These past weeks I have been working on some recipe sheets.
After some layout sketches on a notebook I decided to give it a go.
For a few days now, it just didn’t feel right. I was almost done with the frames, but….. something…. you know, something just wasn’t working well.
I stared at it, and stared and stared some more – just to make sure! 😀 – and decided I needed to restart.
And so I did.
SUCH A RELIEF!
I went way overboard with the first one and was aiming for something much simpler and calmer – the last one was too busy – but took me a while to realize I was aiming for that serene mode.
So here we have, a super-simple but much more meaningful frame:
Playing around with it and finishing something more in line with what I wanted made me really happy! Reaaally happy!
It reminded me of Violet Leyman’s post about your art resonating with yourself first and foremost. It is a very practical yet beautiful post!
Go take a peek at it 🙂 It is not easy to work with what we don’t like. This is why we started doing all this in the first place: it is something that we like to do.
Our work flows easier if we focus on what we actually like to do.
All so true and obvious yet we need to remind ourselves of that everyday.
So yeah, don’t miss her post! —–> Joy
In case you don’t have time to go all the way over there to read what she is talking about, I will leave you here with her sentence that sums it all:
Joy is highly attractive.
mmmmmmm doesn’t that sounds so rich, cozy, fuzzy, warm and beautiful? 🙂
Hope you all are having a great Friday!
See you soon! ❤
