Is Comfort Zone Such A Bad Thing?

We keep hearing how important it is to step out of your comfort zone but.... is it always?
Maybe sometimes it's worth staying there for a while... ;)


Hello everybody! Hope you are spending a beautiful and creative weekend. But if you need some inspiration, I'm here to show you my latest art journal pages.


Sometimes I feel the need to create in the style I used in the past. To take a few steps back and work in a way that makes me feel very comfortable and safe.


As you can see, I played with layering most of all. It's not only about paper layers but also layers of watercolor paint and stamps. That always gives my works a very detailed appearance.


The paint was applied on a very wet paper that was first primed with gesso. When it was dry, I worked with different background stamps using many colors of permanent ink.

I know I keep saying "try new things and experiment" but I also noticed that staying in your comfort zone can sometimes give you freedom to express yourself without worrying about the techniques.
