I wish I had the ability to just think up something and make it come to life. Instead I end up looking up ideas then playing with them to figure out something I can do or that works for what I want.
An example is me looking up a scroll pattern so I can finish one of the bathroom art projects. It isn’t like a swirly scroll should be all that hard to draw, but the idea of free handing it scares me! What if it looks bad when I do it?
The bathroom art projects as a whole are also another example of seeing something online and using that idea.
I wish I could make myself do things more randomly and not in patterns or symmetrically. Visually I *love* the look of random things, like odds and ends placed helter skelter on a shelf, but when I go to putting things on the shelf they are always in groups of two or threes or end up symmetrical or something like that.
I think I’d love a distressed finish on my coffee table, but I don’t think I would be able to do it because I afraid I’ll get wrapped up in symmetry and trying to make it all ‘match’.
I wish every now and then, that my brain worked differently, and that I could be completely creative like others are. I just don’t know how to get it to switch gears.
