A blog I've been spending alot of time on lately is The Art of Jordan. She has a nice little 'How To Series', that I'm really enjoying, such as:

I've needed that last one, sometimes it can be really hard to keep finding fresh things to blog about! When Im stuck for a post idea. I'll often look back through my old posts or through things I've bookmarked on flickr or weheartit. I tend to find the most inspiration from beautiful photography.

What do you like to do to keep creatively motivated?

  3. So excited to go explore her blog. To stay creative I step away from what ever it is that needs more creativity and go for a drive to my favourite places, it gives me a fresh perspective to look at old ideas.

  4. I'm loving the inspiration boards. I made one for my husbands office. It kinda turned out a bit girly but he still loves it haha.

    I stay inspired largely through my friends. Honestly all my friends are so talented- artists, musicians, designers etc.

    And of course through blogging and trawling the internet and my old Beatles books.

  5. I'm kind of lazy when it comes to staying creative. When I don't feel creative at all I usually go all emo and waits for it to come back xD Not the best sulution I guess xD But I found out that it does help to just relax, I can't force it. I have to want to do something creative or else it won't work and I get a headche xDlol

    I'll check out the site right now, thanks!

  10. this sounds like such a fun blog; I will definitely check it out Liss. I have just been so darn slammed this week, family in town, tired, so yes, staying creatively motivated has fallen by the wayside; must get back into creative shape, if you will. smile :)

  13. I look at a lot of photography on flickr, magazines like Frankie, blogs...
    I find that the best drawing ideas come to me when I'm doodling..maybe if I'm on the phone and subconsciously drawing something...a lot of the time I can extend from them and form complete drawings.
    I also find that when you haven't been creative for a while you have to kind of force it on..and get through that wall and then ideas just flow in and you can't stop! And you best keep it up or that wall will slowly build up again! And you absolutely mustn't doubt yourself..and when you get ideas you must put them into practice and not be lazy.gosh..sorry this is so long, but I made this realisation recently and had to write it somewhere:)

  14. @Jane ~ hehe thank you for your insight. I lost my creativity for about 2 years, after I finished uni and started working I wasn't doing anything creative. Which is why I started blogging, as a way to become creative again and your right, you must never ever lose it or let that wall get too big!!

  16. I know exactly how you feel daydream lily - with finishing uni and diving into full time work it's hard to find the time to stay creative! But I squeeze it in somehow - especially on the train going to work - i daydream and read a lot.
