Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: It Can Happen In Stages
I can't remember when I first began today's art journal pages. I know I did some painting and them some journaling on the background and then days, maybe weeks, went by. I would pass by the craft room and at certain times the journal would call to me. So, I would walk in and add a little more and then walk away and wait for the calling again. This morning I woke up knowing I needed to add a touch of dazzling diamonds glitter and I would be done :)
Making cards I sometimes start to believe that art needs to begin and end in one sitting. The idea that leaving something "unfinished," even for a short time means your just not creative enough or good enough or something enough. That belief is hogwash! Art is a process. Yes, sometimes it will be a "one-sitting" serving and you will have a completed project. Other times it will be a multi-sitting...maybe even multi-year, process - just like so many other things in life. Our growth, our change, happens in stages. Allow your art to follow this natural flow as well.
I hope you have a beautiful, creative, love-filled and inspiring weekend! May this day and every day be one more stage in your process!
