Creativity or chaos ??

Posted by Picasa

Yes, that is the question ! This was my desk a few days
ago. I was trying out some new art journaling techniques
and it involved cutting out lots of strips of papers,
I actually had fun doing it but then had to tidy it all
up yesterday. I am trying to learn new techniques and
really love the pages of Teesha Moore, her style is unique
and I know it is not everyone's taste. She has some really
good videos out on Youtube that explain her process,
which is what I was trying here, not really sure that I
have her talent and ability to pull it off but I had fun
experimenting with it. If I ever get the page to where
I like it then I will post it here.

My problem seems to be making all the elements on my
page blend in so that it seems like a seamless piece of
Some of my pages are OK and others I cannot get it to
work, there is just something not quite right. As Teesha
says though, it is all about playing and it looks like I
will have to do more playing to get more experience :)

I love Teesha's work a lot too. Just keep playing with it Marlene and you will be making a wonderful piece of art in no time.

Haven't seen her work yet but, if I know you, you'll make it all come together! :)

Ooo, her work is awesome, and I must watch those videos. Thanks for mentioning it! Well, come on, now, we want to see what you came up with!

Clearly creativity here! I love that I can recognize some of that paper. Keep working on your pages and eventually you will not struggle with them so much. It is all about practice. At least that is the message I am getting from everyone. We will have to remember this in a year and see where we are then. (probably still thinking we need to get better haha)

It's totally about playing. The more you journal and have fun with it, the easier it will get. In the meantime, don't worry about it, just play!!! :D
