Need A Creative Boost?

So when you are stuck in a creative rut, what do you do? Some of us browse online galleries, flip through scrappy magazines or study sketches to inspire us. Well, have you ever thought of trying a new technique? Expanding your creative horizons by trying something new is a great way to get the mojo flowing. So, if you are looking for a new technique to try, check out the Crop Addict Totally Technique Forum. It is chock full of various techniques to try - from DIY flowers, to simple ways to add a finishing detail to your layout, to fun altered art projects, to photo editing tips. And to help you navigate the forum, we even have a technique index (updated monthly) for reference. Here are just a few of my favorite techniques you can find in the Totally Technique Forum...

Have fun exploring the Totally Technique forum! Hopefully you'll find some new techniques to try or rediscover some old ones you haven't used in awhile. If you try one of the techniques in the forum, be sure to share your layout here, on the Crop Addict FaceBook page or in the Crop Addict gallery!
