More Than Words Challenge September2017

More Than Words September challenge - Fearless and Grunge

More Than Words definition of Grunge

"-GRUNGE is defined as a deliberately untidy and uncoordinated style. Whether it focuses on dark colours, a distressed or stained look, punk graffiti, messy designs, one thing's for certain... you have to not be scared of taking risks."

I decided to be FEARLESS and tackle an art journal page as I haven't done one for ages because 
I worry about which layer to put  first and whether it will be good enough! ( even though I have watched countless videos about it!!).
Being FEARLESS I chose 3 colors that I rarely use, and being deliberately untidy and uncoordinated enabled me to be FEARLESS about how I did it  and this stopped all the  worry.
I even signed my name to it!! 
Quite empowering really!
 Thanks More Than Words for showing me a new way to tackle things!! 
 I thoroughly enjoyed myself !!!
I think I shall incorporate being FEARLESS more often!!!
