It’s good to be back! As you’ve noticed over the last two months, Joan has had some special helpers (MariLynn, Bambi64, cher2008 and justwritedesigns) filling in while I took a break. I’ve had some health issues, but they are working themselves out and I am feeling renewed. I can’t thank you girls enough for all your help!
~ Mojo Motivator ~
I often read in the forums here that so and so has lost their mojo or cannot find a way to jump start their creativity. First, let me assure you that it typically happens to everyone. Today we’re going to do a little mojo motivation to help when your creativity is waning.
~*~* Please read instructions carefully *~*~
First, you are going to pick a technique that we’ve done in the last year (TLC255-306), then you’re going to pick a Color Combination challenge from the last six months (CC275 - 304) and finally, you’re going to pick a Sketch Challenge from the last 100 sketches (SC215-314).
By doing this, the only decision you need to make is what image to use! Your card is pretty much already made for you.
This week, I’m asking that you first use keyword TLC307 (no spaces), but also in the body of your write up, please list the TLC, CC and SC #’s that you used. No need to link to them unless you want to, but listing them will give us an idea of where to look should we want to.
Also, as a bonus …. I would love it if each of you would put a small statement in your write up about what you typically do to motivate your mojo.
My goodness...that's a lot of options! It's much easier when you chose for us Holly!!!!!! I think I may have to sit this one out...I don't do well with so many options! Can we choose our own color scheme?
Great to see you back Holly. Anyone in their right mind would think this would make for an easy challenge but I found it restrictive. What was really great is I've never done either of the other challenges and spent ages looking at all the really neat layouts and colour combos. It was a real learning curve. I tinkered with the layout slightly so I could fit the hearts on (turned it the other way) and changed the squares to hearts (hope that was OK) Here is my "Mojo Times 3"
I've been away from the challenges for far too long! I signed in this morning looking for a challenge to get my mojo going again...It's like you were reading my mind! Now the challenge will be to choose quickly & get to stamping, and not get sucked into looking at all the previous challenges & creations!
Location: between the mountains & the seashore of NC
Here is my MOTIVATION STATION for today's TL challenge. I chose TLC273 - I've Been Framed - as my technique; CC16 - Real Red, Black, Kraft - as my color challenge; and SC06 as my sketch. This was so much fun...I really enjoyed pulling all this together.
Welcome back Holly. I pray that you will continue to feel better and better. This is a great idea for a challenge, and I'm going to see what I can come up with.
I had a "dry spell" in the last weeks of December, so have been struggling a bit to get my mojo workin' again in January. What do I usually do to get it going? I look at the SCS galleries! Sometimes I just breeze through the daily gallery for 20 pages or so. Other times I'll pick a challenge, like CAS or TLC, and look at tons of galleries for that challenge. I always get lots of ideas and am usually motivated to case something. So all the SCS posters are my Mojo Motivators. Thanks!
