Tuesday Tip

Angela Porter Mandala 17 April 2018 My #tuesdaytip is to experiment, and not be afraid to make a mess of things.

If things don’t turn out as you’d like, learn from them.

Question what you like and why you don’t like bits.

Ask yourself if there’s anything you can do to fix what you don’t like or work with what you don’t like.

Sometimes it helps to put what you’re not happy with to one side for a goodly while and come back to it with fresh eyes.  Often, what you think is a mess up is actually a nice part, even if it doesn’t fit in with the whole and could be useful in a different project.

Think of these areas as creative opportunities, experiences you can learn and grow from.

If you’re not going to use your creation as a finished piece, write notes on it about what you like and why you like it, what you don’t like and why you don’t like it in this piece but consider how you could use it more successfully to your tastes in the future.

Never throw anything out, there is a lot more to learn from your mess ups than from you successes!
