Day 355 : Christmas Trees

Day 355 : Christmas Trees

Hmmm. The idea was quite good - but this did not go well. The texture of the foil didn't work, the knots for lights too big, the tree stems hard to see - but I like the idea. Might have to try a version in finer threads to see if I can make it work better.

I could have started again and been a bit late posting tonight. But I thought that it might be a good opportunity to talk about the not-so-good creations. It doesn't always work, that's the way it goes. Sometimes you learn that it will never work (so it is probably best to cut off the threads and reuse the mould 😉 ) and sometimes you can treat it as a 'sketch'. Something to inspire you to create again, better, and learning from what didn't work. 

Onwards to Monday!
