Always–finish and start…

Yes, finish up some things, start others. I am always grateful that I haven’t faced any creative blocks and that I always have something new to get started on.

Trying to finish up my little cards, I screened my label on the backs. Well, at least I tried to!

Some of these came out all right…some, not so much. On this one, I overwrote on the paint with a black pen and it was fine.

The light backgrounds needed a different paint, of course, and I found some actual screen printing ink that I didn’t know I had. Not the color I had planned on using, but it was made for printing on fabric!

It works much better than thin paint and I had a tip on my FB post that small, detailed screens NEED thicker paint. I did not know that and I’m sure that tip will help me in the future.

Hmmm…which of my challenges to start on? I’m not naturally tactful, so I’ll say it straight out…I’m starting with the least attractive project to me. I definitely want to do it and will enjoy it. However, it’s the photo inspiration project so I’m working from someone else’s initial vision and putting my interpretation on it. It will be fun, but my goals for this year are aimed at bringing forth only my own original ideas. So it needs to be done!

I have a very clear picture in my head of what I want to do, so I started gathering my materials.

And hit a stopping point almost immediately! I need cream or white cheesecloth and all I have is brightly colored. I don’t want to try to place it after I sew the mica tiles down. It will work better if I do it at the same time, so this will have to wait until I get to the store.

Guess this is a sign that I should be lazy, maybe read a book, knit or play a game. Do something different. Yep, I can handle some do-nothing time.

As long as it doesn’t last too long!

    • Thankfully, I can’t envision a creative block, either. I think it’s pent up artistic wishes from all the years of working at a day job and squeezing in quilt time as I could. I have fun every single day!
