MoJo.. No flow!

Well it may be a new year but it seems I have the same old problem!
 My mojo, or lack of it!
I'm here at my desk, ready and willing to craft but the mind is a total blank. Just typical.
So instead of you having to stare at my little moan here is a little something i made last year but didn't get around to blogging.
It was a birthday card for my friend using one of the ever popular paperbag studio images.
I used a small section from a crocheted doily and the metal flower is from a dismantled necklace.
Hopefully new inspiration will strike soon, I need to make something or i'll go crazy.. {hay no smart arse comments that i already am thank you!} until then!

What works for me when my brain goes blank like that is to just color on paper - spread some ink, paint, markers, watercolors, pastels - any kind of pigment - on the page in whatever way comes to me. Just play with it - dots, resists, however you feel like splattering the color around. Almost always I go somewhere with it then, especially if I think "I'm just playing around, nothing important."

Even if I don't get where I think I _should_ be going, I always get somewhere - and the piece can be chopped up for backgrounds or something if I hate it.

I struggled as well and ended up with that black monstrosity, LOL. I like it less and less the more I look at it, especially the Priorities LOL, but am now doing something a bit more colourful, back to normal tomorrow.
