Hi There!

 

Starting. Its the worst! I’m even having trouble starting this note to you about starting 😂

 

The Flow of Creativity

 

Do you struggle with getting started in your journal because you don’t have an idea? You’ve got the supplies, you’re secreted away in your workspace with no interruptions and you’ve got your favorite drink at hand ready to go. And…nothing.

 

It happens to everyone and it’s actually pretty common. The thing is, creativity doesn’t necessarily come flowing out like turning on a water tap. It may want a little coaxing to show up – the pump needs to be primed!

 

Try starting with a small project tutorial – like this pretty watercolor watermelon, it’s only 4 steps and 4 colors and you don’t even have to draw!

 

The best part of starting with a tutorial is the planning and thinking has been done so you just follow the instructions to have something started. It doesn’t have to be a journal page either, just the act of creating starts the process moving. Once you’ve started, you’ll find it easier to keep the flow going!
