Inspiration

Whst fo you use?

Feel stuck?

I look at Pinterest, old art journals, old scrapbook pages.

Above is an image from someone I follow on Instagram.

Art books, magazines are also great sources.

I'm also part of www.atcsforall.com and some of the themes are great inspiration.






The theme here is Ghost Children. Being childhood friends that we have lost or lost contact with. This is Jenny and she was diagnosed with Cancer when we were 12. Sadly she didn't make it. Jenny was the first person I knew that had developed cancer. This is one of 4 cards.

Fill Your Life



I love this saying and it really strengthens the reason why I scrapbook.  Living is for enjoying and being in the moment.

A life re-reading the past is a life wasted.

If you have some troubles these can released via a journal or art journal.  I once read a book, a very long time ago and it said if something is troubling you and you can do something to change it, DO IT.  If you are unable to change it, write a letter to yourself.  This letter can be on paper it could also be in wet sand.  The letter could be written in your art journal.  The purpose of the letter is that it goes.  If on paper you can throw it in the bin, place it in an envelope, glue it shut and put it in your journal.  If written in your art journal, paint over it.  You will always remember what you have done but the worry will be gone.

Life is precious so enjoy every moment.

It's Been So Long

Do you have high expectations of your self?  Do you think this stops you from trying/completing things?

I am my own worst enemy. The bar I set myself is so high. It takes me forever to design things. 

I do understand that we are our own greatest enemy. We are so critical of ourselves. 

I just read this great article:


This article talks about putting yourself out there. Really we have nothing to lose. 

“My whole life I’ve done that. I’ve been so hard on myself. I needed my hip replacement because of bone degeneration. I didn’t eat right and ended up here, all because of external judgment that I had internalized. All out of fear.”

Your belief in yourself has to supersede your current state of success.

That’s what Gandhi’s famous words, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world,” really mean.

I did enjoy the article. Click on the link above. 

 


 

 

 

 

You can find me on instagram, Facebook etc. 

I do have a workshop this weekend and there is one on 26th March. 

Thanking you.
