The beginning of the autumn always reminds me of going back to school, fresh starts. It's kind of a second new year.
I made some creative resolutions at the start of the year, so maybe this is a good time to re-visit them and see how I'm doing!
This is what I wanted to do creatively this year...
1. Try encaustic art (painting with wax) -
Success! This is my first effort, done with collage elements, beeswax and a travel iron!! I think it'll take a while to get the hang of properly but it's great fun and I'll definitely do more!
2. I'd like to experiment more with texture/fabric/stitch in my art
Hm... I think there are definitely some elements of that I've brought into my work this year. I'm going to give myself a tick for that one!
3. I'd like to look further into wholesale accounts for my wooden heartsWell, not yet - though I do have a couple of opportunities in the concept stage at the moment.
