The #creativeUNblock project

If you know me at all, I talk about The Jealous Curator all the time.  If you don’t know her, please, do yourself a favor and visit her blog.  She wrote this awesome book called, Creative Block.  The book is filled with beautiful contemporary art and it’s just lovely.  What’s more is that JC interviewed the artists about their creative process and more importantly, how they work through blocks.  So, not only is the book filled with gorgeous art, it is filled with ideas on how to get yourself unstuck from a creative rut or block.  JC took it to the next level and she is choosing a creative unblock project from the book to do each month of this year.  Which brings me to my most recent works I’ve been…  working on:

January’s #creativeUNblock project was to find one image – any image – and copy it on card stock 50 times.  Then, find ways to alter that image 50 times.  I loved this project so much, it’s March and I’m still working on it.  And besides, I have not yet completed altering Diana (my chosen picture) 50 times.

Who is Diana Vernon?

If you have Instagram, and are interested in doing these #creativeUNblock projects, type in the hashtag #creativeUNblock to see what the community is working on.  It’s great fun and an even better way to get yourself out of a creative block or rut.  Also, if you want to find out what this month’s unblock project is visit The Jealous Curator’s blog or her Facebook page.

More to come and happy making!
