How are you doing? How was your week? Hope all is well.
What is happening in the world???
I find the news to be very depressing. All kinds of crazy stuff happening. And if that’t not enough people take the time to create fake news(!). Unbelievable. It just blows my mind. Everybody should start a creative hobby like painting or drawing and more like that. That would keep them busy.
For me it helps take my mind off the depressing world problems. And it seems I finally found my creative peace. No more stressing about my art not being pretty enough or artsy enough and not at all like her/his art. It finally registered in my mind that stressing about what my art looks like defies the whole purpose of making art to relax. Right! Mayor aha moment for me LOL
So take it from me (and I am a terrible perfectionist) and just have fun with it. Splash paint on a canvas or on paper and see where it goes. If it doesn’t go anywhere or if you don’t like it you can always throw it out or cut it up and use the pieces in a new painting or gesso over it and start over. Sometimes putting it to the side and coming back to it later helps too. But just paint and draw and letter or whatever it is you do and have fun.
My aha moment inspired me to design a fun new TN insert. It’s B6 size and blank and undated. I made it like this because I like to have the freedom to stamp, add stickers, and even paint in my planners. And this blank (canvas) insert doesn’t constrict my artistic freedom.
Tonight I’m going to design a few cover pages that I will add to the Free Resources Library. Keep an eye out for those and don’t forget to subscribe to get access to them.
Have an amazing weekend and allow yourself some artsy time!
