Week 5: Busy Textures

I have been in a creative slump the past few weeks. Even the simple task of writing in my journal is unbearably difficult. It's been very discouraging.

But it was easier today, so maybe I'm starting to come out of it?

This week's inspirations were as follows:

52 Weeks Challenge

Project 52 Challenge

Lila's determination to be as big as her siblings keeps her very busy each day.


  1. Sometimes I go to my journal and sit with it open in front of me. If words come, they are written. If silence comes, then I simply sit and welcome it. If my hands begin to draw, then I let the page be filled with whatever emerges. There are no rules when it comes to creativity : )

    1. It has felt like a blockage somewhere between my creative center and expression. There was so much trying to come out of me, but it was stuck. Anything I could get out was like pulling a tooth without medication, and the results were so abysmal that I can't stand to look at them.

    2. Aw, I'm sorry. Those times are tough!

  2. Don't know if this is something you're interested in at all, but I've heard good things about it: http://www.theartjournaler.com/

    If I had more time, I'd be participating in more of their events.

    1. Thanks! It's pretty intimidating, but I love the idea. :-)
