Another goal was to step outside my creative comfort zone. I haven't really worked on this one much this year and I am OK with that. I needed the familiar and comfortable in creating this year. The familiar and comfortable helps in healing. I still need the familiar and comfortable but this evening I was ready to go a little beyond the comfortable!
Gingersnaps Creations Challenge #59 is "Fairies". The only fairy stamps I have are Tinkerbell. Now don't get me wrong I like Tink and there is nothing wrong with her. I was just not in the mood to make something with Tink. I have been contemplating this challenge for some time, trying to do decide what I was going to create without buying a new stamp. I perused my stamp collection and the closest I could come to a person/fairy was this:
In these jars one never knows what one will find, it's always fun to see what's in them. It could be a pair of wings , it could be pearls or game spinners or just about any little thing I have in my studio that did not get put away properly or maybe there were only one or two of whatever left so, I add them to the jars. There's not any differences in the jars other than their names.
See, like I said, always an adventure when looking in the jars. Then I raided the bins I inherited from my mom and found a couple of small drapery hooks and some other type of hook. Then I "threw it all together", added some, ink, fibers, a few jewels and my fairy was created. She is definitely not my "normal" but I am quite proud of her!
Here she is, out on a limb!
I am not sure what I am going to do with her, for right now she is sitting on a bottle next to my monitor. I think I will keep there for the time being reminding, it's not was so bad stepping outside your creative comfort zone! What was your last project outside your zone?
