You see, I was one of the lucky vendors to be in a Lollishop ad for the upcoming Spring issue of "Somerset Studios", the theme is beach/mermaid. Well...for whatever reason, I experienced the absolute worst "creative block", in the history of my creative blocks! lol! For the life of me, I couldn't find inspiration if it was right in front of me for a beach project!
Generally, when I feel like creating, I just wander into my studio. Then as I sit and stare at the piles and piles of materials in every corner and shelf, usually something jumps out at me and an idea is born. I think I put so much pressure on myself this time, when I knew it had to be beachy, that my brain turned to mush! tee hee..
After putting this project off for weeks, I was getting down to the wire, there was a deadline for a photo of the project and I was cutting it close, 3 days left...eeeeeeek! The morning I knew there was no time left to procrastinate, I wearily pulled my "slug like body" into the kitchen to prepare the strongest coffee, in hopes that it would jolt a beach theme from my brain. I was low on coffee filters and what few I had were a bit stretched out from my haphazard way of tossing them back into the cupboard. As I tried to reshape one for the coffee pot, I had a revelation... Hey, this one "kind of" looks like a clam shell! Voila!!! Just when you least expect it, an idea appears!! LOL!!
So, a short story turned very long, here is my rendition of the beach theme, introducing...
Now, as "Pearl" rests upon her sweet bed, I'll go back to my studio and wait for new inspiration...
Have a perfect week my friends! Thanks oodles for stopping by~ xoxo
