Do you ever run into a creative road block?

Break creative block and help people relate to your artwork.

Don’t feel alone all artists do. We just need some inspiration. One thing you can do to get past that creative block is to get inspiration from association.

What I mean by that is  go to some place, look through a magazine, go online (I would recommend www.pixdaus.com) or eat out. Something away from your torch, canvas or art pad. Let your mind wander a little and look at the colors around you and you’ll see color combination that evoke feelings and unlock your creativity.

Here are some examples to get you going.

This soft pink rose could is a very elegant soft color combo. the soft pink and white pedals along with the light green is very calming.

The bright orange, deep blue and black spots is the poison arrow frog's way of saying "Look at me all you want, but I wouldn't recommend eating me." A color combination like this grabs attention and doesn't want to let go. Could you imagain this color combo for a bracelet?

Looking at this light house can't you just here sounds of the ocean, smell the salt in the air and feel the wind?  I think the white, brick red with a little black would make a nice color combo.

There are 3 examples of what I mean. Each photo not only has a good example of how the colors work together, but they also can have emotional attachments to them. It works will to get past creative block, but also for marketing your work.

So if you do use a color combo that is inspired by a poison arrow frog, use an image of a frog with your beads. Like wise with a light house,  piece of cheese cake, waterfall or what ever.  If you do that people will associate your work with the same image that inspired you.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
