Olive card

I've recently made a post on Facebook comparing card made 2 years ago with the recent one. I'm glad that I've been taking pictures of most of my creations as I can now see what progress I've made.

For some people card making is just a hobby, something to do in the evenings. For others it is a form of expressing their thoughts, moods, feelings for other people. Some always stay in their comfort zone and rarely challenge themselves, others try new things, learn new techniques, are not afraid to try something they have never tried before.

It took me a while to accept that I'm not naturally talented. I can't draw (even though my Mum is extremely talented) I can't paint, I'm terrible at taking photographs. I do have an eye for shapes, colours and symmetry though. I know I will never be an amazing card maker, but I want to be as good as I can and challenge status quo.

So here is yet another example of me getting outside of my comfort zone. Because I won't try to get comfy anymore :)
