How a Wrong Can Turn into a Right

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Just a short blog to share what I did last night while creating the flower ATCs for my Aunt.

I was busy messing up one of the flower ATCs, and wasn't at all pleased with it. Then I thought to add glitter glue in silver and a brownish violet, and now I love it!

Just that one simple act brought what I consider a mess to a new beautiful light. Just think of what we can do if we apply that same philosophy to sparking and achieving our goals!

I never thought that what I am learning while doing art would immediately translate to other lessons in my life. What a refreshing lesson! Not all lessons have to come the hard way.

By the way, I don't buy a lot of stuff either. I just try to stick with neutrals (inks, glitter glue, etc.) that will go with practically anything. I am sure to find glitter on everything, me, my doggies--lol! I will be the glitter girl.

Heck you don't have to be an artist to do an ATC. That is the true joy, just feel free to create something. So far, I mainly do collage and rubber stamping-easy peasy. I experience a joyful freedom in creating something, and having spent 20+ years in a very analytical profession (my disability retired me I little early-lol!), I am pleased to explore this side of myself.

One day you'll say to yourself, Heck, did I do that?! That's beautiful!

Before you know it, you are a true artist in whatever you pursue!

    It is so beautiful. Ok you have inspired me and given me some ideas. You are such a great blogger. Have you thought of doing your own blogsite? You can do it on ATC and clueless people like me can have a guide on what to do. Hope you have a great day. emoticon

    @sprkl3, I agree, did you ever entertain the thought you may have been an artist in a previous incarnation, too...
Becca, what a great way to learn a lesson....with some creativity....

I'm sure they look terrific....

    This may sound a bit crazy, but your blog makes me wonder about this. Maybe we are all artists in some form or other, creating something new that hadn't been there before. Even when we smile at a stranger, we have left something of ourselves (a memory of our kindness) with them. What do you think?
