Dealing with Creative Blocks

If you are feeling uninspired, in a creative rut, missing the muse... please know that this is temporary. I have some thoughts about how you can get yourself back into the creative habit. So I'll preface this by saying that I have been doing art just about every day for a decade. I've got a zillion projects in process -- art journals, drawing journals, lettering journals, painted papers, index card collages, everything in various stages of completion.

It's just to say that I create collage in an intuitive way, but not in a logical brain sort of way. Maybe that's why it feels like a very good form of mental escape.

Wonder31 #24: Fruit

This is a collage with acrylics and paper on a 3x5" lined index card and [IMHO] a clever abstract interpretation of the 24th Wonder31 prompt! It's not literally FRUITY but it's fruit-like. I started with heavy body acrylics, added some paper, more acrylics... some found text... and there ya go!
