Yesterday was Monday.
Monday comes around REALLY quickly!
It was grey, wet, freezing and I did not want to leave my flannelette sheets in the morning! I was also completely uninspired, distracted by other things happening in my life, frustrated that everything I do seems to take soooooooooo long to get done & generally....stroppy!
All the inspirational & encouraging quotes floating around in the ether kept prodding at my attitude & phrases like 'just do it' & 'you have to show up' were guilt tripping me into AT LEAST making an effort.
So I did.
I donned my purple ugg boots, went out into the garden & took some photos of my dark purple salvia before the rain came in again.
Grump, grump, grumble grump!!
I pulled my self together & just made do with what I had. Then I made a START!
And I wasn't happy. It was too heavy in the base & the black didnt relate to the buds & flower. The black & white fabric perfectly replicates the salvia's leaf pattern, which is why I wanted to use it. Sigh! What was I going to do to try & get a more cohesive balance.
It still needed something.
This is where I left it, as the day had slipped rapidly away & I needed to get on with other tasks.
This is not an outcome that excites me.
However, what I did with it next does! Using my mobile phone and a handy little app called 'Layout', this boring little piece inspired by salvia became.....
Goodbye Mrs Stroppy! I am much h-APP-ier!!
