You've heard of writer's block. Well, as an artist I sometimes suffer from Artist's Block. 'What is this' you ask? It's when you sit and sit and can't come up with anything. This can go on for hours, days, weeks and even months sometimes. It's extremely frustrating to the point where I've left my studio, closed the doors and haven't returned for DAYS. I get angry. It feels like my mind is shutting me out and not allowing me to create and enjoy.
When this happens, I generally turn to the design team galleries at various Scrapbooking forums. Being on the design team for Time To Scrap, I do get to see a lot of inspiring layouts and altered projects and they usually can snap me out of my funk.
A long walk along the canal here also snaps me out of my funk.
