Over the last few months of blogging, I have learnt so much and I'm delighted with my blogging progress so far. And I must (immodestly) admit that I think there is real progress with the stuff I'm creating, too. I've gone from simple colouring and layouts to using my Prismacolors, and now my Copics, to much greater effect. I've learnt how to use designer papers more effectively and to practice with layouts. I think, more than anything, I've learned not to be afraid to have a go.
One of the biggest things for me has been being brave enough to enter the online challenges and I've not only had fun creating my entries but had the most amazing feedback from all you wonderful Crafty Bloglanders. I can't begin to tell you how much it means to receive your lovely comments and a big thank you to you all.
And now I'm learning to combine challenges, although I don't think I'll ever submit one item for more than two challenges - that way I can make sure I'm hitting the mark, as it were, with the challenge requirements. My brain would explode if I had to take more than two challenges into account, I think!
