I am really glad to be back with another installment for our Creative Play series.
If you are just now joining us...skip down a few posts and catch up with us...or just jump in where we are...it is all good! *smile*
Last time we talked about overcoming the paralysis of perfection by asking the question - "What if...?" and letting your natural curiosity take over.
Today's method for helping you find that 5 year old that is hiding inside of you that just wants to CREATE is to spend some time "Creating for No Apparent Reason." Sometimes the pressure of having an end product in mind shuts down our freedom...and when that gets shut down, we are less likely to create our best art. So one of my ways of keeping myself "playful" is to take a few minutes when I may not have time to create a whole project - and use it to just make some backgrounds that I might use on another project....or not!
Have fun watching the video...and then GO PLAY! When you are done, please come back and leave us a link to what you have made down on the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. Have fun - I can't wait to see what you create my dear ARTIST friends!
