I learnt a new word this week on life book - unstumpification.
When I started seriously drawing (so a very long time ago!) I would trace things.
I would get some baking paper from the cupboard + dig out my Care Bear comic and trace the care bears.
A few years later when I thought I would be a fashion designer I would trace the girls from the Cleo's + Cosmo's that my older cousin would let me read.
But I would be so disappointed with those, because the looked dumpy + stumpy.
I wish I had the amazing Jane Davernport back then to show me how to unstumpify my drawings.
The girl on the left has been unstumpified
Again we were focusing on bravery + the writing is a celebration of all things that I have been bravely doing.
It was a good reminder on a weekend where I have felt a bit down, and feeling a little scared about some things, but as I wrote these things down, I realised I am bravely moving forward, I just need to put on my big girl pants + take it one step at a time.
Have you thought recently about how brave you have been? Have you written it down? I bet you'll be surprised with how brave you truly are!
