One Layerblank

Overwhelmed by the rush of ideas that I am feverishly sketching each day. I have enough supplies just never enough time for all that needs to come out of my head. I'm having a very hard time finishing anything because soon after getting into one project I get a new idea that I feel I must start on right away.

And now I am seriously feeling quite overwhelmed as I stare at my stacks of paper. Half of them have one layer, the other half are blank and are being saved for later. I'm not going to print on it all right away maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of it which is still a lot! The rest will be used as a background color for other colors. It is getting close to midnight on Wednesday and therefor way past my bedtime. Yet I really want to bring out my ink and start printing layer two, but I know that is a bad idea. Getting out ink is a bit of a time commitment, time that I should be spending sleeping. Which haven't been doing enough of lately. I guess you could say I have been feeling a little high which is all great except for the crash that comes later. And it always comes. Especially if I don't sleep and let this continue.

Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to finish some pieces for Friday. That is my big goal.

Now I am off to bed. I don't want to, but I have to.

I love that layer of goldenrod yellow! So excited to see what happens with the next layers!

And by all means, get some rest, even though that sounds like an impossible demand.

I know that rush of ideas feeling well. I wish I had time to make all the wonderful creatures that I dream up. I've finally devoted a notebook to all these idea. I keep it with me always and write them down as I think of them. Then when I have time or need an idea I can go back and read them over.
