Always Make New Mistakes...
A very clever lady, Maureen called me back in December wanting a custom window done. Her favorite saying/words to live by are "Always Make New Mistakes." Pretty inspiring don't you think? For me, I take it as a challenge to try new things. Not worry about making mistakes, and if I do, make sure I don't make the same one twice! As for inspiration, she had seen one of my pieces, "Eat, Drink & Be Merry." (for image, see older post..http://curlyqmosaics.blogspot.com/2010/08/eat-drink-be-merry.html) The piece she wanted had many more letters to create, so it was very tedious and time consuming indeed. I teased her that I would never attempt to make such a piece again. I am glad she ordered it, as it pushed me to create on another level. I am very happy with the way it turned out. I am just grateful that the word wasn't supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! As for the funky paper in the background, don't you just love it! It is specialty paper from a company called Iota. Known for their paper & stationary, they have unleashed an entirely new line...all adorned with their zany, bright patterns. From journals & totes to baby shoes and aprons.
