    Default What inspires you?

    I am just wondering... what do you usually start your LO with? Pictures? Stickers? Papers? A particular idea? Normally, I go with pictures. I've been trying to work on a page using a particular word art and I've scrapped 2 finished LOs and started a few more that I hated. I feel like I have some sort of creative block. Maybe I just need to go back to using pictures to inspire me instead of other things...

    What inspires you?

    I always start with pictures. Even when I'm doing a challenge, I must find pictures that work with the idea/theme, etc before I can do anything.

    Normally I start with pictures - probably 95% of the time. Every once in a while I will get a good idea for a page and take the pictures specifically for it.

    well sometimes I see an idea somewhere that gives me an idea and then I dig out pictures that I know will work. Other times I start with pictures.

    The pictures usually help me dictate the layout/color scheme.

    I don't think I have ever started a LO without the pictures first.
