Occasionally I’ll find myself in a creative funk, just staring at the blank, white page of my journal, without a clue as to what to fill it with. When I’m feeling most creative, I’ll grab a sheet of paper and jot down ideas to use later when the creative ideas come to a halt. I thought perhaps you’d find some use in one of my lists so here it is. Do with it as you wish. You can pick and choose on the days when a little inspiration is in order, or you can turn it into a 40 day art journal challenge. The choice is yours. 
Choose a lyric from one of your favorite songs and bring it to life on a page. 
Go crazy with masking tape! 
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle- scoop up junk mail, paper bags, paper scraps, fabric scraps, WHATEVER, and use these things to create a background, then go nuts with color.
Journal about something or someone that inspires you. 
Paste a photograph that brings back a good memory to your page and design around it. 
Footprints. 
Turn found objects into stamps. A few good ones would be: an empty toilet paper roll, bubble wrap (if you can resist popping the bubbles!), crumpled paper, the sole of a shoe… The options are endless! 
Pick one word, any word. Include it in your entry. 
Illustrate what change looks like to you.
Silhouette(s). 
Happy vs. sad.
Draw a map of a made up place you’d like to visit/live. 
Go outside, sketch, paint, draw, or doodle whatever you see in front of you. 
Grab a few magazines and cut out your perfect outfit. Journal about where you’d wear it to, how it would make you feel…
Create an abstract painting of the room you’re in. 
Fingerprints.
If you were on death row, what would your last meal be? How would you spend your day? (A bit morbid, but just go with it!)
Practice painting or drawing letters in a new font you’ve never tried before. 
Burned paper. 
Opposite hand. Created a page using your less dominant hand. If you’re ambidextrous, use the hand you use less often. 
Circle madness. 
Don’t think, just do. Just slap some paint down and go to town. 
Playing with patterns.
A special someone. Journal about someone who you love dearly. 
Collage. 
The alphabet. 
Choose a song that reminds you of a dark time and bring it to life on the page. 
Get rid of it. Got something bothering you? Spill it out onto your journal page and leave it there. 
Tea art. Splash it, spill it, drip it, blob it… Create a background using your tea. 
What would you do if you hit the lottery? 
These are a few of my favorite things.
Create a bridge leading from where you are now, and where you want to be. 
Bad habits. 
Create a self portrait. 
A picture is worth a thousand words. 
Pick a quote.
 Draw a tree and replace the leaves with random objects/doodles. 
Write down all of the things you dislike about yourself then cover it up with gesso, and write down all of the things you like about yourself.
Design a room that would inspire you just being in it. 
Childhood memories.

SOMETHING TO PONDER: George Carlin George Carlin’s wife died early in 2008 and George followed her, dying in July 2008. It is ironic George Carlin - comedian of the 70’s and 80’s - could write something so very eloquent and so very appropriate. An observation by George Carlin: The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.  We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.  We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.  We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.  These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.  Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.  Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent. Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.  Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind. And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away. George Carlin
