I have parts to a lo on my work station and I keep walking away. I already went to the craft store once today and I want to go again. I guess that creative mood hasn't hit me. I keep looking at layouts here to get inspired but it's just not happening. The worst part is that my husband is away and I don't feel quilty about scrapping!! AGH!!!!
Put it away, have a margarita (or beverage of choice) and start something new. Maybe a new, fun altered project or a LO. I also try to challenge myself with something new; like doing a monochromatic LO, using a supply I bought and haven't used yet, I try to make some handmade embellishments, or decide not to use any patterned paper . Sometimes, when you give yourself a challenge, you figure out ways to make things more interesting, than stick a button here and a sticker there. Also, check out some of the challenges here! They can be very inspirational, even if you don't participate in them.
Sometimes, too, I'll go to a CVS and pick up a Vanity Fair, Cosmo, Lucky, or Vogue... I really like to look at fashion and try to relate it to scrapbooking!
I am having the same problem, as I posted earlier...Its terrible when you want and have time to scrapbook but you just can't....U was thinking about pulling out my old scrapping magazines and seeing if maybe I could scrapbook a page lift of one of theirs...try scraplifting a page and maybe that will help!
I hate that feeling!! Happens to me all the time...I finally get time to work on something and then "smack"...I hit the scrappers block brick wall!! I think the frustration of wanting to scrap and not being able to is more difficult than making that LO "work." As tough as it is to do, I agree...just put it away for a little while and come back to it later!
I'm going through the same thing at the moment. Got my LO planned and now that I'm putting it all together.. it just looks blah to me. The colors aren't right or the design isn't right. SOMETHING isn't right, but I can't figure out how to fix it.. so I've walked away for the evening and I'll give it another try tomorrow.
