What do you do when you're so flooded by ideas that you can't decide which direction to go in? I've found myself floundering lately on my printable fairy party, just for that reason. I find myself overwhelmed with clashing concepts: cute or woodsy, bohemian or dainty? I could easily see a fairy party going in any one of those directions, couldn't you? So I'm designing, but it's basically like fighting myself every step of the way without a single solid concept to work from.
I'm not really one to make mood boards, but I thought finding a few inspirational images might help streamline my creative process. So, Etsy to the rescue! There is never a shortage of truly inspiring creations on that site.
Aren't these images just darling? I think they all have just the right amount of whimsy and cuteness to befit a fairy-themed party, without being too over-the-top "cutesy" or alternately, too "woodland fae," if you know what I mean. Haha, maybe I'm overthinking all of this. I just want my first printable party to be perfect! I'm sure you crafty, creative folks out there know how hard it is to just let go and allow yourself the freedom to create without perfectionism impeding on the process.
Any thoughts? How does your creative process begin?
