love to hear any ideas you have to kick start yourself again...there seems to be a huge amount of talk on this subject atm...but more on that next time!

You better believe it you're strong, but don't forget that you can allow yourself to be weak sometimes as well. Sometimes it helps to have a good cry, say some RUDE words, and generally get it out of your system! Better out than in ...

It's beautiful I love that tree :) I've been watching some of the kick start your creativity summit which has been really interesting and makes me want to try knew things. I normally start by deciding on the papers or photos and then spend quite a while moving them around the page and working out what goes!
