inspiration monday


sometimes i go through rough patches when i'm so uninspired that i wonder if 
inspiration will ever come to see me again.  and even though i try not to worry about it......






it's hard when i find myself constantly staring at a blank page 
with no creative spark in sight.  i've heard that one answer is to keep
plugging away by putting something......anything......down on paper......






but i've also discovered that it never hurts to have a "plan B".







i've found that raiding my chocolate stash works wonders.
 inspiration loves chocolate, you know.
:))



{supplies:  walls notebook by sherwood forlee, pitt pens, 
derwent inktense pencils, waterbrush, 4B graphite pencil, 
white sharpie fine poster paint pen}

if what you do is being out of inspiration, oh please, PLEASE let me be out of inspiration!!!! ;)

have you thought about the drawing/painting class?

Jessie May said...

You have perfectly summed up my mood today, I so need an emergency button. It's really hard to imagine you ever lack inspiration, you create the most amazing illustrations from seemingly so little. Enjoy your chocolate : )

April Cole said...

Yes... it happens to us all.
Our "mojo" isn't getting on with our day!
No worries, looks like you found it after all, love the journal pages!! :]
Happy Monday ((hugs))

Lori dear you are not alone. I am always encouraged when I realize others have a stumble in their creative endeavors. By this artwork I would not have known you "thought" you were lacking inspiration. You are amazing and I covet your posts. Thank you and Crative Inspirational Hugs...

Great piece, Lori!

Claire M said...

Well... I too can relate to sometimes wonding what to 'create'. But, I need to say that I've gotten so much out of your posts and reflective words - they have brightened many of my days!! This is very clever what you did with these two pages.

Jennifer said...

Absolutely LOVE this one!! :) Doesn't look like you're lacking in the creativity department, though ;)

Beth said...

Loved this! I've been struggling with a lack of inspiration of my own lately, and it's so nice to see wonderfully creative things arise out of it :) Happy first day of spring!

Sophia said...

hahahaha love it, Lori. Thanks for your magical inspiration you share with us all. :)

Hugs

Just LOVE your work, Lori! You make my days. I just have to smile when I read your "words of wisdom" - especially about chocolate. It's hard being a chocoholic sometimes. That's ALL I think about & my tushy shows it. :(
Thanks again for sharing!
