I did good on the art part, but the posting art, not so much. At one point I was getting all stressed about how behind I was and finally figured out how that was working against me. The point was to spend time making art each day and I was doing it for me. So I gave up on worrying about scanning or photographing and posting.
I really got into the habit of making art every day. Made me remember how much I like to do art. It's my comfort zone. Makes me happy. And we all need all of the "do things that make me happy" thing, right?
I like doing art, I like thinking about the art I did before I go to sleep at night, and I like waking up in the morning and going into the art room to look at what I did yesterday. And Getting My Art On everyday gives me a chance at all those. So I thank Traci for getting me on track with that. And hope that any time in the future I get slack about being creative I challenge myself to another 30 days to get the habit back!
Here's a few journal pages I did during my 30 days:
Inktense Pencils. The whites of the eye were done with white watercolor crayon. The owl was outlined with a black water-based Sharpie paint marker.
Crayola Slick Sticks . They are so creamy and smooth and colors blend very nice. I used them for the circle background. I used a rubber stamp and black dye ink for top and bottom borders. The Peace sign was something I had leftover from another project. It's a watercolor background and lines are drawn with a Sharpie. The blue along the right edge is a piece from a wooden fan that was coming apart. It was natural wood color but I colored it with the blue Crayola slick stick and glued it down. Page looks kinda groovy, huh?
I have alot more to share, several projects are for swaps and I don't want to spoil the surprise for anyone by showing them yet. A few others I need to scan or photograph (I'm really bad about getting around to that!)
Thanks again to Traci Bunkers for inspiring me to Get My Art On!!!
Hope you are all having a creative weekend!
