I have even more swappage to share today. (Swappage is a technical “Opal” term by the way. /ahem)
The first swappage is for Swap-Bot. Of course. It’s for the Pure Zen Zentangle 3.5 Square Swap. I’ve been participating in something like this for awhile now. I really enjoy getting down and just doing a simple black and white tangle.
The first one came out just “fine. We’re allowed to use grey markers for shading so I tried to use that to my advantage. I’m fairly happy with how it came out.
I ran into a stumbling block with the second one. A big ol’ mess of a mistake as a matter of fact. I checked with my partner to make sure it would be okay if I blacked out my boo-boo with a black marker and then draw over it with a white pen.
Lucky for me she’s fine with that!
I think I actually like that one better then the first one. Hrm.
Like I said yesterday, art isn’t always pretty. It seems a lot of my art isn’t always pretty.
I’m okay with that though! I know it’s not going to be popular, but like the button on the sidebar says,
I refuse to stop doing what I love just because it isn’t popular.
I sing that loud. I sing that clear. I sing it every day. :)
So maybe I find acceptance, maybe I don’t. I’m okay with that too. I think it’s all about accepting yourself. That’s what should come first.
If self-doubt creeps in and believe me, it creeps in(!!!) I always have this guy who loves me unconditionally.
How can I not love him back?
Happy Thursday, everyone!
