Exploring the "what ifs"


Burlap-flowers-mixed-media-canvas by Yvonne Yam for The Crafters Workshop

It is easy to slip into one's comfort zone and just work with elements that one is accustomed to. I, however,  love to make things "difficult" for myself by continually pushing boundaries and exploring the "what ifs". *winks*


Like working on a different colour palette. Or picking out the "core" elements and then exploring ways to tie a design together. "Forcing" yourself to do just one thing different each time you work on a project is a great way to grow artistically. :)


Hope you find time this busy season to nourish your artistic soul. Happy weekend my friends! :)

P/s: This mixed media canvas was created for The Crafter's Workshop.

Sooooo...was it the flowers! Or the colours? What was it that you don't feel comfortable with????? I LOVE the black flowers. I'd find them VERY hard to a/ Make & b/ Use. However. They look sooo 'like' you, that I doubt it was this, Maybe the green with black? Hmmmnnnnn....rambling. Need food to function....!!!!!!!!
