When Inspiration Doesn't Strike

Sure enough everyone of us once had a moment when – while there was the time to create – mojo just didn't strike. And, let's also face it, Pinterest can be just as much a source of inspiration as a huge time waster. Now, what to do? Sketches are a great starting point!

You may think I'm biased but the Sunday Sketch posts at Studio Calico are a favorite since they have PL, layout and card sketches. I personally love, love to challenge myself not to use card sketches as that sometimes means that I think to literal in translating the sketch to my own work. So, I often start with a layout sketch in mind and go from there. Or, like for my latest SC assignment I combined a sketch from a Project Life™ card by Stephanie Brian with a layout spread by Geralyn Sy.
