'Be brave, be bold' assemblage, mixed media canvas + VIDEO tutorial for Finnabair CT

Hello everyone !
I am back with a message: 'Be brave, be bold' in your art !
How many times have you stopped yourself while creating ?
How many times did you think: 'No, it's not great'. Oh 'they' won't like it...
Do you often compare yourself to other artists ?
How often you doubt your art ?

Well my friends... all above should not matter.

We should be brave, bold and have no regrets while making our pieces.
Today's canvas had at least 3 different looks in my head.
I was thinking: No, this is too simple, this is not unique and this is too strange...
Which option I have choosen ?
Yes, the strange one in my mind ;)

Why strange ?
I felt that this doll is not a perfect match... Bare doll with blue hair, scary looking actually.
But should it be perfect ? Of course NO !
When I painted my doll with gesso and accidently covered her with some leftover canvas I knew, this is it. I loved it !
 Step by step the project was coming together and I felt that this small dolly is me :)
Funky, fearless and happy the way she is !

I hope you will enjoy my process video.
Be brave, be bold and find your inner artist !
Happy crafting :)

Sending you lots creative hugs, Marta xx
