Tuesday is Recycle, Reuse, or Revive

Words to Inspire
"As an artist, what's important is to express what's inside you. Don't worry about being good enough; just do what your heart tells you. Play and don't get stressed out."
---Sarah Fishburn
Mixed Media Artist
Today reach for the most basic tools of your favorite media be it a needle and thread or crayons. Now don't think about it just let your heart guide your hands as you make something. Give yourself at least 30 uninterrupted minutes for this.
When the 30 minutes is over put down your tools and go have a cup of tea or coffee. After you have finished it, go back to what you did and look at it.  Don't think too hard just grab a writing tool and some paper and write down what you see while you look at what you did. Is there anything that stands out and grabs your attention? Do you see any kind of pattern to the work? How does it make you feel? Does it evoke any memories? Write it all down. Walk away and sleep on it. Tomorrow look at it again and read what you wrote. Between the two I'm thinking there will be a message or an idea from your heart. Something you need or need to do.
See you next Tuesday!

BTW this is post 100 Whoo-hoo!
