I'm no good at art.....

If I had a pound for every time I was told that.... 
We are all creative, every single one of us.  That doesn't mean we are all going to get our pictures exhibited at the National Gallery but that's not what it's about.

"The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery but a process of creation.  you are not discovering yourself but creating yourself over.  Seek, therefore, not to find out who you are, seek to determin who you want to be." Neale Donald Walsh. 

Creativity is a natural method of releasing emotion, digesting circumstances and making sense of the world around you.  As children we do it instinctively...... until someone says its not good enough or it doesn't look right.

The process of being creative is paramount, not the end result.  We shouldn't feel we have to make things acceptable for someone else's eyes....  Once we release ourselves from the shackles of what everyone else thinks that's when the real creativity begins!

So just go for it - don't worry - just enjoy!
