Wish I had somethin' finished to show ya...

Hello, sweet peoples!

There are lots of projects going on around here... ALL still in progress. Exploring new materials and textures while trying at the same time to still make the projects look like my style.
I had a thought the other day while I was figuring out workshop ideas:
I have a feeling that some of the other workshop teachers take a little different approach than I do when it comes to creating workshops. It seems like they are teaching what they know and have mastered. I seem to make workshops projects with materials and even techniques that I've never even used before. I'm definitely not saying one approach is bad or good... What I do know is... The approach I've been using is nervewracking! I never know if the project is going to turn out or not until I'm about halfway done. Maybe that's the beauty of mixed media? Anything goes, so all materials and techniques are fair game? If only there weren't deadlines... Oh wait, that keeps me moving forward... so, thank goodness for deadlines.
OK, enough rambling for today...

In conclusion:
The good news is that there's progress.
The bad news is that there's A LOT left to do.

For now, enjoy my new pencil holder and some other detail shots. Hope you're having a great week so far!

  1. Shelly, that's the "thing" about the creative "process"! There's never a right or wrong way. I, too, subscribe to the "Let's see what happens next" school of mixed media art!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo
