One way to get the inspiration and ideas flowing is to mix your media. I’m not talking about adding a bit of collage to your writing or adding some paint to your sculpture. What I mean is mixing the media in your head. Give your muse something to think about and churn over.
Examples of mixing media
If you are writing about a character, how would you describe them, not in words but in sound? If you are painting a picture, what word, or words, would describe it to someone who hasn’t seen it? If you are creating a sculpture what sound would it make?
Mixing the media makes you look (listen and feel) at what you are creating using a different sense. What sound is that character making? What colour is that word? What song is that image singing? What does your canvas smell like? Use words, colours, sounds and smells to describe your art. Take your art in a new direction or simply push yourself to another level in your creative journey.
So if you’re stuck, or need a little inspiration, try to mix your media. Use sounds to describe words, use words to describe images, use smells to describe shapes, use shapes to describe words, use colours to describe sounds and so on, I think you get the idea.
Have a wonderful, creative day and realise your creative potential.
