It avoids absolutes, certainties, over-robust definitions, solace.
It offers places, interstices, where objects and people meet.
It is unstable, contingent.
It is about experience. It is about desire.
However it turns out, it is beautiful.
Practice builds experience. This has happened to me a couple of occasions, for various reasons. (I may have over-mixed, taken too long, or the child may not be willing, or scared) Now, I laugh, and make another appointment. These things happen. Why do you think a doctor calls his profession a practice… scary thought! It’s the same with crafting. Each thing that may go wrong could be a discovery to something fantastic.
I had to go through many stages while developing the method, and then the kits. I made loads of mistakes, and still do. Those mistakes often have brought me to the next stage of development in my crafting, and experience.
I encourage you to keep at it. The rewards are fantastic, and they create memories. When it does work out 100%, it’s a wow experience, which made it all worthwhile.
I am encouraged by the enthusiasm of all the people involved.
Remember, the key to all of this is having fun, creating memories, and using your imagination. When you get a world-class art piece out of it, it will be a bonus.
