I'm determined to push myself with my crafting this year. I tried out a number of different skills last year, but didn't take the time to think them through properly or to perfect them. This year will be my year to improve on what I do. For the most part, I think this will mean more time planning. I love to play and explore, but I wasted a lot of stash (and money) last year and I can't afford to do that any more.
I have found new inspiration though groups that I have joined online and via blogs and Youtube. I haven't really been using my blog very much and as a result, I have missed out on some great posts and ideas that are out there. YouTube
Mixed media excites me. I can't draw, but I recently bought a sketch book. I'm hoping to try art journaling with that. I'm loving working on canvas, but that needs a major amount of work as what I am producing at the moment is very amateurish. I have discovered Jim and have been so inspired by the 3D pieces that he produces. I'm hoping that my imagination can take me further than it ever has before and that one day I will be able to produce pieces along the lines of what he has made.
I'm learning to take lots of pictures so that I can recreate ideas with less going wrong, so expect to see a lot of that going on.
I'm off to do dinner and then have a crafty play time
