Video: How to overcome perfectionism
In this video, Kelly begins a creatively inspired design made from ingredients from her garden. While she is purposefully designing something unique and professional, she is allowing herself freedom in expression - both in design and in color - as she chooses her ingredients and places each bloom. You can find the entire video and Kelly’s completed arrangement in the Team Flower Creating Inspired Designs Class.
When you’re practicing your creativity, you must let go of perfectionism and mitigate the pressure you put on yourself to design something you deem “worthy.” Allowing yourself to take photos of an arrangement that may seem somewhat odd or unfinished brings about so much freedom and refreshment! Freedom is necessary for creativity, so clear your mind before you begin your own creatively inspired design.
Tips on Designing Creatively
Use flowers in a different way than how you would normally use them.
Choose a color palette that is consistent with the season around you.
There is always more than one way to get to a complete design. Don’t put yourself in a box!
Be open to your arrangement taking a turn in the midst of creating! Let the ingredients speak to you as you go.
