Anyway, as creative bears, we find we often live with doubt that our work is just not good enough. Every time we attempt any art work we find a little monster inside us starts filling our furry brains with doubt. What better way to diminish his power that to 'out' him? So we did.
We chose a monster image from Google, we wanted him to look really unsure, and this one certainly fit the criteria.We coloured him with Spectrum Noir pens, in suitably monsterish colours.
We then created a background using our distress inks, and made a path for Doubty the monster to stand on, using a brick effect mask, and texture paste, which was then sprayed with glimmer chalk mist.
Our words came primarily from either magazines or adverts. We have a big bag of cut outs ready to use, and once we'd jumbled them about, we came up with the following:
'The doubt monster will make you think your own work is just not good enough, BUT..... You must not listen to him!
The truth is you have the power to choose to believe in yourself! Trust your imagination and have fun. It's all the inspiration you need to make it happen.'
We had such fun making this page, and every time our little doubt monster raises his unsure little head from now on, we will squash him back down again.
Thanks to our friend Butterfly, we're entering this into The collage challenge at unrulypaperarts at the eleventh hour. :)
With love from the bears.
