Three Hearts Art Journal page 1 - The Artist in Me!

My Three Hearts Art Journal

page 1

"The Artist in ME"


I stared the Mixed Media Art Workshop with Christy Tomlinson weeks ago, and just completed my week 1 assignment, 28 videos... 
presenting to you today, page 1 of my Three Hearts Art Journal


one precious lesson I learn from those 28 videos - get rid of that perfectionist in me


since young, I am the "color within the line" kind of girl, I like my "art" and other stuff in life to be organized, neat and "within the line", you know what I mean?


everything has to be in order, and I tried very hard to be "the best"


when life gets tougher, and when the numbers in my age gets larger, I learn to be 
not so perfect
I learn not to use 
I SHOULD
and I learn that 
there is no mistake in ART

hope to share with you, more of my Art Journal now that I am going into week 2 of the workshop

Love your art-journal! Want to start one too now - as a challenge to work a little bit every day. Maybe i will ;) Hope your weekend is lovely!

Linda B said...

Yeah... I understand about everything having to be perfect. When our kids were growing up, I couldn't even go out the door if the dishes weren't done and everything in order. I still seem to be that way in some areas... but I hope not so much.
You are always an inspiration... I greatly admire your work (art, business and blogs). Whatever you learn from those videos, please pass it on. I LOVE page 1. Keep on going, Kirsty!!!!
Hugs... Linda
