One method I use to break through an artistic block is journaling, and another method is creating decorative boxes. I enjoy taking a variety of materials, developing a theme, and converting a plain wood box into something that's fun to look at. It's a great way to use up some of the stacks of art paper I find difficult to pass up when I shop. It's also a nice confidence booster.
The box shown here displays a tag with the image of a young man on it. The photo is vintage and I just love the expression on his face. Imagine having that kind of confidence at such a young age!
