Exploring Open-Ended Creativity

Pop on over to Whip Up today. I’m guest blogging about exploring open-ended creativity as part of Kathreen’s Creative Process guest series. I’m so excited to be a part of it. This embroidery hoop holds a recent project I did completely free-form.

In the post, I write about how challenging it can be to create with a blank slate. I tend to avoid it, do you? Most of the creating I do is narrow and defined, and comes super easily to me. It is the result of solving a particular problem. Starting with nothing–a blank canvas, empty fabric, a clean piece of paper–is more about being an artist. It is something I’ve been driven to do more of, though it scares me. Head on over to Whip Up and check it out. Let me know what you think. What are your experiences?

I think its good for all of us to face that challenge. Dive in!
