A FEW MORE DETAILS
- CHOOSE A JOURNAL YOU LOVE AND ENJOY WORKING IN
I will be working in a tiny handmade journal with assorted sized pages created from scraps
- THINK ABOUT CHOOSING A JOURNAL WITH MORE THAN 30 PAGES
I hope to continue this exercise long after the 30 day challenge has ended
- CHOOSE A WINDOW THAT WORKS FOR YOU & SET THE TIMER
This is more about the art and less about the rules- choose a window of time that works for you and the journal size you have selected and make the minutes counts.
- A FEW EXAMPLES TO GET YOU STARTED - YOU CAN TWEAK THEM AS YOU GO
4 x 4 Journal - 1 page spread -Set timer for 10 minutes
8.5 x 5.5 Journal - 1 page spread - Set timer for 15 minutes
8.5 x 11 Journal - 1 page spread - Set timer for 20 minutes
9 x 12 Journal - 1 page spread - Set timer for 30 minutes
- SHARE THE CHALLENGE & SPREAD THE INSPIRATION AROUND
I will be sharing my art journal challenge pages on my blog, randomly. I want this to be less about keeping a schedule and more about creating. I will also be sharing on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK and welcome you to do the same. We have all experienced the joy of creating and sharing art with others, so let's spread the inspiration around!
FIND YOUR MARK
- SCOUR YOUR WORK TO FIND YOUR OWN UNIQUE STYLE
My marks may not be your marks. If you find yourself creating the same marks over and over again you have found YOUR OWN mark!
- USE THIS DAILY EXERCISE TO MAKE ART THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
Remember no rules, just creating what love
- PRACTICE WHAT YOU LOVE
If you find a technique you love, use it! Do you gravitate toward a specific color combination? Those are your key colors. Love collage work? Then collage your way through the 30 days. Do what makes YOU happy!
- STILL FEEL PARALYZED BY THE BLANK PAGE?
Use my sample set of marks below to get you started. These are my favorite go to marks. Practice with them, alter then, and tweak them to make them your own. Trace them, cut them out or use them as a review sheet. It's up to you! Use the button below to download a sheet for yourself and a friend! It's FREE!
I hope you will join me in this stress free, just have fun with art marks daily challenge! Happy Creating!
