Some time ago I was browsing through the very beautiful 'Take Flight' by Kelly Rae Roberts when I caught sight of a paragraph that struck such a chord with me. For as long as I can remember I have felt that one day someone will find out that I am not as good as they think I am; it applies to my job....to my art..........to everything. I have internalised this all my life so I found it reassuring that I am not the only one who feels like this. I looked it up on Wikepedia and there it was in black and white IMPOSTER SYNDROME. (It didn't come as a complete surprise to find out it applies to mainly women, that men don't feel this!) Until I read Kelly Rae's book I had no idea that anyone else felt like this. (If you've got the book have a look - it's on page 32). So, of course I had to do a journal page about it. This page isn't finished yet - it's a work in progress but it has come to a temporary halt so I thought I would share it in it's current state for now. Why the pink flamingoes? Because pink flamingoes are not really pink; they are only pink because of the shell fish that they eat. IMPOSTERS!
And now a big shout out to Aauumm. Yesterday I had a load of hits on my blog from Eastern Europe - unusual for me. I couldn't work it out until I followed a link back to Aauumm's Russian blog www.liveinternet.ru/users/aauumm where she had put my eyeball ATC. Of course I couldn't read a word of it because it was all in Russian ha ha! HELLO EUROPE!
One more sleep till I go to Dy's place at http://www.afth.co.uk/ to do some more art journaling.
And tonight I am going to see the ABBA tribute band Bjorn Again YAYY!........'Waterloo, I was defeated you won the war.....la la la la'.......................
Byeeeeeeeeeeeee for now
