Maverick Craftwork

I started a project that is a wee bit outside the norm for me. I usually make things that are useful in some way, as opposed to "just because it's awesome". There is something downright practical about me and making. That doesn't mean I don't get carried away and color outside the lines from time to time. I have ideas and they swim around in my mind occasionally making a big splash. Well, it was about time I paid attention and did something about it. I went maverick!

Not only did I go maverick but, I went multi-medium! I haven't been overly cautious, I have not plotted it all out down to the last detail, and I have let the piece guide me along. There have been messes, mistakes, wonk, and an undoing or two. Guess what, I'm loving it!

It's almost finished, I think. I'll be sure and show you when it's done. For now, I am just going to enjoy this new found freedom of expression.

Have a maverick day my friends!

Ooh, fun! I agree that it's good to step outside the 'useful' box every now and then, and I can't wait to see the results. Thanks for your comment - I'm getting on pretty quickly with my 'project', mainly beccause it involves no sewing!

Really nice project! I loved it! I've been thinking about stencils lately. Yesterday I've tried a bit with freezer paper and it worked just fine. Ideas are popping and I can't wait to do something cool. Going maverick is the way to go!
