    Default What do you do...

    when you are stuck on a layout? I sort of have an idea for one, but it's just not all clicking for me. So I've been playing around with stuff for a while, but I feel like that's kind of wasting time I could be scrapping something else. I might put it away and try another LO. Just curious if you all just keep going until you finish or take a break from it.

    Put it away! I just start on something else, then come back to it with a "clean slate". Usually if I wait a day or two, then it comes together better.

    I would start on something else too and come back to it later.

    ditto! When I've forced myself to finish a layout, well, that feeling/frustration transfers itself to my layouts... I don't usually like the finished product.

    Yep, i do the same thing. I'll take a break for a little bit. maybe even go online and check out some other's, and then i'll see a part of a layout (like a frame or flower, or position of a picture) and I will get an instant layout in my head!

    LOL - I took a break and went to AC Moore! I do have a good idea in my head now, so all I have to do is find the time to finish it I guess I just wanted you all to reassure me that I wasn't wimping out!

    I'm late but I would've put it away too. I did the same all through high school and college when I was stuck on a question or idea and always would think of the answer while working on something else. But if I sat there and thought too much I would never get it. lol
