A small triumph11:58 am
Or at least the very beginnings of one.
I've had some ideas bubbling away very slowly in my brain for a while now, ideas for the future, my creative future to be exact, but I've either been too emotionally drained to make a serious start on anything much or I've been too damn scared of failure to pick up my sketchbooks and even attempt anything.
This morning though I put my fears aside (almost) and ignored my inner voice of doom and perfectionism and just decided to have a play.
I remember once at college my crazy tutor, Ron seeing I was having a bad few days at the drawing board, just sent me off to the print room to "play" just to see what would happen and get me out of my funk. He was a wise man, it worked then, and I can, albeit tentatively feel my creative funk lifting ever so slightly after my play on the pc this morning.
The designs I've created are basic, they need work, but I actually did them, and of that I'm kinda proud.
These are the first steps to creating a fabric range in honour of my Florence, she is my muse.
