There's always issues to overcome with this whole art thing. One of them for me lately goes back to a core value of mine. Over the last few years I've become a minimalist. I've simplified lots of things but most especially my home. I like living with less stuff. I spend less. I have less to maintain and less to clean. I don't like having a lot of stuff on my shelves or my wall. One of the questions I have for myself is this...if I'm making a lot of art, aren't I just creating clutter for myself? And then if I sell it, am I passing on that clutter to someone else? Of course, beautiful art isn't clutter but let's get real: not everything one makes is beautiful. I'm always thinking of ways that I can recycle and reuse even with my art. [I paint over paintings all the time which sometimes drives my family nuts!] I'm always thinking about ways I might be able to use my art in different ways that doesn't add clutter to my home. Yesterday when I put together the twelve days illustrations, I was looking for how I might use it. One thing I came up with was making these little gift tags.
If that's something you could use, you can download them here. I printed mine out on white card stock and trimmed along the lines with scissors.
