When an Experiment Goes Awry

When an Experiment Goes Awry

Some times when you play with a new art medium you love what you create simply because its so fun and new. Other times you create something that you absolutely hate. I rarely create a piece of art that I can’t find any redeeming quality in but this small piece managed to do it.

This was created using Wonder Under Fusible Web, which is a cool mesh that melts and sticks to things when you iron it. I was working with a group of friends and we had a lot of options. I made two right before this one that I liked, that are now in a frame, and thinking I had the hang of it I created this one.

I got a little stuck on the butterfly. I really liked it but had a hard time finding things I liked to go with it. I kinda just threw a few things together and hoped for the best. It was awful, so I tried adding more things (which has saved me in other mediums such as painting and decoupage). That however made it worse.

I am excited to say that now this piece has been archived on my blog I can throw it away guilt free. What do you do with pieces you create that you hate? Feel free to share in the comments.
