Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 19

November 19th, 2011


Welcome to day 19 of Art Every Day Month! Let's have some fun this weekend. Anything you've been longing to create? Jump into it!

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're receiving this post via email, you'll have to click through the blog to see the widget.) 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, last year for day one I linked 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'll be using the hashtag #aedm2011 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2011 hashtag if you're playing along on Instagram.

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.

whew…made it..with 5 mins to spare!

Leah, just want to let you know that I am falling in love with art every day. Thanks so much for all your inspiration and for putting this together year after year. I am so happy to be involved this year! xoxo

Last day for my “canvas” work. I think next week is going to be paper projects. The picture of my AEDM project is at the end of my regular post.

I hope cooking counts as art! I didn’t do any painting or drawing yesterday but I have been busy in the kitchen…

Played with water colour and a Kandindky inspiration last night. So glad I brought my Art to Go case to the hospital again in spite of the extra weight it makes — I’m having fun being creative. Already have simple idea to work on today :)

Continuing to love your ladies, Leah!

So inspiring to be a part of watch everyone’s creative work evolve!

Good morning! Got an early start today and boy do I feel good:) Got my third page completed in my handmade journal. 13 more to go! LOL..HOpe everyone has a great day and looking forward to seeing what others have created today:)

Sorry wrong link! Here we go!

I’m sorry about the duplicate link. Something went wrong with the first one, but the second one works. Hope this is okay. Have a creative and wonderful weekend, everybody!

Some new rings and two more sketchbook pages!

[...] Happy Saturday, everyone, and Happy Day 19 of Art Every Day Month! [...]

Talk about canvas panels as substrates for collage, and planing most of the day in the studio! Hopefully will have something to show for it…

Exhilaration today, in the name of experimentation.

Painted a bowl of cherries- one of the exercises for my Chinese brush painting class

Leah, Thank you for coordinating CED and AEDM for 2011. Doing a bit of art every day – so important to my state of mind! Today, watercoloring an inked mandala.

I haven’t been keeping track of my creativity as much as I’d have liked, but I’m getting the idea that it can kind of be like meditation… just keep bringing myself back, keep bringing myself back. Not only do I want to be making more time for my own creativity, but also to be looking at what others are doing and sharing and encourage them in their practice as well.
So happy to be part of this community xo

Running late again….but then I always seem to be. I love that I have been able to keep up with at least posting everyday…just wish I had enough time to read and respond to everyone else’s post. I am enjoying this so much and look forward to coming here every day :0)

It’s 11:27 I almost missed out on posting again.

I played and experimented some more with mixed media collage.

forgot to post my sketch yesterday… almost missed today.

LOving Life!!! I love everything about creating art…
