Taking Tam's advice and silencing that inner critic....and cupcakes!
I have had a quiet weekend which I love and even managed to do some painting yesterday....something called "Blob Art" which is one of the challenges on Tam's Life Book this month. This sort of messy caper is right up my street although I must say that when I make a messy art page there is a moment or several when I panic and think I am never going to do anything with it. I have to say that one thing Life Book is teaching me is that I need to simnply overcome that inner critic and carry on and I am getting much better at it these days..... Ha ha..... sorry I know I tend towards silliness but don't you think it just helps the world keep going round sometimes.....anyway looking at my major blob attack and mess yesterday, I very nearly panicked and crumpled up my page but I didn't....I kept calm and carried on even without a cupcake by my side. It gradually took shape...we are honouring our futures this month and we were meant to look at our blobs and find animals within them....so a totem animal task but a fun one (we are also doing a serious one) and it was wonderful fun, I so enjoyed myself. It's not quite finished but I will post it when it is. Just don't expect a work of art! Finally....if you are not a member of my site Freeing Your Wings www.freeingyourwings.ning.com you won't know that we are having a CUPCAKE DAY on the 29th June. All you have to do to take part is to treat yourself to a cupcake that day and eat it without feeling guilty! Hope you will join us, why not take a peek at Freeing Your Wings too, we are a really nice bunch!! :-)
