Above is my first attempt at a weekly challenge on the Digital Nuts Group. Firsts at anything are hard for me, I want the feedback but at the same time it is a scary thing to have unknown people look at my work. I do like this piece but will be waiting with bated breath to see if anyone comments.
I have another first coming up that is really making me nervous. I have been asked to be the guest speaker at a Library group who is going to be doing ATC’s. My brother told someone there that I do these and they want me to be the person to give them directions on making these little pieces of art. I said yes because in my old age I am beginning to try to step out of my comfort zone and complete personal challenges. This certainly is a big step for me. I know I will sweat profusely. I have always wanted to try creating an altered journal book as well and I am about to make my first two pages for a swap I entered. I am nervous about that as well. It’s hard to make something and send it to someone I don’t know. I always wonder how my swaps are received. It’s so different trading as someone see’s my work first and requests it so they know what they are getting but if I could only be a fly on the wall when my swaps reach their intended target. Was my art a success? I am beginning to appreciate first times.
