Decisions, Decisions....


When I describe this blog, I invite people to explore the creative process with me....
Sooooooooo.......
I think I'll start taking pictures of the entire process (more on that tomorrow). Right before I wrote this I was sitting on my family room floor (studio is too messy to spread out-lol!), sitting in this sea of acid green, red, cream and antique silver ribbon, rick rack, tinsel garland and fuzzy yarn, trying to decide which bits and pieces will be added to this project. Now this is why I fell in love with the altered art influence. AND this is why it drives me nuts....to the point that I know that AA will never be my exclusive medium. So many possibilities. SO many decisions to make: trims, pictures, trims, doo-dads, trims, ribbons, trims....you get the idea. Embellishing projects sends my brain into this whirling, dizzy state of indecision...To quote my favorite cartoon character, Charlie Brown: "ARGH!!"
I suppose I had better get back to it.....This jingle bell must get listed tonight, which means I still have to finish it, picture it (including editing), write it up and get it going before soccer tonight....
Don't think I'll be taking bets on that one.....

I read this and a light bulb goes off in my head. I have never been able to figure out why it was that when I sat down to scrap book or do some AA that my brain turned into pudding. There are just too many choices! You know with painting there are choices but not just anything will work, you can't shade green with red. Thank you for the light bulb moment. LOL

YES! There are just too many possibilities. I really like it for that "anything goes" attitude, but it's really hard to stop thinking when there are no rules!
