    Claudia's Spontaneity Exercise...

    With thanks to Miss Lemon

    Here is the little exercise I mentioned before, which is good for encouraging free-flowing creativity and fearless spontaneity:

    If you can, itís better to stand up at a table while doing this rather than sitting.

    Stuff You Need (it must all be right at hand on the worktop):
    1. Non-pristine loose sheets of plain paper or cardstock (coloured is fine: whatever tatty old stuff you youíve got knocking around - donít choose, just grab something).
    2. A tray of assorted PP scraps, cut-out images, leftover borders, cut-out words etc. (Donít use your best stash - you need to feel thereís nothing to lose).
    3. Crayons, paints, glue, pens etc Ė all the usual (whatever youíve got)

    What to Do:
    Work really fast (right from the start) on 3 sheets at the same time, painting, crayoning or collaging backgrounds, adding images, scraps and borders, using colour, scribbling, writing and doodling.

    Do not allow yourself to think for more than a couple of seconds about anything. As soon as you catch yourself deliberating over a decision or slowing down, put that sheet down and move onto another one. Keep switching Ė donít get too focused on one sheet.

    If you get Ďblank paper syndromeí and start hesitating before youíve even started a sheet, close your eyes and pick an item from your tray as a starting point. No cheating - the first thing you pick up goes on the page.

    And thatís it! Really simpleÖ 3 sheets at the same time, really fast, without hesitating or deliberating. It sounds easy, but for those of us who arenít naturally spontaneous, itís actually quite difficult.

    Give it a try Ė I find it really helpful, and I get a big creative buzz while Iím doing it.
