DROPPING IN

You realize, if you've been following my blog, that at times, when I need a little boost of inspiration, I will randomly grab from my box one of the Project Life cards that I store in there. From that pick, I then challenge myself to create something with it. Oftentimes the card is something I would NEVER choose had I the option of looking first.

All of the cards have two sides from which to choose. Usually one side appeals to me more than the other, so it's not really that much of a challenge for me.

Sometimes though both sides are equally appalling to me and I am torn about which one I should actually take on. Such torture.

One example of an instance like that is my choices for this particular card. The side I chose -- obviously -- is the landscape one with three green arrows running across the bottom. Huh? Not being an arrow person, I was stymied.


Another thing you've probably noticed over the years is that I love the combination of pink and green or orange and green. For this card, I opted for a combination of pink/orange and chose Calypso Coral with the green.

Once that combination was chosen, I was on a roll.


I was able to instill a lot of dimension into this card with the use of Stampin' Dimensionals, candy dots and ribbon. And I added a bit more interest with a jaunty dotty background DSP.



After some misgivings at first, I walked away from this card suitably inspired and satisfied.


What method(s) do you use to attempt to get your mojo back, to entice your muse to return from vacation, or just to restart your engines? Share!
