Okay, be honest... have you ever felt as if you have been drained of all your creative juices? Can't seem to find your mojo? Drawing a blank for your next project? Need to be rejuvenated?

Well, here are some ideas on how to clear your mind and get those creative juices flowing again!

1. Keep a notepad with you at all time.

Write down ideas you have for projects. Take notes of new experiences and how they make you feel. Make quick sketches of new places.

2. Hang out with creative people.

Creative people can be inspiring and rejuvenating. Great opportunity to sound board some ideas. These people can also be your biggest supporters and promoters!

3. Collaborate with another artist.

Everyone has different interests and styles, you might learn something, or teach them something. Work towards a goal together. Even the change of atmosphere may inspire you.

4. Attend a new workshop or class.

Maybe there is something you've always wanted to learn, go for it! This may open a new door in your career or interests. You'll meet new and exciting new people to share ideas and techniques.

5. Experience something new.

How about a new restaurant or food? Take a weekend to go to a new place, along with your camera and notepad! Take a hike, nature is the best inspiration there is!

6. Visit your community library or museum.

Check out a book on Art History. How about a new book on different techniques you can learn. Is there a new exhibition at your local museum. Take a day and visit.

7. Tidy up your studio.

Clean up the clutter in your studio, make a fresh start. Breeze through some of your reference materials, you just might find an idea for the next project. How about some new music to listen to while cleaning!

And lastly: 8. Don't ever give up!

Imagine yourself in a place just beyond your goal or dream. If you can imagine it, it's already for the taking. Always remember, thoughts and ideas become real things, as long as you are always reaching for them.

Make time this month to try a few of these tips. You never know what inspiration is out there unless you are there to capture it! I hope you have found these tips helpful and will enjoy some new experiences.
