OK, I have been struggling with what I consider creative and artistic. It is an inner struggle. So much of what I see in blogs or other places seem so wonderful and I wonder "why can't I do something like that?" It seems I think for something of mine to be considered artistic or creative it should be worthy of hanging in a famous museum which makes it impossible to feel really good about what I make. I can be happy with it, but it is hard to share because I hardly ever feel it is good enough. Years ago, I did not feel this way. I was pleased with what I did and wanted to show it off and give things I made as gifts. One of my cheerleaders has died, and I guess that is part of my problem. So to me, posting some of my things is risky. I am going through the the Joy Diet with Jamie Ridler, and one chapter was risk. You were to do something you found risky, each day. Posting on AEDM will be my risk everyday all month. My wish is that I stop worrying about what others think and get comfortable with what I think, again.
I worked on a Christmas card today. Not sure if I am finished or not. I am thinking it is lacking a little pizzaz. But I am out of time so will think on it. I am working on a snowman in Photoshop Elements to either add to the inside or switch around the outside layout and add him there. I don't like that Christmas doesn't look capitalized, but that is the way the rub on was, so that may change, also.
The other picture is from when I went and painted a swirl on my wall after reading SARK and she said go paint on a wall so I did take that risk (my husband about had a cow) and painted on my studio wall!
