Being creative comes with a lot of perks. You can be more expressive, have a better sense of self-awareness, and you have a positive method of de-stressing. Plus, you can even make a living from the art you create. However, creative people also bump into challenges, and one of them is a creative block. Having zero ideas for a project can be quite frustrating, especially when you are running after a deadline. In case you’ve tried your un-blocking tricks and still come up blank, her are more methods that can help get those creative juices flowing.

1. Take a walk or go on a drive

Sometimes, the reason who you have creative block is because you have too many things on your mind. Take a break and step away for awhile from the things that are distracting you by strolling around the block or driving around the city. It can help clear your mind as you focus on the ‘new’ objects around you. Go people watching, observe the movement of trees, or admire the color of lights. You just might see everyday things in a new light, giving you ideas to start with.

2. Try a change of workplace

You may feel most comfortable in your studio or at your desk when working on your art. But when you’re feeling uncreative, being comfortable might not be helping you generate ideas. Go somewhere different, like your garden, a coffee shop, or beside the beach. Then try and challenge yourself to focus and adapt to the new environment. The process could open up your mind to new ideas or a new work process.

3. Keep a list of ideas

As you go through your every day ritual, there will be spur of the moment ideas that you say you’ll just mark and use later on. Instead, each time an idea pops up in your mind, write it down right away. This way, when you need some fuel for creativity, you have your list ready to get the gears working.

4. Challenge yourself to try something new

Most artists have a favorite medium or technique. But using the same materials and processes could make you feel limited or stagnant. Working with a new medium or using a new method could force you to approach the project another way, allowing your brain to work harder and look at things from another perspective.  

5. Just force yourself to start

If you can’t think of a subject yet, then browse at some of the works of your favorite artists and try to copy it. Or make a drawing of one of your favorite subjects, then start copying it again and again, but each time you draw a copy try to improve or change something in the drawing. The point is to get your brain working and your hands moving.

A creative block may also be a sign that your mind and body are tired, so take a break if needed and try to relax. Meditate, get a massage, watch your favorite series, read a good book, or take a nap. You’ll go back to work refreshed and re-energized and ready to squeeze out those awesome ideas.

Colors really are a wonderful thing because they bring life to the world. If there were no color in the world then everything would just be so dull and bland. All of the harmonies and contrasts that colors bring to this world just make things so much more beautiful and makes them stand out just that much more.

Not only that but colors are inspiring too, they inspire feelings and emotions and in a sense they are those things in themselves.
