Meet the newest addition to my sugar garden: The Spiral Rose!
My hope with this new rose was to create a new experience, a new opportunity to fall in love with crafting sugar flowers once again.
To grow as an artist it is essential to look past what it seems impossible, beyond the process and the fear to failure and gift you the possibility to move forward.
There are times where I’ve felt artistically exhausted, to be honest more frequent than not. The creation of this rose was a transformative process for me, deciding to look beyond the possible outcome, for better or worse, and to be willing to go for it in order to discover something new was a huge emotional challenge.
But doing work we are passionate about, leaving the tools on a table after long hours and feeling filled with goodness is what sugar crafting is all about, so I paused, reflected on the past flowers, and how I want to shape the future ones, and gave me permission to fight fo it.
I’m the first one to tell you that I’m a work at progress, nothing is perfected, and nothing will ever be. There will always be room to grow and learn.
Because I doubt I’m alone in this, I hope that you can pause too, and find this class as a source to regain focus and feel determined to try something new.
