I need your help! When I am at home and want to be creative I go to pinterest or google and search for cute crafts or art to get ‘inspired’ and creative instead of going and making up something new!
I read an interesting post the other day, it was about how we no longer get bored because whenever we feel like we are about to get bored we instantly turn on our screen and check social media or play a game. This is not so great for a few reasons, but the one I think is the most important is the fact that we no longer have to be as creative because we can just turn on our phone instead of coming up with a new idea of something to do.
I have been finding myself doing just this, going to my phone or laptop instead of doing something creative with my time.
I have not been doing much art at home lately because I am so pre-occupied with my screens. This is bad because I am not enjoying the feeling of creating art and instead trying to blog. But when I try to write a post I am not coming up with any ideas because I have not been doing anything to stimulate the ideas for the posts. It’s like a big failure circle.
I seem to be also struggling with doing creative projects because I am not allowing myself to be bored and have to come up with an idea of what to create. I know I can do it because I create art everyday in my art class and seem to have no end to inspiring ideas of what to make.
Here is the part where I ask for your help. I need you to help me to be accountable. My goal is to do one page in my art journal each week to stimulate my creativity and share with you on my blog. 😀
You could totally do it with me too! What else could we do to be more creative without our screens? Could it be anything from making cupcakes with your little brother and decorating them to rearranging your collection of pot plants? Let me know any ideas you have down below!
