When I over plan projects I not only lose spontaneity but I lose the joy of the process. On the other hand, the slap dash, hodge podge and mish mash of 'just get 'er done' leaves me cold. I am determined to find a way that doesn't tie me up in knots.
Last week's penciled entries had a common thread. My dearie! My few prepositioned ephemera are more a hindrance than a help so I won't do that anymore. But I found some photos that complimented the theme. Note to self - pay attention to orientation for these narrow spaces.
I pulled some materials that complimented the theme. Everything is somewhat tied together. I do like the constraints that kinda hem my choices in. I think less will be more as I consider design options. I can always go rooting in the stash for the perfect bow!
This is tied awfully tight but I feel like this way of working gives purpose to my pages. It is heading me in the direction I want to go as I explore my design style and the direction I want my blogging to take. I just need to have one focal point and some quieter support.
I do have previous pages to practice on. I am also sorting my embellishments and supplies for greater usefulness. I need to speed up the process. This can be a learning tool but not something I want to devote too much time doing.
Now I just need to KISS everything a bit or limit all the stuff that happens in my week! lol
