Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 20

November 20th, 2011


Welcome to day 20 of Art Every Day Month! It's amazing to me that we're already at day 20! Has the month been flying by for you too?

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.

Yes Leah, this month is flying by and I’m loving all the creativity :) !
Stay inspired!

Only 10 more days! I kind of don’t want AEDM to ever end…

I agree with Jul.

A frozen dandelion – can you believe?

More fun doodles from the hospital bed :)

Finaly got “creative” with the camera this morning…inspired by my dogs. Hey, it’s a start! lol!

This week, I’m playing with paper. You’ll find the picture of my AEDM project at the end of my regular post.

Is there a way we can continue this communal sharing of blogging after AEDM is over? I love that it is all in one place here =)

Can’t believe it’s already day 20! I was hoping to share some printing today, but the weekend class I’ve been looking forward to so much for weeks was cancelled :( . Some exercises in watercolours instead.

A little inspiration from a fellow artist, and a journal page just for me…

Watercolor and digital which one do you think works best? It is all a learning curve! :)

Yes it’s flying by! And I agree with Jul and Gwen ;)

Turkey day soon!

I finally accomplished one of my AEDM goals. I stopped by every web link on the page…well up to number 53. I enjoy looking at others work but I think sometimes we can get caught up in blogs, comparing and computer time we don’t do ART time. But today I wanted to stop by every and say HI! Happy AEDM! and thanks for stopping by my Trisha TRixie pages once in awhile. If you don’t I understand.

Phew – so busy being creative I almost didn’t make it today. Twenty days down, ten to go

Today for AEDM I’m reflecting on art and creative visualization.

I love this idea. I am doing better this year than I did last year…this year I am producing paintings instead of just pages in a sketchbook.

Not many ramblings today :)

Hope this week is kind to us all ♥

I did my art early this am and then almost forgot to post it…was getting ready for bed when I remembered.

I don’t feel very well today, but still managed to work on my mermaid painting. I love AEDM. It has been just what I needed to get me on the right path. :-)

I cannot believe this month is nearly over, didn’t it just start!?

I wish I had time to go through everybody’s posts! what I have seen, I love! I thank each and every one of you for being awesome souls!
