in my case, i had the terrific heart the art prompt #8, a selection of spray inks and stamps, two entirely fabulous gauche alchemy color kits AND i even knew exactly what i wanted to say.
and i still don't really like the finished page.
(materials: gauche alchemy color kits in pink and red; vintage sheet music and japanese text paper sprayed with glimmer mist and smoosh spritz; heidi swapp floral stamped and painted with gesso; stampin' up distressed edge stamp; staz-on inks; stick-on velcro dots; copic outliner)
the prompt was FEEL LIKE. i wrote about the fact that lately i feel like i am on the verge of something really interesting creatively. and actually, i do believe this page reflects the fact that i've gotten braver, i'm less concerned about making "mistakes" and a lot more interested in process than results. if the price of that is posting a page that didn't entirely gel in the way i hoped, well heck, i guess i'll pay it, and gladly!
on the plus side, i do looooooove the (detachable!) flower, and the bold splashes of color, and the swirl of vintage beads and sequins. on the down side, i wish there was more (or SOME!) white space...the focal image is in the wrong place...and there's just all together too much going on here.
having said all that, i had ♥FUN♥ making this; which afterall, is the main thing. and guess what? on saturday morning, gina will post a brand new prompt and i'll get another chance to do what i love!
can i get a "woohoo"?!
