Horace's Completed Page

Hullo there, just a quickie from Horace to show you the completed journal page I was working on in my earlier post. The class included a lesson on journalling out all your negative thoughts, your demons if you like, then you had to take from that what your thoughts and negativity were trying to protect you from, write that down on a piece of paper, let the thoughts go and Gesso over them, adding a positive statement over the top from what you'd learnt. Well I won't spill my furry soul to you all but my negatives and fears were to do with fear of not being good enough, and from that I came up with the following positive message

I've had some tips on shading and other bits of my sketch that aren't quite there yet, but due to the quote I'm not incorporating any of the constructive criticism until my next sketch, otherwise I'll negate the sentiment I think.

This was such fun to do, and I'd like to thank Tam very much for taking the time to make this video and share it with us bears. We love to learn something new and Horace is really enjoying his new found skill.

With love from the bears


  1. Fantastic creation and a very good sentiment Horace. I love that you are branching out and having a go at something new :-D Go Bears !!!!

    IKE xxxxxxxxx

  2. Well done Horace for venturing into a new place. Be yourself I say :)

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. You can only improve by practising and good for you to blog about it - I think you're doing so well! And the sentiment is the best thing about it - so true. x

  4. Don't ever think you aren't good enough. You're the best bears I know!

  5. I think it's a brilliant thought to come out of what sounds like a very demanding process... and a great page too, and no - no alterations needed. This is a real piece of art, naked, open and brave.
