I have to admit that there are really moments when I am very tempted to try using certain products but I hold myself back because I am afraid that I will mess it up and put the product or maybe a pretty piece of paper to waste. So this year, I told myself I have to stop thinking that way or I wouldn't grow; be it on the scrapbooking front or in my personal life. I set several goals and one of which was to work with G45 papers. I love G45- prints and all and I marvelled at how some designers could really carry the product so well. For perhaps a year, I very much wanted to give it a go but didnt because I was intimidated. So finally, I did it. This year. I just had enough of restricting myself, so my first task was to use G45 papers on a project even if I didn't know how it might turn out.
And you must be wondering, so what happened? I went to my local scrapbook store. I spent some money on the available G45 papers, some coordinating embellishments etc. Armed with my scrappy tools, I went to work using the papers on a metal tin. It was meant to be a gift for a special occassion. I just worked it out, casting out whatever fears that might creep in to say its not good enough. I just had fun, without a care. I was really happy with my first attempt but even more happy that I overcomed a little fear of mine. A personal milestone!
I do not know if any of you readers might have the same experience as I am but I do hope my little sharing today would be an encouragement of some sort. (: I will stop this wordy post by sharing my altered tin project.
Have a good week! (:
