my week 2 final assignment - you can only upload one ... fingers (& paws of course) crossed that Lilla will like
As you become more aligned with the truth of who you are,
the question of liking yourself goes away. It is a natural state of being.
Oh my goodness. I went up and down and around that roller coaster of creativity for days, should I do this ? and what if I did this ?& WOW ! her work is so cool maybe I should try that - yikes. I think I posted nearly a dozen attempts at this dinner plate design on our private class Facebook page, trying (as I should) to see a dinner plate, a decorative dinner plate (one maybe sold at ... Anthroplpogie for a perfect example) in as many ways as I could think of in the time allowed. I believe deeply in sketching, I believe the more you draw the better your ideas become. After years (and years) of reluctance I now LOVE to sketch. This is a lesson which has been a difficult one to final grasp and to put into practice. But grasp it I have. Grasped & embraced it. But all the time I was trying these other ideas, styles & approaches I had in the back of mind, make sure you have time to do one bold, bright, floral, seed collage on a coffee stained page. Oh, and don't forget the neon paint - uh huh ! Because if all else fails Susan dear - just be yourself and see what happens. I'm thrilled with the outcome (and that is the most important thing !). Can a I have a hallelujah ;-0
Here are a couple more attempts at creating dinner plate designs in a way I thought maybe I should. Not to say that I'm not pleased with these ... I am. But I think I'm kinda thrilled with my final choice :-) go figure - it's JOY FULL !
