At the beginning of the year I decided I wanted to work on my art. I love making cards and different papercrafts but I would love to become more confident with my work. This is a difficult thing as I spent a lot of my time entering challenge after challenge with not much success. There are so many talented crafters out there, so the competition is steep. I would love one day to be on a design team and recognized in publications for my work. It becomes discouraging week after week come up empty on these challenges and for me has really thrown my creative side off. For those who enter and say they don’t care about winning, I find that hard to believe. If that were the case then why would you bother entering? Do you buy a lottery ticket because you felt like throwing a dollar away? No, even though you know the chances are slim, you wanted to win. Beyond winning, it’s so wonderful to be recognized for your work, and I want to get there!
I found a wonderful online class opportunity by Joanne Sharpe here and decided this would be fun! I love her style and am looking forward to learning some new techniques. I have always disliked my handwriting, and am hoping this changes how I look at it. Can’t wait to start and post my progress here!
Card uses all Hero art stamps, colored with copics, distressed edges.
Looking forward to a wonderful weekend, Pixie is better, slept all night last night! Can’t wait to start seeing all the peeks of the new products at CHA! So far I am very excited about the Ranger distressed markers, I can’t wait to have these! I love the distress inks and these will open up some much possibility! Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
