Wow, three months of nearly everyday sketching! Tinkersketch x2 and squiggleandswirl sketch. Phew, I actually do feel a little relieved to have a bit of pressure off, but also so glad I’ve done it. When I look back at all my little sketches and creations I feel quite pleased with myself. I think I can see that I am improving a little bit and that I have my own style emerging.
So moving forward I have learnt that daily practice makes a difference, showing up and doing the “work” or in my case play is helping me find my style and develop my skills. Doing something creative every day makes me happy.
So here’s what I’m doing or trying to fit in at the moment:
Art journaling with the Get Messy art journal challenge– aiming for one page a week.
Half way through 30 days of Collage with Stephanie Levy. This course is fantastic, there is information and inspiration overload going on for me, but the great thing is I have access to the course material for 12 months. Every day there is a new tutorial and an interview with a collage artist , and then links to other collage artists! I’m enjoying learning and trying new things, Oh my goodness though our home is being taken over by my creative endeavours. If you haven’t tried collage, let me tell you it can be MESSY, it can bring out the hoarder in you and old books at the op shop become very appealing.
A weekly watercolour class with local artist. She is wonderful and inspiring and I leave every class with ideas, something new to do, see or try and feeling happy and grounded.
I’ve started watching a drawing class by Heather Ross over on creative bug.
I’m doing #100daysofrandomcreativity over on Instagram to join in with the 100 day project by The Great Discontent and Ella Luna. I chose a random theme because honestly everything is kind of blending for me these days.
Oh and joining in with Debra over at Inner Compass Designs today with her Creativity tree link up. Where people can share their creative stories.I found Inner compass designs somehow on Instagram and really like popping in on her blog about creativity and intentional living.
So now it’s time to find some sort of routine to fit my creativity into ( knowing as I write this that that will not be happening ha ha). No I’ll just keep puddling along doing what I can when I can and trying to stay on top of things at least most of the time. Ok, now I’m at the stage where I feel I have been prattling on too long. Thanks for reading till the end. Feel free to let me know what fun things you have been up to or if daily creativity is part of your life (or you’d like it to be).
p.s if you happened to read my last post, I am beyond happy to tell you that being brave has really paid off. I have had a really great chat with my Dad and I feel like we are back on track and being authentic. YAY!
