I have been slowly working on this spread for almost two weeks. I realized it's because I was giving it a lot of weight in my head. The photo is my great-grandmother, and I think I was wanting to make this so very perfect because of that importance. Maybe I should have used a random photo from the internet!
Sometimes when something is important it freezes me up. That's another thing I think I need to spend more time with. There's a message there and some digging to do.

It's true what you say, I feel it sometimes myself. Random photo, magazine photo, etc no problems, but something that means something to you, big problem and I agonise over those pages sometimes too. I really like what you've done, she looks very regal Elle xx
Thank you! I try to tell myself it's all just paper, the same paper. But what's on it makes a difference.
I do the same thing, even to the point of having a half finished spread of my mother (who died when I was young) in a journal I was working in last year. I don't know if I'll ever finish it.
I get that. I think sometimes we just have to say "finished enough" and go on.
Finished enough is definitely a thing, especially if we're creating for the sake of process over product. I love your piece!
Thank you! I have to remind myself that just doing it for the process is fine. I can get hung up on needing to make a "finished piece."
