I have seen discussions about 'innate creativity'. Is creativity something you are born with or can you develop creativity. I am a firm believer that we are all born with some type of creativity, but it can also be developed and evolve over time. One girl mentioned that she could 'CASE' cards from others, but became stuck if she tried to create on her own.
I so remember feeling the same way when I began this process. When left to my own devices, I made some ugly stuff. Sadly, much of it is documented on my blog for all to see *wink*. Well I began finding cards that 'spoke' to me from others and just changing a little bit to make it my own. You do not have to reinvent the wheel to be creative. I fell in love with some of Julie's designs and would change the color or the stamps to make them my own.
She posted this video recently, so I thought I would use it as an example of how you can use someone ele's design to create something that is unique.
I changed just a few things to make a unique card. Finding inspiration from someone's design is a great way to get you out of that creative rut and bring back your mojo.
