You Are Good Enough~a mixed media canvas

Teddy Roosevelt was quoted as saying, “Comparison is the thief of joy”.  As artists we sometimes are caught up chasing the idea of perfection instead of appreciating how far we have come in the direction of our artistic dreams and goals.  If you love what you’re doing and continue to learn and grow artistically, you are already a success.  Everyone’s journey is unique.  You are good enough.  This is a canvas showing how Delicata Celestial Copper and Bronze Burst can warm up cool colors.  Full instructions can be found here.



Check out how to make this small canvas and all the new IMAGINE Crafts products today on the IMAGINE Crafts blog.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you're having a great weekend. ~ Renee xx

  3. What a fabulous canvas, Renee - and what powerful thoughts in your words above too... It's so true how some days one finds so much inspiration visiting other artists and crafters, but other days you can just be overwhelmed by the creativity and artistry out there, and wonder why you even try!

    I love the layered colours here, and how those important letters sing out, and I loved your comment today too. I'm still not back in proper visiting habit - there always seems to be so much going on. Very glad you nudged me to visit today though - this is an inspiring post in so many ways. Thank you.

  5. This is really awesome, Renee! I love the layering of paper onto your prepared canvas! But, even more, I love the message! I know better, but, from time to time, still find myself staring at others' works and thinking that mine cannot compete. Then, I remember, I am creating for me! That brings me right back and I am again centered! Miss you!
