Originality issues- advice needed

Reviewing my henna work, i've come to a realization of something
which i have wondered about for a long time- my work is largely
unoriginal and borring. I do run of the mill designs. They're basic,
nothing very new or different.
So what i need is some sharp criticizm. This is not a call for
attention! I need you to see that my work really *is* borring, and
tell me what i can do about it. If you're just going to tell me that
it's not borring, save your energy, because that's not going to help
me and is not what i need in this case.
So when does a design become "your own?" I have looked at countless
designs drawn by others, and re-done them on myself, with slight
changes... i still don't feel that they're "mine", and they are not.
The way i feel, for a design to be your own, it has to have real
flair to it, something that *you* put there, and obviously so. My
designs lack that.... help?
