A great way to awaken your creativity is to take a hike. It can be a in a city park, the country, or the woods, whatever works for you.
You will need a camera (don't have one try a disposable) on this journey or if you prefer a sketchbook with supplies, and a notebook or journal.
When you start your walk take your time, click pictures of plants, trees, stones, sticks, from a distance and very close up. Don't forget the birds and bugs, the colors on them can be amazing. Collect items for your visual journal or idea box, so you can refer to them in the future. And most important enjoy being outside and absorbing nature.
What nature can do to help with your creative process:
Plants can help you develop color schemes
Trees give you ideas for working texture
Stones can inspire new shapes as well as color
Birds and bugs are great for color, texture, and shape
It's nice to have time to let your mind wander and taking a hike will let you do just that. You will be surprised how the ideas start flowing while you are on your hike. Don't forget to write them down as they pop into your head, when you are on a hike there are no bad ideas.
Journal prompt - While on your hike take a few moments and describe what you see around you. How does it make you feel? What do you smell? What do you hear? Keep this info in your journal.
