To keep the creativity flowing I read a lot of articles online and today I want share one of them with you In the article Lisa G. Gold writes about how confidence and creativity work together and more importantly help each other grow. I wrote yesterday about how sometimes my lack of self confidence keeps me from bringing my camera everywhere and more importantly take more photos. There was a time where I felt the same about my layouts but thanks to a certain group of ladies at my favorite digital scrapbooking site, DSP, this is no longer the case. Originally called 'Feed the layouts' challenge, now Inspiration and Support it is a thread that is updated daily where members of DSP can share their layouts for comments and help. I went digging in the archives and found the first layout I ever linked there
and here's the latest I've linked in the thread.
Trust me it is amazing how encouraging compliments can be. Okay sure, the layouts are made with a couple years in between but I owe a lot of what I know and can to the always encouraging ladies who use this thread daily.
Starting this second edition of the Consistent Scrapper Challenge I know where to look for support and encouragement to keep it going. I am now confident enough to share my creativity but I'm also confident enough to ask for help when I need it. You see how the two things are linked together? So here's my tip for today. If you want to get better at anything, find a group of supporters that will encourage you whenever you need it.
