From the April 4 art challenge over at The Documented Life Project – The Journal, I was inspired to triumph over my fear of watercolors and made this.
I experimented with inktense blocks and was smiling when I finished. Though my hubby said she looks like a furby, my excitement didn’t diminish. I don’t care what she looks like, I love her and she helped me overcome my fear of using watercolors.
This experience taught me a lot with facing my fears and conquering a big mountain I set for myself. It was only when I decided to relax, play and see what happens that I begun to enjoy the process. This exercise taught me to focus on the little processes that make the whole, to appreciate myself for starting and going through the journey, for not stressing over achieving perfection and for making this to please myself only. The big room for improvement will always be there and I am very willing to go, learn, and enjoy but for now I am contented.
