All or nothing

It has seemed a bit like that recently; all or nothing. Over the weekend it felt like every creative cell in my body had been removed and replaced with frustration. I sat at my desk trying to force myself to do some work but decided after doing very little, to get up and do something else productive (like washing).
But yesterday I couldn't wait to get home and finish something I had half-arse started on Sunday with absoutley no plan for what it was going to be.
After all that work this is what I ended up with:

I was flicking through some old Cosmo & Cleo magazines from years ago and came across this beatiful photo of Scarlett Johansson with a few words that really spoke to me. "...accomplish something more..."

A close up of the wonderful yarn(?) i attached at the bottom of the second board

Some beads & wire i had left over from my amature jewelry making days.
I used: recycled cardboard, gesso, acrylic paint, brown paper, beads, jewelry wire, magazine cut out,  crop-a-dile, eyelets, pliers, graph paper, handmade paper, modpodge...and probably other bits an pieces too that i cant remember :)

I am so happy with how this turned out - it was a good bit of inspiration and experimentation. I do keep reminding myself to shoot for the moon these days, and i keep landing among the stars which is awesome! I try not to get disheartened if something doesn't go to plan (like doing work when i "need" to) and to not get stressed out over it, which i am prone to.

Lastly I thought I would share something that I know has been floating around cyberspace for quite a while now, but i came across agian today. It makes you appreciate what you have and how big the world really is (not to mention that it is totaly amazing design and typography!!)
