We all have creative highs and lows. I find when work keeps my too busy my creative energy lags. It is hard to get in a good creative head space when your mind is taken up with other things. One way that I try to get my mojo moving again is to start small. I may not be able to come up with an entire layout or card right away, but I like to start with a stamped image I can color and embellish and go from there, or a specific product I want to work with, or lately it has been tags.
With Christmas coming I wanted to try to make up some homemade tags for presents and I found that having that small canvas to work on is so much fun! I could either create cards from these tags, or just keep them as they are and use them for tags on presents. I have been starting with a distressed ink background and then layering stamping, die cuts, and sentiments from there. Add a pretty ribbon or string and you have something extra special for someone you love this holiday season.
Hope that inspires you to create something homemade this holiday season. We all need a break from the hustle and bustle and expressing creative energy is a win-win!
Thanks for stopping by!
