S is for Siren...


I gave myself permission to just LET GO today. I only had a very limited amount of time in the studio today while the wee B napped. This is my piece for Leticia's Alphabetica book. I started out doing N is for Nest but somehow that mermaid ended up on there and M was taken so S for Siren it became. I told myself to just start sticking stuff on there and go for it. If I hated it I could toss it since I did it seperate from the actual book and sewed it on to the page afterwards. There were parts that didn't work that were covered up but most of the time I found that if I just didn't second guess myself it would work ok. I need to practice getting myself in this frame of mind more often because I am always more pleased with my results when I can manage.

Happy to be done with this one way before deadline. Cheers!

  1. I love it! It's very inspirational, especially how you just went for it! I'm enjoying reading your blog. I am going through a dry spell artistically. Hopefully that will change soon.
