30 Days of Creativity

I discovered "30 Days of Creativity" through Pinterest at the end of May and thought I would give it a try in the form of an art journal. Here's an image of ideas from the thirty days website. It's helped me explore different ideas...

Mixed media art journals have been around for a long time. There are several magazines devoted to this special art form. I have friends that use journals to help them think about big ideas in their life. I have a few friends look back on their journal to discover who they are as a woman and how they've grown and changed through the years.

For me, it is a way to explore different art mediums. I also used this as a way to help my kiddos explore different art materials.

Below are some links to help anyone get started:

  • Ashley from LittleBlueBoo has a step-by-step tutorial for transforming a plain-Jane composition journal into a spectacular art space.
  • Tammy from Daisy Yellow has several posts with prompts. I bought one of her ezines to get even more ideas...
  • Julie from Balzar Designs has more ideas for pages.
It's not too late to take the pledge to do something creative everyday in June. Check out the "30 Days of Creativity" tumblr and go make something!

Thanks for the inspiration Sarah! I'll have to check the link out on pinterest! I have difficulty keeping up with anything for more than a few days. But - i did write a book and i guess the way i did it was by chunking it down!
I love the vision board you started! Thanks for sharing!
Cheers, Violette
