I'm not big on New Year's resolutions but I do have a semi-scrapbooking goal. I want to incorporate more funky, artsy techinques in my LO's, like paint, more texture, different mediums, and make more of my own unique embellishments. Often I don't get to all that because it's easier and faster to just throw some stuff on the LO and call it a day, but I really want to push and challenge myself more. I like the way paint really added to these two recent LO's, and that's what I want to see more of:
I'm not sure if I shared this before, but long before I discovered scrapbooking, I drew and painted. I also took private group lessons with an artist when I was in high school for a few years. So I just want to get back in touch with all that and get my hands more messy. I love paint under the fingernails. I'm even taking an online "art" class right now with Wyanne (a mixed-media artist) all about discovering your own personal style. It's my very first online art class ever! It's really great if any of you are into that.
I remember I wanted to be an artist, but that was definitely not an acceptable idea for my parents (mainly my father). He wanted me to be a doctor instead, which I did. And now it's time to invest time in being who I am! Thanks for reading :)
