Put your best ART forward, the rest will follow!

Just a quickie Show & Tell for today... In my last post I mentioned an AFA swap for Two Sleeve Art Dolls that I have found difficult to muster up any inspiration for completing! I have made them in the past for other swaps but to be honest they have always been a huge challenge for me... Faces & Figures are definitely not my forte but I keep trying to stretch myself by stepping out of my comfort zone in hopes that someday I will improve!! As they say, "Rome wasn't built in a day" but then again, they also say "Don't beat a dead horse!" (by the way, just who are "they" that know so much!!) 

Finally, I came up with my plan... compromise, it seemed the only way to get past this immediate creative block! I opted to do what I do best, with an added face... meet my "Janoodlettes" (sounds like they could actually be back-up singers, maybe even for Lady Gaga)  or possibly they are "Cocoon Coquettes" (wrapped up tight, just waiting to emerge in all of their glory)... there's one thing that I have learned as an artist; no matter what you intended to create, there is no guarantee anyone else sees it the same way and that's just fine with me!

To "ART" each day, 
keeps the Doctor away!!

Until next time, Blessings to you all!!
