When Things Go Wrong

When you are creating we all have a tendency to compare ourselves with others, and I will put my hand up the quickest as I do it all the time. But you know what, we are all individuals, we all create differently and see things different. We are our own worst critic, well I am here to tell you to be gentle with yourselves and be who you want to be. Believe in the journey and trust where the path leads because you never know where you will end up or what you will discover.

Red, Black and Grey

The September Challenge over at Off The Rails Scrapbooking is all about Red, black and grey. An amazing colour combination that can either be moody and dramatic or bright and cheerful. Which one are you?

They say that your mood affects your art work and I can say that yes it does. I have been feeling a bit bleck lately, with no energy or motivation and no creative spark. My journal page ended up being a very dark piece which is not really me but I love it all the same. That's what journaling is all about.
