I decided to do a challenge to try and keep myself in the swing of making something every day.

At the moment I am concentrating on building up my DawnYoungART Etsy store. It has been put to the side briefly while I set up an aditional shop to streamline and arrange my different types of art. Having it all in one store was just confusing. I had a mixture of nursery prints and party printables along with my abstracts, it was a right mess. I am slowly getting there and in December I opened Stuff’n’fluff inc on Etsy just for the nursery prints, I think I will open another in a few months for the party printables, they turned out to be really popular.

I really want to step it up a gear and make this year my most productive, and hopefully I will actually make enough money to cover my supplies, I live in hope. I still get a thrill out of what I do and I love knowing that all over the world there are people who have purchased something that I have made, its a pretty damn cool feeling.

So for the challenge I have opted to make collages. I have stacks of magazines and papers which have been hand painted that really should be used for something more creative than just gathering dust in the corner.

I hope that you will head over to instagram and see what I’m upto each day as there are process snippets and behind the scenes look at what I am upto everyday in the instagram stories sections.

I will endevour to do a round up post at the end of each week with the best behind the scenes bits and pieces so if your not on instagram you can find the detail here too.
