bead soup

I've been working on my bead soup.  Got it almost finished and don't like what I have.  Trying to figure out what to do.  I know I am probably my biggest critic, but, it just doesn't look right to me..... Ack! do I start all over or just keep going? Am I the only one that does this or is it an artistic thing???

  1. I don't think you will find a single creative soul who can look at his/her own work with detachment, Annette. Do one thing: make a list of what you DO like about your piece(s) and what specific aspects or sections you would improve. It may help you to be a little more objective. Right now you probably feel emotional attachment toward what you have created (or not... I usually do!) It is absolutely normal and expected. With practice you can learn to step back and consider more dispassionately. Sometimes taking a few photos and critiquing THEM rather than the object can help.
