Art Journalling for a new month

Even though I left school a long time ago, September still feels special: a time of renewal and beginning new projects. Full Moon is tomorrow and the brightness woke me up in the small hours, dreaming of starting the new month with a daily Art Journal.
I did this a few years ago and amazed myself by managing to do a drawing or collage every single day for the whole thirty days – quite an achievement at the time as I was a working mother and a carer, with a swimming habit at the local pool (alas, can’t do that now).
But somehow I carved out the time and with each day it became a bit easier to do, until the point where sitting down to do my daily journal it was almost the highlight of the day.
The great thing about it is that it’s yours – you don’t have to show anyone, it can be as playful or personal as you like just as long as you show up at the page and make your mark. Last time, I found that it really boosted my creative confidence and more than that, the ideas just kept pouring out and I had fun.
So I’m doing it again this September.
Why not join me?
