I visited one of my favourite blogs called Bad Girls which is one of my fav's for inspiration and lots of oohing and ahhhing and came across a new blog they have started called PROJECT 52. I have to say that as soon as I read what PROJECT 52 was all about, it was like getting a slap in the face. It was me! I have copied over what I read so you can see what I mean.

My goal with Project 52 is not only to help you to be inspired, but also to help you learn how to unleash your fear. Most of the barriers that hold us back from being the best artist we can stems from that nasty little critic inside of you that taunts you every time you sit down to create….do you know who I am talking about??? The evil little voice that always convinces you that “you suck”….”just give up…you can’t create art”……”that doesn’t look good, maybe a different color would be better”….”you know you can’t work with that medium…give it up”…”what the heck are you thinking??? Are you crazy??? You can’t mix those elements and colors together” and the banter goes on and on until your soul is worn out and you truly throw in the towel….no mojo…and you stop creating….or if you keep creating, you feel unsatisfied and your art is lacking from what you truly want it to be…and why??? Because you shut down…because you are not creating from the depths of your soul….you are listening to the critic and he is winning the game. It’s time to make a change….and that is what Project 52 is here for…so roll up your sleeves and get ready to create…

So off I went, inspired, determined and ready to push the envelope.

This is my first project for PROJECT 52. I have been wanting to do a couple of journals for myself for a long time. So with a kick up the backside I had no reason to not create my first one.
I had a heap of fun with this!

Oh Tracey, I will have to join Bad Girls if it will make me clear my head of all those doubting questions when I am scrapping!!! Does this look good? Or I don't like that it doesn't quite fit!! So up goes the sleeves on my shirt and I am going to create some masterpieces that I am happy with! I am going to stop doubting my abilities and just have fun. Scrappin is meant to be fun and you always make so many beautiful LO's and OTP stuff that you must be having lots of fun. Love your blog and can't wait to see what you come up with for project 52! Luv Shaz xoxo
