Sometimes all you need to do, is simply begin ~

Lately, I've been missing creating artwork...
By artwork
I mean assemblages, collages
and things like that.

Seems I got so caught up with sewing so many goodies
since the first of the year
which has been wonderful, don't get me wrong.
But I'm a weirdo in the fact that I love creating
something different all the time.

Well, the longer you go without doing a certain thing,
you begin to doubt yourself!
Or at least I do anyway.
I've been glancing through some of my photos of  past artwork
and have been slowing building my confidence to get back
into assemblage artwork.
I do love it so much!

So, my friends ~ the lesson for today is to:
simply begin.

The minute I started working on this beautiful clock case,
transforming the interior and getting ready
for the new treasures that I'll tuck inside...
I could feel that feeling again!!!
The interior has now been lined
with gorgeous old sheet music.

What treasures will it hold?
I'm not quite sure yet...we'll see!

Wishing you a wonderful, creative Wednesday dear friends!

hugs and love,

I haven't created art in such a long time! I miss it too but, you're right... If you step away you do doubt. Beautiful first step back!


In France we say "tout voyage commence par un premier pas" that I can translate as "each travel begins by a first step". and when something seems hard to do, I just think "only one step, before another one" and it's allows me to go on.
Love your idea with the partition.

Go girlfriend! I know you can do it since you've done it before. I even bought one of your beauties, which now sits in my art room. Remember Prairie Girl? Have a great day! XO Sue

I can't wait to see this when it is complete. Everything you makes is absolutely beautiful!

Great piece, Dawn! I have a small clock that would make for a great little showcase of something. I just don't know what. I think you are off to a great start with the music sheet backing. You are right though. I should just start by taking out the clock part {which is broken} and I'm sure it will come together once I have more of blank slate to work with.

Truer words have never been spoken..."just begin." This piece is going to be amazing. It already is. How exciting!

Maureen said...

Sandi said...

I don't have a lot of time to create in the summer so sometimes I get that lost feeling. Maybe I can start again soon...

I know whatever you make out of this that it will be beautiful!!

Sweetest Dawn,
the clock with its new "wall paper" looks so wonderful, and I can imagine how beautiful it will look when finished in your gorgeous nature style! I have dayes too, when staring into the air, telling myself to start --just start ,lol-
So happy you started dear friend.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

Thank you for this post. Your words are very true. The longer one waits the greater the obstacle. Just begin is a good mantra to have. Your work is always stunning and you should never doubt your creative abilities dear!!! Safe and Festive Fourth...
