Photo and Memoribilia Challenge #8 – Bonus – a creative block game too!


SET A GOAL: Remember how we talked about setting goals
for this challenge so it would be done by the end of the month? Well…
share with us what your goal is… how is it going and should you
re-evaluate it.

We all know that “A Scrap a day keeps the psychiatrist away” or other
wise known as scrap therapy… but what about those times you really
need to scrap to stay sane and you can’t think of what to do or create?

Here is a little game I came up with this week (mine is not done so I
can’t show you photos yet) You can make a spinner for this game. Or you
can make it out of some jars or like containers. You can make this
anyway you want to. It is for you and what inspires you. I am going to
explain my version and you come up with one that will help you get out
of that creative block.

Creative Ciaos Game: (you can name it what ever you like)

I have three jars full of things to inspire me.

  • Jar #1 – Has lots pieces of paper, each with a place of
    inspiration for me. For example: Stampin’ Up Catalog,
    Funny Quotes, Inspirational Quotes, Favorites,
    Scrappiest(a sketch challenge blog I like) Sketches, etc… These are
    all places I get inspired from when I look through what is in them.  I have tons of pages on for inspiration too.  If you save your articles
    from your mags and make a binder out of those articles (something we
    will be talking about later) … that would be a great place of
  • Jar #2 – Has numbers in it. Numbers 1-99. Sometimes I will draw one
    and sometimes I will draw to and add them together. That will be the
    page, project or article I draw my inspiration from when paired with the
    item in Jar #1 that I drew.

    For Example: If I drew Favorites from Jar 1 and #55 from Jar two I
    would look at the project in my Favorites and then use my
    55th project in there that I had already marked as “Favorite” months
    ago. Scrap lift it or take some embellishment ideas from it… whatever
    will inspire you and get you out of the creative block.

  • Jar #3 – Colors – I have a list of the colors I use in my room…
    mostly ROY G BIV (the colors of the rainbow, Red-Orange-Yellow-Green-Blue-Indigo-Violet)… but I also add Black and White, Browns and Pinks (because I have a ton of pink for my daughter and the reds are full… LOL). This will help if creating a card… though I usually draw my color inspiration from my photos if I am scrapping a page.
That’s it… shake up each jar and draw out a piece of paper… look up
your inspiration and get scrapping! (Don’t forget to put the papers back
into the containers.)
Decorate/alter the jars/containers to match your space. Create these
places, numbers and colors and put them into the containers… say
goodbye to creative block!

If you did this last year then make a wall art piece out of scrappy
supplies for your space. Think outside the box. If you normally do
scrapbooking then alter something if you area an altered artist then do a
page. Photobucket
