Creativity doesn’t always mean new. It means using what you got in a new way. How 2017 has my creativity in the (hobo) bag!!!
Do you find yourself wearing clothes that don’t fit right? I chalked it up to my body being awkward. Too tall. Too wide in the shoulders. It wasn’t until a friend of mine taught me how to deconstruct my clothes that I was able to start rebuilding my body confidence.
As I have shared before, my attempts at using transfer gel to add lettering and designs to my milk painting furniture has . . . failed. It would be easy to shelf the gel and perfect the fine art of just painting furniture. But I decided to treat the process like I would learning to play the sax — start with the basics and keep practicing. My efforts paid off.
It had been a long week where I felt like every project’s status was “In progress,” but that nothing had been completed or scratched off a long to-do list. So, I decided I was going to get one thing done. I painted sticks.
Mike’s version of a roasted vegetable salad was inspired by a book purchased at a local garage sale. While it failed to nail the presentation, the taste made up for it.
I decided to take my creative process with milk painting one step further with transfer gel. My effort was a fail — but taught me a lesson about the creative process.
