I'm having a bit of an enthusiasm for all things Royal of late. Not sure where it's come from but I'm kinda glad it's here. Laid up with a bad back at the moment so can't do much apart from craft, in short bursts only. But, I started playing around with this idea late yesterday and couldn't leave it alone. Wasn't at all what I'd started out intending to do, but I enjoyed watching her evolve before me. I'm fascinated by the way that happens. Start out with quite a firm idea, which then gets replaced by something else entirely. In fact, the whole creative process fascinates me - where the idea originates from, how we go about executing it, how it changes and most importantly of all, how the finished piece makes us feel. And, what's even more fascinating is how the process is so very different for each of us. So very unique and personal. I'd love to hear about how it happens for you ....? I would like to tip my hat here to Jan of JansArtyAtcJourney who sent me the most gorgeous royal atc (see earlier post). I used Jans piece as inspiration for mine altho the end result is entirely different - Thanks Jan. I don't think I will ever be able to do pretty despite all my efforts!
