Designs

I had been looking for a way to transfer certain designs to my pots because the style was so amazing....and it's difficult for me to draw them free hand. Some of the styles I like are very symmetrical and it's nearly impossible to recreate it.
So, I found some fabric transfer paper in my sewing junk and it worked great! I was able to transfer some amazing art nouveau designs and am now painting some of them (sorry, no pics yet).
However, as I have been playing around with this technique, I have come to feel as though it's not really "mine". All my other designs have been drawn free hand and inspired by other designs or things I've found in nature. I'll finish the ones I have started but I don't think I'll continue with this technique. Still, I feel like I don't have as many creative inspirations as before. Still plugging away though!

Using technology to create your art doesn't minimize it being your art. However, if the mechanics of creating using technology makes the process feel less creative for you, you have every right to go in a differnt direction. I applaud you exploring new directions. Keep creating, and love what you are doing.

P.S. Sometimes I have explored a process using technology, abandoned it for over a year, and then completed it with the expertise I didn't have previously.
