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.
