Here are a few spreads from my large 11x16 journal. I have shied away from working in it. I think I am finding that it takes me awhile to get up the gumption to try new things. I don't know if it that I am afraid I will fail. I can remember as a child and young adult, and maybe not so young, I would begin a project and never complete it. Was is boredom or something else??? I think there was a fear of not doing a good job. This adventure of art and painting has help in that. I am loosing my "wrong" notion that I or what I do has to be perfect. Boy, is that freeing or what!!
I see this trait in my sweet daughter. Amazing how something one does not set out to do intentionally gets passed down to the next generation. My sons even have traits from my Dad, and they did not spend much time with him growing up.
I like these pages. I don't think they are quite finished yet, especially the one with the girls on it. My daughter saw that one and said, "You did a girl with a dress?!!" I don't do dresses!!!!!! I am a pant kind of girl don't ya know!!!
And yes, I will finish them if I feel they need to be!!
