Cassie Stephens: Taking my Creative Vitamins

Right here lately I’ve been in a bit of a artistic funk and I have not felt excited or fascinated in pursuing my common artistic stores. I enjoy to sew funky apparel to put on and have an infinite amount of money of jobs in various phases in my stitching space but each time I go in there, I just search all around and experience…fatigued. Is it that time of the yr? While, if I’m being straightforward, this sensation of disinterest has been likely on for a while (gee, I ponder why) and it’s setting up to have an impact on my teaching as very well. Yep, I just stated that out loud. 

I know it really is not a good spot to be so I am hoping to do some thing about it. I learned a very long time back that beating myself up and shaming myself about matters just does not perform. It only tends to make me feel even worse. So rather of experience poorly about not stitching, I resolved to dry some thing thoroughly diverse: portray. 

I obtained out an outdated round frame observed at the thrift retailer from my stash as very well as some blank cards. I painted a dotted and flowery structure on the frame just for fun…but then I had a large amount of paint still left more than on my palette. So I kinda went nuts and begun portray and printing on the cards. I received definitely excited about all of the shades and textures I made. Then I set up a tiny still lifestyle and drew and painted it on one of the playing cards. 

I considered I would just commence building one particular painting an evening right before mattress. I’ve been retaining them quick so I take pleasure in the method but…some of them I have slowed down and taken my time on. 

I’ve been sharing the system on each TikTok and Instagram but received some requests for a extended video of the system. I also experienced somebody mention seeking to share a online video with her superior university pupils. So I hope the just one I produced allows. For me, the important has been just making the most of the system, keeping the paintings smaller so I can do them in just one sitting down, utilizing colours I like and making a easy however life.

I have a great deal of random items from the thrift store that have been enjoyment to paint. 

I’m not gonna say I sense so much greater now or that I’m treated of my funk…I am not. But at the very least I can say that I did at minimum just one thing I’m proud of at the conclusion of the working day. Taking the time to create is some thing we creative kinds have to do. Sharing my swift movies would seem to have gotten some other people making way too and that tends to make me so content.
