Voyage to the Unknown: ScratchboardThis is my second journal using Mrs-Durden's journey theme. I've chosen for this journey to head into Traditional Art, to the Scratchboard sub section of the site. I've seen a few pieces from this section that were simply marvelous, but it's not somewhere I journey regularly. That said, I hope you enjoy the selection!More Like This
As always, please give the artists some love!

Voyage to the unknown: Master JournalWith the amount of people jumping in on this new "Voyage to the unknown" project, I wanted to create a master journal where I will collect all of the journals that have been put together following my initial post! This journal serves the purpose of explaining the project, and collecting everyone's journals, so feel free to include it in your new "voyage to the unknown" collections, and please leave a comment with a link to your awesome journals so I can feature them here!More Like This
The idea is to browse through a category or sub-category that you don't necessarily visit frequently, or that you browse the least, and collect some of the art you find stands out! The point of this is to challenge ourselves and discover new art in the process! I'll personally be tagging people in each issue to follow suit and do their own, however, don't feel obligated to respond to the tag. I just want everyone to know I'd love to see them do their own spin of this feature <
Something about talentI've always disliked the term "talented".More Like This
It implies that things come to you naturally and without any effort, while in reality the people that are considered extremely talented rarely get to the top without any practice. And the 'rarely' is an understatement. I've never seen anyone reach the top without effort. Not ever. I dislike how 'not having talent' is often used as an excuse for not being good at something, while in reality the only real reason that keeps people from accomplishing things is not working hard enough for it. And sure, not working hard enough can have its reasons. Very valid reasons like having different priority's in life, not having enough time next to your school, job or family life, or even battling an illness. It doesn't change the fact that you're capable of doing it.
I always tend to compare art (or any craft in that matter) with running a marathon. Anyone that's not severely handicapped could run a marathon, but it takes a lot of dedication
Speed painting feature!First of all; I have to say I'm really amazed by the amount of people that have joined me in the #speedpaintingchallenge over the last month!More Like This
I didn't expect so many people to actually take this challenge, let alone take it this month already. There were many people that featured and spread the message. There have been many people different people joining. Some talented, some beginners. Some used digital art, some resorted to traditional art, making pretty pictures of their drawing with the mediums they used next to it. I've even see speed paintings been recorded and uploaded to YouTube. I've even seen the message spread to twitter and other mediums. Really cool!
It was hard to pick a winner for the challenge. You've all worked hard and you've all done great jobs on painting and improving!
But the winner of the challenge is Delight046!!!
She's done an amazing job at painting every day for about 2 hours, even if that meant she could make more than one painting
