I think I'm going to be venting a bit today......and have pretty much figured out the reason for my frustration. We all experience it I know....too little time!
I just returned from the first of 4 trips that will take place in the next 30 days....now I am looking forward to them, but the lack of substantial studio time is making me itchy. My projects have consisted of small pieces that can be accomplished within several days. Really....there's nothing wrong with that and I enjoyed making every one....
Except....now I'm not. I'm forcing myself to make something small for time's sake and this current one is nothing but a big fat failure. Okay, sure it will probably get better and so what if it doesn't??
So, what I need is a big challenging project.....and time to get one started....I'm reminding myself....it will happen soon and then I'll be venting about that!!!
Cotton fabric that I marbleized at a Fiber Junkies mini retreat
Using a combination of seed and bugle beads, I started to follow the black lines.....this is all the further I got before I knew it wasn't the right path...so off they came.
Some hand embroidery has been added and ripped out and added again. And there is sits for more inspiration. I rarely have 'artist block'.....maybe I do need these trips?
