Last week Andy Skinner and I set the challenge and dared YOU to create with us.  We both have the believe not to ask something that we would not do ourselves so we too decided to do a real time challenge on Saturday between our two Facebook Groups:  Tracy Weinzapfel Mixed Media and Andy Skinner and Friends.  We are over 5000 miles away so the internet makes this possible for all of us!  We gave each other the mediums and colors to use and posted our status as we progressed all day.  The final step to complete our pieces was a free-for-all.

Here is how my piece progressed:


Here is the final project once I adhered all the pieces……..




Thanks Skinner for the inspiration and push to create outside my comfort zone.  Love what you posted for your piece:


It is great to push someone and not overthink that creative process!  I will be submitting my piece and we love seeing all the projects that are being submitted HERE.  Check our We Dare YOU to Create Challenge for all the details!

No matter what’s happening, you can resourcefully fight the battles of just one day.  It’s only when you add the battles of those two mind-bending eternities, yesterday and tomorrow, that life gets overwhelmingly intense and complicated.  Accept that it’s not the experience of today that holds you back and drives you mad, but the regret and resentment about something that happened yesterday or the fear and dread of what tomorrow might bring, but probably won’t.  It’s necessary, then, to let yourself live just one day at a time – just today – just right here, right now.”
