It was time to create but I had no mojo. You see I have been busy planning my very first public showing of my art, an all day crop, as well as a visit from a dear friend. Planning hasn't left much time for creativity. This day was particularly busy, but I had to get something created for my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® post. Well, what is a girl to do???
I go to my studio and the thought process begins. I grab a canvas and the new Gelatos® Steampunk . I knew I wanted to use the Gelatos® Black Cherry for the flowers. Creativity begins. As I create, I am not too sure how this is going to turn out. Not so sure I like it. However, as I continue, blending and smoothing edges with water and my fingers, adding shading and light, I begin to like it more and more. To my surprise on this day, I'm feeling like, "Wow, sometimes when I do not want to create, I am able to create something more beautiful than when I do want to create." LOL! It's a fun and silly thought and for me it's true...just for this moment.
I am feeling happy and stress free. Feeling grateful for being on the summer design team, for it has given me direction and a reason to create and relax. So perfect, for an otherwise busy day. Here it is. The not so cute start and the awesome finish.
