Art Inspiration Journal -Day 1

Creating this journal entry wasn't hard...posting it is!

"I am so thoroughly convinced that if we don't set goals in our life & learn how to master the technique of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age & look back on our lifeonly to see that we reached but a small part of our full potential. When one learns to master the principles of setting a goal, he will then be able to make a great difference in the results he attains in this life." -M. Russell Ballard

This is quote given for Day 1 of the Challenge. In my art inspiration journal I doodled a page about my creative goal. To find confidence in my own style and to lose the fear of what others will think of my creations!

As creative people we all buy books and magazines and spend forever on the internet looking at other peoples work. But, when you stop and think about it the people that inspire us the most are those who do their own thing! Isn't that what we are all searching to find? Someone whose ideas are new and different? Why can't we be *those* people?

I truly think that new and different ideas are inside all of us.. we just need the confidence to let them out! So here's my journal entry.. done quickly with a couple of sharpies. I'm amazed at how many things I had to say about this topic- it's definately been on my mind longer than even I realized and today I'm letting it all hang out!
