As a mother of two, a wife and a full time job, creating can end up being put off until the end of the day. Staying up until 12am in the morning just to get a little practice in then waking up at 6am to go to work is all apart of the sacrifices we as artist make to do what we love. Being in the baby stages of making a dream come true seems like a never-ending quest, sometime unreachable. Getting discouraged and ready to give up is always in the back of your mind, but there is always that little voice, that little spark of inspiration that tells you not to give up, never let go of your dreams. Try something new, go bak to the old, mix the both of them. A busy life can sometimes take over and you briefly forget what you are trying to accomplish, then it hits you, the reason you were working so hard to begin with.
Ask yourself, What are your dreams? What do you want to accomplish? How do you get there? Are you holding yourself back or is someone else? Are you afraid to step out of your comfort zone?
Now what are you going to do to make it happen?
Continuing to practice with the Dylusions™ and Distressed™ line of art products. This is a mix of Dylusions paint and inks along with the Distressed crayons. Planets were made with a gillie plate on a separate paper then cut out. I did have to do a little editing, this was a two page spread and the scanner I use seems to pickup more then the naked eye can see.
