Questions, ideas, head space
Just mainly thoughts today, or not 🙂
I know we’ve probably had this conversation before but I do have so much trouble sorting out my ideas, my mind runs rampant sometimes with everything I want to do and I find it hard to make sense of it all. I don’t think theres a single day ( or minute) that goes by without me thinking of different ideas and sometimes my head swims and its so frustrating that when I actually sit down to do something I go blank lol I have so much trouble getting things out of my head
So my question is how do you get your ideas from your head to work through your hands
I want to do everything and because of that everything gets so jumbled and then I get so annoyed and frustrated that I have walk away for a while, I said to a friend once that I feel like I should open up the top of my head, let it all out , close it and start again lol Wish i could do that, so how do you all do it.
I think I know the first thing Ruth will say and that’s JOURNAL JOURNAL JOURNAL lol so yes im finally about to that, but first I have to make one that suits me and here it is , see the blank cover !!!!!!!!!!!!
After that little rant i have been just trying to make small things to keep me busy, our life is pretty stressed at the moment and i will explain that on the forum but for now here’s just some small things i did make !!
This little box and books are from a tutorial by Luthian at her Altered Alchemy blog, i really love her work so i decided to try one of these, orginally in copper but i thought i’d try first with some card stock, its only about 1 inch big and i had fun, then had to make some little books to go with it, made from leather.
Then thanks to my friend i scored a piece of copper so made a real one, trickier but so much fun again
Next i made a sheet of silk paper and then !!!
I wanted to make some sort of book of it, i used skewers for the binding and stitched in place
It has 5 pages and i have no idea what to do with it now lol i know thats not a good pic sorry,
So can you see my dilema, if i could work on one thing at a time and get it finished properly i would be so much happier but i seem to flit from one thing to the next because i cant wait to try everything, any thoughts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
