Where have all of the ideas gone?
I am really frustrated today! I am meant to be starting a new freelance book project today, but I have been working a bit full on lately, so I just could not face it. I decided to give myself the full day off and would you believe I hit my studio for some creative play time! I have been itching for so long to sit down and do something creative for myself (just for the pleasure of it, rather than as a "job".)
The trouble is that I am overwhelmed! There's so much great stuff out there and I just don't know where to start. I want to try collage, and modelling clay, and felt pictures, print making.....etc etc.....I sat down in my studio drawing and sketching this afternoon but nothing seemed good enough.
I turned to reading some blogs for some inspiration, (but I am meant to be DOING rather than reading about what other people are DOING) and it has just left me a bit flat in the end!
I could not even get my Inspiration Monday stuff together today. Maybe I just need to "chill out" for a bit and let the creative mind just rest a bit.
So I will leave you with some artwork created for some pyjamas last year, rather than some truly brilliant art piece that I "whipped up" this afternoon!
