Keep the Creative Juice Flowing!

H A P P Y    E A S T E R    E V E R Y O N E !

Easter is all about beginnings, that's why we've decided to start this blog
with this list on how to "keep the creative juice flowing." 
 As they say, it's always best to begin on a positive note!

1. Explore!

           When's the last time you did something for the first time? Go out of your comfort zone. Go see new places, meet new people. Experience new things! Buuut, if you're confined to the 4 walls of your bedroom, let the internet take you places instead. Browse through blogs, and websites like Flickr, Pinterest and Tumblr.

2. Keep your eyes open and let your mind wander.

            This art is primarily visual in nature. So be observant, and pay attention to details. Let your eyes and your mind wander, and ideas will soon start popping out! And as soon as this happens, be sure to remember them, that's why you need to...

3. Keep an IDEA notebook.

          We tend to list down or sketch out these ideas on scraps of paper that we'll eventually lose. To keep our thoughts organized, it's best to jot all these down in one notebook or sketch pad.

4. Read, research.

          When we see something unusual, fascinating or complicated-looking, we usually wonder "How in the world did they do that?"  Well to find out, (no matter how geeky this may sound) you have to read and research how things are done, how the process goes.

5. Practice, practice, practice.

            Some skills can be learned but you can't expect yourself to be good at it at once. Don't be scared to make mistakes. Learn from your mistakes. Do things over and once you get the hang of it, you're bound to get it right. As the saying goes, "Practice makes perfect."

"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, 
making mistakes, and having fun." -Mary Lou Cook
