Coming Back

Slowly, very slowly I feel my creativity returning. Back in August a friend suggested that three of us should put together a mini scrapbook of ideas and techniques for card making/scrap booking and other creative projects so that we could inspire each other.

I have had the book for over a month and just used to stare at my blank page with not a clue of what to put onto it. A couple of days ago I had a breakthrough and managed to get something down into the book. It is not perfect. In my eyes whatever I do will never be perfect - but it is a start. Now that I have got that out of the way I feel I can move on to other creative pursuits.

Just to mention the door. I deliberately left off the handle/doorknob. It is a doorway to the imagination and therefore a handle is not necessary!

So pleased to hear that a little ray of sunshine is warming your world!
Each time I look at the lovely paper owls you gave me, they put a smile on my face

That's great Simone, sometimes it's just making that first step. There will probably be no holding you back now!
It's a lovely page, love the colours and the ivy is beautiful.
Just keep pushing that door open!

Great idea, the doorway to the imagination.
Also, love the fall background you've got going on.

I think the door is perfect and the blue is so uplifting. It's great and I hope just the start of more creativity :D

I like the doorway to the imagination:) What a good idea to create a scrapbook with friends so that you can help and inspire each other.

It sounds as if you may have crossed some kind of threshold.

I hate the saying but 'baby steps' are sometimes needed. a little at a time and your creativity will come back. I just know one day you will do that childrens book!

How exciting... what you have pictured there looks amazing... you know Ivy is like a labyrinth, it can be confusing but it can also take you on a journey to find your centre... so a great choice for this project xx
