I am a little stuck. Yesterday I did a fab workshop with Jodi Ohl and began three canvases about a town I would love to have grown up in. Today I was to finish them, but I didn't. Now why is that??? I found myself doing just about everything else but. After considering this I realized that I do have a bit of a fear of collage! It seems I am comfortable with starting, but when it gets to all the touches that really make it pop, I freeze. Have you done this? Any of you out there have an area in art where you are unsure? I am fine with jewelry, I am fine with paper, but collage.... And I do think I know what to do to fix it. I need to just Do It!
I need to let go and just do it, regardless of how it might turn out, cause you see I want it to turn our "right". And I fear if I continue working on them, I will ruin them! Yet the only thing that will help here is me going ahead and working it out and finishing them.
I know it is the experience of doing it and other collages (many) that will help me grow here. I know that the more I do the more I am going to find out what I like to do in a collage. What is my collage style?...I don't know yet! Am I brave enough to find out? Yes, I think I am. (I hear a little voice saying "but what if they turn out awful and you have to throw them away????!!!!!!"). The thought of that makes me cringe. I bet there are even more interesting things I could find out about myself if I delved more deeply.....sounds like a good thing to journal about.
Well, thanks for listening about that. If any of you want to share about your art experiences I would love to hear.
Tea Cup Tuesday tomorrow! I am so excited about this!!! I did a search on Google for "Beautiful Tea Cups" and I found this lovely photo at a place called Tablescapes. I didn't want to use one of my own just yet...tomorrow I will. If anyone else wants to play with us tomorrow, just leave a comment and say you want to play. I will add your blogname to our list and that way others can come to your site to see your tea cups. It is a great way to meet new people!
