I decided to have a look back to my first and latest pieces of art work in different categories; tags, canvasses and art journal pages. I don't have any pictures of the very first card that I made, although I do have some of my early attempts and I have come a long way over the last twelve years. I have only been art journaling for two years and tags are also a relatively recent obsession. I haven't created many canvas pieces and that is one of my resolutions for 2018; to work on canvas more often. Anyway... on with the show...
My first tag eventually ended up as a topper for a card as I didn't see tags as stand alone pieces of art at the time. Now I use them for bookmarks and I am part of a swap group and they are my 'go to' format for quick pieces of art.
My first canvas (of 5 only at this point) was created for a challenge on the Claritystamp page and I later used the same layout to create a card front. My latest canvas was created for the recent ITAC world challenge (Europe) and I was far more adventurous with the use of white space.
I am a member of various art journaling groups; Mission Inspiration, JJJAMA and Art journal prompts. This is now one of my favourite forms of crafting and I have pages I love and ones I am not so keen on, but I won't give up!
Just to prove that I have really made progress over the last 12 years here is a picture of one of the earliest cards that I made, followed by a more recent one (for the same person).
