This is intended for mixed media collage makers but I think it applies to a lot of artistic endeavors to some degree or another.

I'm a firm beleiver in the "walk away" tip --- Many of my BJP pieces have resulted becasue I let them stew for a while before starting (and finishing) them... I guess my brain works on them while I do other, unrelated things! (I used to do this when I had to write a report as well... worked every time and saved on rewrites!)

I didn't see anything there but items for sale. Was there a special link that you wanted us to look at?

Ooops. Wrong link! This is an issue I have sometimes ... When I copy, or THINK I copy, the previous link seems to still be in the paste slot! Sorry... I'll find the right one and fix that! Ok, new link pasted in from my iPad. Hope that works...

Somethings are ready to hatch when you first start them! I have done this many times. Unfortunately it might be in the middle of the night! I needed to design a woman priest's vestment for her ordination. I was in England when it suddenly came to me in the middle of the night. All I had was an envelope to draw a sketch on but that is what I used. Better to do that than to miss the design which turned out quite nice!
