I 'Love' To Play
'I Love To Play'
I love to play... well actually it would be more accurate to say that I'm learning to love play. I nearly gave up on this piece and had to keep reminding myself that if it came to nothing it didn't matter... it seems I put too much pressure on myself to produce something even when my intention is to simply 'play to my hearts content'. How do I get to the point of just enjoying creating for the fun of it??? Any suggestions??? Hmmmm, thinking about this, I think I could get some great advice from the 6 & 7 year olds I work with everyday. I think I'd better ask them about my dilemma tomorrow!
See I can't help myself... I seem to need to find purpose in what I've made. The piece I showed you a few days ago (which scanned way brighter than it is in real life back then), has become the cover of a creative journal I'm currently using. It's kinda nice to have it on the cover because it's reminding me to approach my creative time in a new, fresh way.... well at least that's what I'm attempting to do!
I wonder how long it will take for me to find something to do with my newest piece, 'I love to play'? Only time will tell I suppose.
Are you taking time to play? If so, let me know what you've been up to, as I'd love to know what you've been experimenting with!
On a very exciting note, today I had an email from Stampington and I am going to be a cover girl in a couple of months! So happy :)
