I've been trying to get myself "un-stuck" creatively.
Some people call on a "muse."
This is what I think: there are seasons and you gotta work with it.
I've knitted a sweater for my little girl, thrown 2 birthday parties, made 2 "from scratch" cakes, painted a bedroom, gotten the kids back into a school routine, started writing in my journal again .... definitely a very productive time .... just not any art stuff.
Today I'm turning to Mixed Media Monday (one of my favorite weekly challenge blogs).
It's definitely NOT Monday .... but I was inspired by their prompt.
In fact the inspiration came to me in the middle of the night - usually my inspiration time - it's very much like simply having a dream.
I imagined myself:
Assembling all of my collected "street and sidewalk" bottle caps from the summer.
Hammering them nice and flat.
Piercing holes in the edges to thread wire through and connect them.
And then .... I don't know what.
It will be an ongoing project.
What knitters fondly call WIP's (works in progress).
A little bit at a time - in the midst of life.
It's that kind of a season right now and I gotta work with it :)
15 bottle caps collected this summer
Found here in Washington and in Eastern Australia
This one is my favorite.
Just wondering if the beer was any good ....
