This journal page represents my letting go of what I think my art should be. I get creative blocks when I try to make my art into something it's not.
I waste time and energy comparing myself to other artists instead of owning my own talents.

This page is piggy-backing off of last months Spring Watercolor Challenge. I told you I would show you ways to expand on those cards and here is the first example. Think about what a nest symbolizes to you and incorporate that into your artwork.
For me, the empty nest represents the release of negative thoughts and emotions - while the birds carry out the message of creative freedom.
OF THINKING MY CREATIVITY ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH.
While you are working on this page write down 3 specific ways you can make your art journey better. Here are mine...
Limit time on social media (looking at other art) if I'm having a hard time being creative.
Don't be too hard on myself if I try something new and it doesn't work (it's taken me about a full year plus to get better at painting and drawing faces - one time isn't enough).
See my ideas through to completion and don't give up early. I start so many projects it's crazy. I'm making a conscious effort to slow down - quality over quantity.
