Blame it on January perhaps, but I suddenly can't get out of my own way.
The queen of productivity, she who can churn out twenty postcards in an evening, suddenly can't finish a damn thing.
I can start lots of things. Heck yeah.
But nothing feels done.
I'm way up inside my head and over thinking everything.
Yesterday was a snow day here, and also my first day back among the living after a bout with strep. I forced myself to collect my pile of half finished collages and either finish or declare them "good enough." And so I bring you collages #10-21 of my 365 in 2013 challenge.
I've been doing a lot with brown and blue lately. I kind of hate the first two, but I really like the third.
I still had a lot of these painted postcard backgrounds lying around from a creativity spree months ago, so I added a few more elements and counted them as new collages. (I see now that the gel medium hadn't totally dried when I impatiently scanned it. There's not actually white blobs in the black fibers.)
Another of those backgrounds was used as the first of my three collages for the Mail Me Some Art Collage Sheet Challenge. (I posted a collage sheet and challenged everyone to make postcards using those images)
After cleaning up so many piles, I got a little giddy and made this wonderfully warped series.
With that last one I might have laughed myself right out of my funk. Maybe I can finally see my way clear to sending out some mail!
