G is for Germinate

The ABCs of Simple Scrapbooking is a 26 week video series. In each episode, I’ll explore one fundamental idea of stress-free memory keeping.

G is for Germinate

There’s a bit of irony in that I’ve been thinking about this idea for a while now, letting it grow in my mind. I’m now a big believer in letting ideas marinate for a time before acting. I think this is especially important when you’re feeling stuck. Instead of pressing forward, let go for a bit and see if the easy path comes to you.

    I do a little of both. Sometimes the mojo is right there – it gives me a picture of the final result, then all I have to do is put it together. Other times it’s absolutely blank. I don’t know where to start much less how to finish. I’ve seen some interviews where the person is asked what they start with – paper first, photos first, a theme, etc. For me, it depends, and I retain the right to change my mind mid-stream. Right now I’m trying to figure out an art journal page I want to make. Not that I have any idea what I’m doing but I put myself on a buying diet and I have to use supplies from the shop I want to buy more from and post the result on their gallery and on one of my blogs (which aren’t kept up to date, either.) So – I gotta do an art journal page so I can get more goodies.

    I sometimes jump on ideas. It’s those ones tht seem to come together quickly for me. If I think too long I often move on to the next shiny object!
