Today I’m talking to all those people out there who look at lovely cards or scrapbooking pages or any craft really and say “I’d love to do that but I’M NOT CREATIVE.”
Well people I’m here to tell you we ALL have the ability to be creative. I’ve found some quotes that say it better than I can so take a look at these. This is gonna be a long one so go grab a cuppa before you start reading.
Creativity is simply the human brain forming new connections between ideas, and we all are engaged in this process every day. The common idea that there are some people who are creative and some who are not is a myth. On some level, we are all artists. We are all creators. -Michael Gungor
Creativity isn’t this big scary thing, its learning and growing and playing; it’s trying new things and laughing at your disasters and every now and then creating something so amazing you’re blown away. Everyone had to start somewhere and everyone takes their inspiration from someone else so be inspired and you might just inspire someone else : )
An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail – Edwin Land
You might think I’m pretty talented (or even just a little bit talented I hope) BUT it took me a long time to feel confident to put my work on display and what you’re seeing on here is generally the successes not the disasters that get buried deep in the rubbish bin. Not every card is a masterpiece. I’m not perfect and sometimes I get it wrong but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop creating!
A key part of being creative is seeing potential in things. Start with yourself and work your way out! – Colin Wright
Creativity is not a competition.
Oh and the post title is from a clever chappy called Albert Einstein. He also said Creativity is Intelligence having Fun!
