This art journal page kept taking left turns, things did not go as I planned & I kept feeling the urge to pitch it. Numerous times, I thought, that ruined it. But then I kept working or took a breath & kept at it. No matter how much you make art, there will be pieces that feel more challenging & pieces that flow out of you beautifully. It’s the ‘sticking with it’ in the challenging ones that help you grow. It’s easy to make art when it just comes without effort, but like anything, growth happens when challenges are surmounted, when you feel out of your comfort zone, when you really need to flex that art muscle to get through it.
Check out this Crash the Stash to see how the process can have so many peaks and valleys & still turn out great!
