Stuck

February 25, 2009

Do you ever start an art project that no matter how long you sit there and work with it, it just doesn't look right? Maybe it needs something tucked here or there, but you just can't figure out what it is...

I have those moments quite often. Maybe it is because I am getting older. Or maybe it's because I have a vision in my head, but it didn't take shape in my project.

Like this album, that I have had all the stuff to make it for years... I mean years! I have started it, but still not please with it. So I will come back and look at it, play with some more embellishments, ribbons and laces. No wonder it takes me a while to finish a project!

I have learned it is best to walk away and come back later... That is like the update to my blog. I made my banner! YEH ME!!! But yet, I just don't think I like it. Maybe it's all the white space. Am I alone? Or does others create something and then get stuck? ***see I am still playing ... didn't like all the white space on the blog***

I get "stuck" all the time...I think that's why I have so many unfinished {barely begun} projects all around my house! Love the banner you made:) It's beautiful; playing with the size might help a bit.

Oh, Sheila! I'm the QUEEN of STUCK! I've got all kinds of things that I drag out after months of being hidden away and dink around with them a little more. I love your new header and you obviously eliminated any white space before I saw it. Love the little bluebird...;-).

Oh yes I DO get stuck alot!! I have to put it down... and then come back to it with fresh eyes. Sometimes I tear it apart 2 or 3 times! haha

Your journal is beautiful!

Your new blog look is lovely! Like a walk in a spring time garden!

I get stuck quite a bit! And it often leads to frustration for me...often having to just leave the space I am working in to go do something else. I think your journal is very lovely! And congrats on your blog banner! Give it time and before you know it you will finish one that you fall in love with {only probably to switch it up again later...I can't help myself!}
