This is the third installment in a series, Find Your Creative Voice, based on the article 10 Questions that Will Help You Find Your Voice over at Accidental Creative, because it’s so important to find your voice when building a comfortable nest, be it a one room apartment or a sprawling mansion. I will be answering the questions that author Todd Henry has posed, and I hope that you will answer them too.
Question 3 :: What have you mastered?
Mastery. Now we’re getting to the meat and potatoes.
I have mastered the unique ability to let a home speak to me and to design it accoringly. To take the hints given to me by the fixed assets of a home and add complimentary design.
And on a smaller scale, i have mastered the ability to move decorative elements around, to edit a vignette – picture the movements of a magician playing a shell game – and to make that grouping of elements sing.
I have also mastered the ability to bring together unique, and often dissimilar, items together to create an interesting artistic display.
To be honest, it’s difficult to put into words what I think that I have mastered. I was raised in an era that sharing mastery of something is tantamount to bragging. But I said it anyway and hope that you will also get all introspective and braggy and discover and share your special talents.
What have you mastered?
Feel free to start a dialogue on the subject of creativity and what you have mastered in the comments and on the Homage Style Facebook page.
