Howdy Candy's! Have you seen it yet? Dina Wakely's brand new book..."Art Journal Courage", it has become one of my go-to's for learning more on how to have courage on my own heARTistry journal journey. If you haven't, I highly recommend checking it out.
I Love creating heARTistry! I've spent years making all sorts of crafty goodness, from handmade cards, gifts, and home decor to painting and now working with mixed media using all sorts of mediums. It's no surprise that as an Artists, I've found that I tend to go through phases. I've found myself in the past trying to find a way to identify my own personal style. That very 'thing' that when someone sees it, they see me! However, in all honesty...I'm going to admit that the search within, for that very 'thing' that defines me is over.
I'm so over the endless search of finding my personal style & while that may seem contrary to posts past...it's so very true! I realize that I have no specific style, I create to create because I enjoy doing it. Art soothes my soul, gives me a place to go that is my personal safe haven. Why in the world would I want to try to define that!?! If I see it, I teach myself or learn to just do it! I also use to be so afraid of posting to my bloggy blog because I was worried about what others see, how I would be perceived, giving plugs to everyone else but denying my own credibility. I don't think that it's beneficial to anyone including myself that I'm not sharing what I create or writing anymore.
