I’m proud to say I completed all 30 days of the #tinkersketch sketchbook challenge in April! Wahoo! This challenge was just what I needed. See, as you may have read in my earlier posts, I experienced some health issues this past fall and winter that caused my busy life to come to a halt and made me reflect on what I truly need to focus on. Throughout these past few months, I have become better at saying “no" (which has been so hard for me) and committing to make two things a priority: physical therapy for my body and creating art for my mind.
I had already bought myself an attractive sketchbook when I stumbled across TinkerLab’s fabulous website and daily sketchbook challenge. This challenge provided me with daily prompts for each day of the month. I had expected that I would enjoy the process and that it would give me some ideas for creating in my new sketchbook. However, I can honestly tell you what I didn’t expect from daily art journal creating is:
I would definitely encourage you to take on a daily sketchbook challenge when the opportunity arises and be surprised with what you will learn!
Have you participated in a sketchbook challenge before? Do you practice daily art journaling? Please share about your experience, what you have learned from the process and what helps you stay committed.
