Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 22

November 22nd, 2010


UPDATE: The Check-In post for day 23 has disappeared. In the meantime, please post your links here. Sorry for the inconvenience!!

Welcome to day 22 of Art Every Day Month. You're all doing beautifully! Continue to take risk, play, and get creative as you fill each day with your artistic creations.

The box below is a widget that I provide each day as an optional place to share a direct link (blog post or flickr image) to that day's creation. If you don't have something to share today, don't worry about it! Share when you can. In the meantime, be sure to check out what other participants are creating! Check out the links from today's post and the links on the participant page for instant inspiration. You can also see lots of great work in the AEDM flickr group. Feel free to share your work there too!

If you use the widget, please link to a specific blog post, not your main blog page or website (or you can link to a specific image if you're linking to a flickr page.) For example, for day one I would link to my first post: instead of my main blog page: This makes it easier for people to find your work.  If you want to share, but don't have a specific page to link to, feel free to use the comments section of this post to share what you're working on. If you're posting less than once a day, no problem! Simply use the latest one of these posts to share a link to your creation. For some, it's too much to keep up with posting every day, but don't let that get you down. Do it if you can and if you can't, just keep on creating, that's the most important part. If you get off track and miss a few days of creating, don't let that freeze you up either. Just pick up where you left off and keep moving forward. One foot in front of the other. You are making your life a more creative one with each step.

How to participate in Art Every Day Month: Check out the AEDM info page for all the details, instructions on how to get involved, and then visit the participants page to sign-up before you use the link widget to share your creations. The Information page also has instructions about how to use the widget below, if you're having any trouble with it.

Survival Guide: If you feel like you could use some more support, prompts, and motivation to keep going throughout the month, check out the Art Every Day Month Survival Guide.

Twitter: If you're on Twitter (I'm on there as @leah_art), I've been using the hashtag #aedm2010 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Creative Every Day Challenge participants: If you're not doing Art Every Day Month, you can still use any of the daily Art Every Day Month check-in posts to leave your weekly link.

When I am true to my inspiration, my brushstrokes sometimes surprise me by exposing something of my inner spirit I was not even aware of. - artist, Keiko Tanabe

I can’t believe we’ve all made it this far! Way to go everyone! I am going to miss it when it’s all over for the month.

One more thing to be Grateful for this holiday week; Creative Everyday. Thank You Leah. :o )


I always think that November is too busy leading up to the holidays but somehow I seem to manage to get a post done “almost” every day! That amazes me but I guess it proves that once you have a challenge, your creative juices do start to flow…

I’m finally finding time to post. Great to see all of this wonderful work.

Also posted some work by Grandson for a 3rd grade project. We had a great time picking out pictures from my travels for his desert project. We did the Sonoran desert. He finished it after he went home and Daughter sent along a photo of the finished project – perfect to remind everyone how crayons can bring out our inner child!

I made a video tutorial for a gratitude art journal page and a how to for using gold pigment.

I am using my creativity at work today, to create a Thanksgiving Card with an idiom.

Resting & writing. A page of my aedm journal on my blog centred around where I am on my creative journey today.

After a crazy week of work last week, I had some pent-up creative energy this weekend – yay!

more collage fun today! de-and re-constructed part of the boden catalog :-D

I don’t know where I am in the challenge anymore. Life has taken over. Oh, and warning. Don’t click on my link if you are allergic to eggs. Could be dangerous.

I’m re-painting a masquerade mask wearing girl. It’s one of my favorites, and the first one I painted sold last week.

I didn’t get to post yesterday so here is my work that I finished and blog post along with artsy musings about nurturing and believing in our own possibilities:

The Best is Yet to Come!

I hope everyone that celebrates Thanksgiving has a wonderful Holiday!


I’m taking my time :-) thank you so much for supporting me in that, Leah!

Finally a post on the Blue Moon, as promised.

Thanks for the update! :)

Make a quick and simple card yesterday. Off to hop around the other creations now

Okay, let’s try it here. Hi again everyone:)

I almost threw in the towel this year, but I’ve got my mojo back!

Today, a creative list…. and for yesterday, a mandala in gellyrolls… Thank you Leah for coordinating this challenge!

So far, I have posted every day since I signed up on the 3rd. I almost didn’t sign up, then I changed my mind and I am glad I did.

[...] Art Every Day Month – Day 22 I have done many gel transfers over the past few years. Day 22 was my day to struggle with a simple gel transfer. At least I have that over with. [...]

My month is just about all photography – which is art, not saying it isn’t. I just can’t wait to get in the studio.

My link above is to work done 11/23 and 11/22.
