I am my own worst critic. I usually end up changing things at the last minute. Hey, if you aren’t happy with something, erase it, tear it up, burn it, paint it black…start over! I started with this…
I taped off a tree branch with washi tape and inked over it with distress inks. I spent a good hour painting the embossed cloissone egg stamps with perfect pearls and water. THEN I didn’t like that the eggs blended into the background. So, I highlighted with a black pen. NOOOO!!! I should never do things when I am tired. I got mad, cut all the eggs out (and the tree branch) and slept on it. Fresh eyes always make better decisions.
I’m glad I didn’t crumple everything up and throw it away! Whew! The soft colors remind me of the illustrations in Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit. I loved that book! (I still do!)
Do more of what makes you happy!
