heart-links


when i saw this week's DLP challenge to add a face to your page,
i began to panic a little, and quite frankly, i had a fleeting moment
of trying to figure out how i could "get around it".  :))
of course, the whole point of a challenge is to, well, 
challenge yourself to do the things you're not comfortable doing
(and many times to do the things you think you can't do)…..





so, i went to my stand-by method of resolving these issues:
eat half a bar of chocolate, turn on some really good music,
dig deep down in my heart, and just start drawing……
with no editing.
{well, okay, maybe a little editing.}





and the amazing thing is that while i was getting lost in the music, 
my heart kind of took over and led the way….
and before i knew it, i was able to eat the 
other half of the chocolate bar as a big reward!  
woo hoo!  xox


{supplies:  for the DLP week 35 challenge:
 moleskine planner, fabriano artistico 140 lb. HP paper,
derwent inktense pencils, pitt pens, 2B & 5B pencils, washi tape}
