It has been such a very long time since I employed a sketch as my inspiration kick off, and how I have missed it! I had forgotten how much fun it is to be guided and challenged by the sketch, and my all time favorite sketch blog is mojo Monday
While watching the Crown on Netflix and pulling out several stamp sets and marveling at the stunning lack of a cactus in all my collection ( how is that possible) I just layered papers and patterns and textures until I found a delicious mix I was happy with. Sometimes the process of pulling together the elements is as rewarding as the finished product, kind of like decorating a room or making a meal!
The act of creating is raw and romantic, it opens your mind and your heart, it's meant to be fun and free, like all the joys of life, don't take it too seriously, don't extract the happiness from it by being too comparative or competitive. I speak to myself mostly, I had lost my reason for creating for a long time, and I'm getting back to "me" one day at a time.
Knit, bake, sew, read, stamp, paint, eat, love, and be you... you are beautiful, you inspire me daily, I love you all so much for that!!!
