Art Journaling

My Muse is waking up....

Friday, March 4, 2011

It's been a while...

...and I am feeling a bit frustrated.
Needing, wanting to do something creative and having some kind of block.
It's almost painful. Like a loss. I have been sitting with it, waiting, trying not to force anything, let it flow...
but nothing is coming out.

It is swirling around inside of me feeling trapped. In my stomach...then up to my head, down my arms...back up...trying to find an exit.

I have never felt quite like this before. The creative juices always poured freely out of me in the form of many mediums/styles/techniques. This is new and uncomfortable.

Any wisdom, guidance, thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

“Our real discoveries come from chaos,
from going to the place
that looks wrong
and stupid
and foolish.”

Pretty Useful

I purchased this chest of drawers because I needed the top surface to place things on and because it fit the tight space where I wanted it to go. I liked the look of the small drawers but thought they would be pretty useless...because they were an odd shape and for me, out of sight is out of mind.

Then, laying in bed one night, I had an idea.
I could use the small drawers to store and organize our tools that we use on a regular basis.
Hammer, screw drivers, random nails and screws, washers, zip-ties, tape measure, garden gloves, etc...

It worked perfect!

Then I made little tags from some glitter, scrapbook paper leftovers and tied them with surplus, exotic yarn from my stash.

Now a functional...and pretty piece.
