Start Small Follow-Up: Sketching

 

Simple idea for initials. I do love drawing letters.

Just a quick note before I get to the post…I did have a wonderful post for Friday. And then instead of hitting post, I hit save draft. And I didn’t figure that out until last night. But NOW I am really glad I didn’t post it, because I think it could be better. So now I am going to fine tune it and use it for Friday. So now for the regularly scheduled blogging…

To be honest, I’m not 100% thrilled about results this week. But I will share anyway. My goal was to get some rough sketches to help my husband decide what the heck he wants his next tattoo to look like. But I was getting really frustrated. At first, I thought the reason for my creative block was that there are just too many ideas. But now I think that the problem is I am trying too hard to create a tattoo. Now I am thinking the best approach would be to just have fun and draw whatever feels right. Then I can take something he likes and alter it. We will see what happens.

I am also working on some robot sketches for a cheater quilt contest on Spoonflower. They always have contests I like, but I don’t looooove. So I haven’t submitted any of my work yet because it’s not quite good enough. But I hope to really love one of my ideas soon.

As far as this week, I am (brace yourself) taking the week off. I have a few things I want to finish off, but a pretty grim week of work. So I am going to keep things low-pressure in my crafting life. I will still do an Up Late and Firestarter Friday post. I’m just not going to set any new deadlines.

So wish me good luck on not freaking out this week. And also send some good wishes for inspiration my way. Have a great week everyone, and I will see you Wednesday.

The start of some clouds...now I just need to add more details.
