Loving the process rather than the outcome...


I know this page has a powerful statement but I wanted to convey the important aspect of creating just for ourselves and not being put off by negative criticism from yourself or others. So many times we say to ourselves "I cant do it" but if we dont practise then we will never learn. I had a go at drawing my face yesterday but although the eyes and nose were ok..I just couldnt get the smiling mouth right but I know that if I keep practising I will learn eventually. For this milliande prompt we had to draw a heart then use words cut from magazines to add to it. I saw these words and just had to put them on the heart.
