Hi Everyone Sherry Canino here and it's an honor to be part of the StencilGirl Creative Team and have this opportunity to share some creative time with all of you today.
I absolutely love love love fun, bright and bold colors and art journal page that I have to share with you today has all those things. But, I have to be honest when I (in my imagination) came up with this idea it seemed so cute and whimsical and fun....... And then I started to create it and and OMG I thought I was going to have to start all over and come up with something different because as I worked on the page I did not like it at all!
Has this ever happened to you? I think at some point it has happened to all of us and I will admit that this is not my first experience! As a matter of fact, it has happened many times and at first when I was a bit new at art journaling I would abandon the page, throw it out or paint over it. But at some point on one of those pages way back when, on a page that I totally disliked I kept going and going and going (sounding like the Energizer bunny here now lol) but you get my point. Instead of telling myself I can't make this into what I want, kept at it and I allowed it to evolve into what it was meant to be.
A sweet friend, fellow Artist and Teammate Karen Gaunt said it had a Alice in Wonderland Flair to it with the more realistic faces and you know I have to agree. It wasn't what I envisioned in my head but I like it and it's cute and fun and light, which was what I intended.
I share this with all of you today because I think that many times people see more experienced artists and they think wow everything they make turns out wonderful and I want you to know that is so not the case. We all struggle at times and we are all at different places in our creative journeys. So,embrace where you are in yours and push though some of those more difficult pieces and see what happens. Most of all love who you are and what YOU create because you are special and unique!!
Here is my video tutorial to share with all of you. I hope you enjoy it :)
Here is the drawing of the face that I drew and used in my video that you are all welcome to use for your own personal only please.
I hope that you enjoyed today's tutorial and thanks so much for sharing some creative time with me!! Your comments are a genuine treasure to me so if you have time please leave me a little message as I love to connect with all of you!!
Till next time much Peace and Love to all!! xxoo - Sherry
