My Creative Space - Trying to Design

I'm playing along with Kirsty's My Creative Space this week. 
Visit Kootoyoo to join in or to see more spaces.

This week I've been procrastinating a lot. I haven't been sewing, I haven't been crocheting, I've done a bit of painting/drawing, but mostly I've been faffing about trying to decide on an Atomic design to burn a screen.

I've realised... 
(a) my blocks are falling apart and I just can't keep individually block printing the design each time (my poor thumbs!), and 
(b) that each time I block print the design it's all spur of the moment whimsy regarding placement... no two are the same!

So, I'm trying to decide on a final design... it's not going well ;)


So I've been amusing myself with making triangle patterns... 



Happy Creative Space everyone! I hope you've been more creative than me! ;)


I have a giveaway (below) too, if you're interested...

O if it was all only so easy as the playing around part. I do like your triangle arrangements though. Cherrie

popping on over from kootoyoo. First time here to your blog and I have to say I love your designs. They are so unique. Off to look more!

Ooh, I like the little triangled butterflies/moths in the bottom shots!
The are angles are narrower.
(we've been discussing angles in homework this week!)xx

A screen, how exciting! I'm sure you'll be hooked. Looks like a great way to test different designs :-)

Love the way you've cut those pieces up to move around in your process of deciding on the final design.

Deccision making is terrible! Ponder ponder ponder - it sounds so familiar! The righ design will pop up eventually - most likely when you're fed up with it all! LOL :)

Your triangles look fun. Sometimes I need that, time away from what I'm working on. That's when the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. I'd say your Atomic design is well on it's way. : )

Bottom left triangles is working for me. I love the playing part- the limbo where ideas begin to grow. Good luck!

Blueberry Park said...

you've certainly been amusing me...I like! Top left and bottom right jump out at me in particular x

Tania said...

Is it any consolation that when it comes to burning screens I am always FROZEN by indecision? Approximately seventeen fabric designs in my head but all requiring a screen to move further, so it never ever happens. AAARGH!

Cindy said...

Yes! Loving the triangles...

Cath @ chunkychooky said...

what is burning screens? * scrathcing head* is that a dumb question? Why does everyone know what you are talking about 'cept me???

Cath @ chunkychooky said...

I meant * scratching head*
jeeeez

procrastinating or not it always seems like you keep one eye open and one arm active during the night with everything you accomplish! i am always having pleasure-filled chills when i visit and see the newness happening in your nook. ♥

Oh, that kind of frustration aint good, but I love the fact that procrastination for you is a still such a creative pursuit (my version usually ends up lying horizontally doing nothing!). All the very best with working it out (and I do like that each one is individual). Also love the triangle studies... you can never go wrong with this!

I can get scattered like that too, can be so frustrating! I like the look of all you've got going, though.

Funny how creativity can ebb and flow. I've got more ideas than time these days.... Happy weekend!
