Be Fearless - Painting Tutorial - "Free"

Hello my Kindred Spirit Friends!

I have a story to tell on overcoming your fears, this painting inspired by e-course "Flying Lessons" from Kelly Rae Roberts. One of the topics that has really gotten my attention is the one of overcoming your fears.

Free tutorial on collaging, painting a face, doodling and applying texture"
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud 
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Quote by Anais Nin

I have been a SAHM for 2 years now, I have taken this time in my life to creating an artistic life that I am 100% plus devoted too. Still there are moments in which I feel my dreams are too big for my britches and that I am going to fall flat on my face, and not make it anywhere but "stuck land".

I am at the moment trying to do so many things, I never been a person that likes to work late, but girl oh girl, I am staying up late at night dreaming my fantasies into reality, editing videos for my you tube channel to share my crafty ideas, working on my first workshop "The Luggage Project" checking my Facebook groups, googling what to do this or that, checking out the blogs and websites of the people I love in the artsy world for inspiring ideas, wow....that was a mouth full I am going "crazy in the head" with all the thoughts I am yet to put down in paper....!

The point is this friends, I am committed to see it thru, win or lose, succeeding of failing... in my endeavors the IMPORTANT THING IS THIS - I WONT GIVE UP, when the going gets hard as sometimes does, I will keep on keeping on....! And if my ideas dont succeed now, maybe I try again and again til they do, til I get better at it!

This free tutorial is me saying to you, and to myself, there is no reason to be afraid, my dreams are real for me, they are also real for you if you dare to follow them. I am! Are you?

If you have a fear you want to overcome, share it with your love ones, share it here with me in the comments, expose the little monster to the world and see how they disappear!!!!

Hope you enjoy all the videos here posted, share the link with others that you know my enjoy a girl playing with what she loves....!
