Searching the net for quotes that spoke to me with the words easier or childhood was way much “easier “ than last challenge.
I found this one: life was much easier when apple and blackberry were just fruits.
I wanted to use this one, but I didn’t seem to get any ideas on how to start.
So yesterday I sat myself down and just started and went with the flow.
What happened was that I created a page that I am very pleased with, but has nothing to do with the quote I had in mind, so instead of fighting it, I came up with my own quote:
Sewing is so much easier when you know how to.
I still need to learn to sew, but it’s not high on my priority list, I rather be busy with paints and inks, so for the time being I’m rubbish at sewing.
I started the page with collaging some textbook on the page (I think a good place to start if you have no clue what to do)
Next I added some texture paste through a stencil and did some random stamping. To add even some more texture I added a piece of string.
All the circles and string all of a suddon reminded me of buttons and sewing. Recently I bought some sewing dies so this was the perfect opportunity to use them.
I used the die cuts on a tag. I added a flower with a button as heart and wrote my quote along the string.
So another great example of how when you stare yourself blind on an end result you can get blocked, just go where the creative juices take you is a wise lesson I take from this page.
