art journal

this year my mom invited me to join her in a free online art journal challenge, the documenting life project. she happens to have enough art supplies to open a small art store and blissfully, i am able to use what she already has! luxurious paints, inks, pens, papers, stencils, stamps, books...and her experience. 

having time set aside for art is another luxury. we usually spend about 3-4 hours one day a week working on each page. i've found it can be hard to return to the world after being settled into my artsy side for awhile! in a few short months i have already found what excites me the most as an artist - flowers! i'm learning what color combinations thrill me, what my strengths and weaknesses are.
so, who knows where it will take me, but i'm happily along for the journey. 

would you like to gift yourself with more time for creating? you could always join the project too! just pick up right where we are. purchase yourself an art journal and use what you have! it's not about professional quality art, it's about learning how to use the different mediums, being inspired, nurturing your creativity! all it took was a half-hearted invitation from my mom, take this as your invitation from me!
