You Are Only Confined By the Walls You Build Yourself

You are only confined by the walls you build yourself.

What a powerful statement. Lately I've been thinking a lot about what I'm able to do and what I can not and then I've been asking,
 what walls am I building around myself

Turns out there is a lot more that I can do then I think I can if I don't let fear or ego hold me back. 

I love the interplay between the purple, the flowers and the spray paint here. Had to share a close up.

This is my first Modern Girl who's wearing pants. I wanted to make someone that really represented how real women look on a normal average day. For me, that would be jeans, a cute t-shirt and haphazard hair. 

I hope you enjoyed the little chances I took with her. It was fun making something quite different from the others.
