Play-Time for me!!!!!

Hello Everyone.
I am in the land of lost souls, wallowing with many of you (it seems) searching for inspiration and the re-awakening of the creativity gene, that has certainly done a runner on me BIG TIME.
The picture above is the result of me playing with my paints, inks, pens and other media, it can certainly be classed as mixed as it has a bit of everything. I maybe trying too hard to kick start this comatose gene that is stubbornly resisting my attempts of allurement, but I need to do something!

The Bg  was so much fun to make, I made two cards. I cut around the vine leaves on this one.


 
 The second card is slightly different, but both have elements of flight..the symbolism to my absent mojo is eerie.


I am lingering in anticipation that my gene will be aggrieved, and put me out of my despondency sooner rather than later, as I am really struggling.

Smiles:)

Hi Sue! Boy do I ever know how you feel! I go through the same exact thing more and more often lately. When it happens to me, I think the most frustrating part of it is how much I really WANT to make a card, but just can't do it!

You sure seem to have found some mojo with these wonderful, artsy cards! Love the mix of colors and texture - they really are beautiful. Hope this spark keeps building for you! Hugs!

Beautiful pieces Sue, the colours are vibrant and stimulating in themselves and with the gorgeous background, fabulous flower and fluttering butterflies they are a perfect addition to our challenge. Thanks for joining us at Country View Challenges.

This is AMAZING! LOVE the bright colors and I adore all the texture--especially that fabulous flower! I have a DT call going on for a new challenge--House of Cards--and I'd love for you to enter if you're interested! :)

Well, my friend, it's comforting to know we don't suffer alone--not that I wish it on anyone, mind you. However, hard to say you had no mojo when you created such gorgeous backgrounds!

I love that I'm reading about all these wonderful challenges you're finding Onion. It certainly soothes my weary mind knowing that your caliber of talent has ruts too. I'm so lost for mojo it's not even funny. Your cards however breathe a airy vibrant and passionate sense of beauty and creativity that I desperately needed to see!
Thanks so much for the inspiration you've given me today.
Hugs to you my friend,
Quirks
