stepping out of my creative comfort zone

Yesterday I decided to step out of my creative comfort zone with some watercolor paper & my Stampin’ Up! markers. I picked Colossians 3:23 as my inspiration and got to drawing. It was really intimidating, trying to think of how you want the letters to look and how to get everything to fit. After I completed “whatever” I just kinda went with it! I had a few ideas of what I wanted to focus on and make larger and I used the fonts on my computer to help me come up with styles as well. When I got the text done (above) I decided that LORD needed a change and that I needed a border. I looked to my trusty friend Lindsay to give me some inspiration for the border. And that was it!

I think it’s so important to come out of your own comfort zone. It stretches you creatively and helps you think out of the box. I’m so happy that I did this! Drawing is not something that I’ll do regularly, but I’m grateful for the challenge that it brought me.

I’m not sure how this will print out, but if you want your own version (for personal use, please don’t sell my drawing) feel free to save & print the picture below.

    This looks great! Getting out of ones comfort zone can be so hard, but rewarding! I definitely need to do it more! Maybe with drawing…I want to be good at it! =)

    LOVE it! I might just have to try this today with Eph. 4:27 (I read Eph. 4 this morning and verse 27 just kept coming to my heart over and over after that). Thank you for posting this! I might just have to give it a go (with my daughter’s crayola markers since I don’t have any fancy ones 😉 ).
