Journal Day 142- Unused inspiration

As I mentioned yesterday, I can see a couple of ways in which I could have done this project differently, and it is in plain contrast to how I am currently doing it.

At the moment everything I am doing is on a computer. I am designing and creating digitally. I chose to eliminate any chance for possible time wasting or mistakes than can often come from working by hand in the print room. It is hugely time consuming and I felt that I want to be able to quickly and efficiently experiment with the patterns and saw that doing it digitally would allow me to see a range of designs in seconds or minutes rather than days, allowing me to achieve much more.

However when I was browsing through my pinterest I found these:

 and thought again about how I could have done so much work with paint, colour and textures. I would have almost ignored the birds, or would have created quite abstract bird shapes or perhaps just used bird outlines, all of which I would have liked but do not feel confident doing. It would have been a hugely experimental project, something I feel would have been more appropriate for part 2 of this course. At this stage I want to be able to create quality work and will save the emotional experimentation for my personal time :). Maybe one day...!
