I know I have gone over this before, but I feel it is worth repeating...lucky you!
Personally, I cannot create something that doesn't have a specific "purpose" nor something that is not "me" nor something that I would not welcome into my own home. I have to be authentic when I am creating something because if I am not, it is evident, at least me. I did the opposite for many many years (creating what others wanted to see) and in the process, lost sight of myself completely. I hate admitting this because I brought this on myself (be careful what you wish for) and at one point, I thought I had lost that loving feeling for creating. When I (finally) realized that I was upset, anxious and even crying over it...
I had had enough and had to stop in my tracks.
Happily, like any other lesson/journey in life (after the creative pit I had gotten myself into) I learned so much from it and praise the Lord, I am still standing. Now, do not get me wrong, those creative crash tests (mistakes) still happen but the way I handle them is much different. For instance, it happened yesterday with the little Christmas teaser I posted. I should have taken down the post because just moments after posting...I tore apart the entire project.
Welcome to my creative process. Because I consider that I have a creative soul and am a brave girl, it is okay (it is for you, too.)
You might cringe but (man, there are alot of butts in this post!) it is just paper...just ink, maybe a canvas, a few embellishments, a HUGE mess well, and yes, a little time, but ultimately, like anything else, if you don't feel something is "you" is "your best" or is something that reflects you...you can feel it, and it is not a happy feeling and can be unsettling.
Remember this from "The Seed"
I believe it is called a Mulligan in the golfing world and I have a post somewhere about it...and hey, please don't look at it as "wasted time" because it isn't. Look at it as a lesson, maybe a reminder and then make the change. Incidentally, after my big creative crash yesterday, I created one of my most favorite mixed media projects ever and I am now writing a class on it, for both in-store and on-line.
