work (experience) and play

I have been doing a lot of learning this week.
And what a lovely week it has been.

I have been encouraged to add a little bit of 'play' into my work, whether it's in ripping things up, drawing with my left hand, creating layers and textures or embracing wonky lines and pritt stick.  Why?

'What happens in life is that we become attached to doing "what works" or what is comfortable.  We get stuck in a comfort "habit".  This is fine if we want to have the same outcome over and over, but if we want to create something new we must always venture into the unknown.'  Keri Smith

  4. Hi Lucy!
    I've only just see this comment, which is rubbish I know!
    Thanks for your kind words - yes, I did a week's placement with a card design studio in Bath. Sadly not yours! Perhaps a possibility for the future...! :)
