Day 2 of my challenge to spend a minimum of two hours in my art studio, daily (5 days a week). Today it was difficult getting into the studio. Perhaps it was because it's a Monday! Although I went into the studio on Saturday and Sunday to do my Daily Journal Pages, I don't consider that time as part of my Studio Time Challenge. Maybe that's a little odd, but I set this challenge up to do more than my pages, to do other art work and jewelry. Did my page, but no other artwork. I did finish a custom oriel. But it seemed to take forever to complete and package up. I did spend a lot of time looking through images, ribbons, straightening up, and then messing up again! Could it have gone any faster? Maybe if I wasn't "fighting" the whole time. I am hoping that this internal fight with myself will get fainter in the month ahead. That it will be easier to jump into the next thing. I suspect I already know how to do it....In the photo I took today I show a little corner vignette in my studio: two ornaments I made a couple of years ago; one of my box assemblages, an antique shaving brush, a hand-carved bear, a teeny tiny vintage paper cutter, and an impromptu collage created a few days ago. The bottom photo is a shot of my packaging prep for the custom...lots of ribbon choices.
