Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 22

November 22nd, 2011


Welcome to day 22 of Art Every Day Month! Take a deep breath, you're doing great!

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.



Creativity belongs to the artist in each of us. To create means to relate. The root meaning of the word art is 'to fit together' and we all do this every day. ~Corita Kent

Its been a few days since I posted. Crazy, chaos and yes… still artful! Looking forward to picking up more Women’s Sphere art in the days to come!

Hard to believe we’re 22 days into this. And today – a little imagination!

I have added my art exercise for today – we had to sketch each other. The result is everyone sketched some one looking down! LOL I am not sure how to get aged skin though – draw wrinkles! LOL
Enjoyable afternoon with lots of laughter anyway.

Good morning! Can’t believe its been 22 days! I will do my best to hang in here! I am getting the chance to meet some great artists and see some amazing work! Very grateful for that.

oops posted the wrong Link again…I’d be grateful if I stop making that mistake! haha

This week I’m creating with paper. The picture of my AEDM project is at the end of my regular post.

I posted two days here, since my camera started working again.
On the second piece, I was inspired by two other AEDMers, Kristin and Paula. I hope I get some answers to the question I posted at the end of the post.

So sorry for the double post – my internet is being all kinds of wacky today!

wow, 22 days! i cannot believe that i have kept up this far. I am pretty amazed at how much art can be created when you practice every day.

My painting today is called SHINE – which AEDM is definitely helping me do. Thanks, Leah!

More watercolor today, and soon I think I’ll switch to doodling while we have guests here for the hollies.

[...] Art Every Day Month coupled with NaNoWrimo … have elicited a powerful response for me. Art journaling “saves” me when the writing is too overwhelming {triggering; too much remembering}. It has allowed me to connect the proverbial dots of my discoveries for this {my 50th} year — and from years past. [...]

I’ve posted a new miniature today. I had fun playing with tape! I am awed by all of you who have kept to your art every day. Way to go! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Do you take Thanksgiving off?!

Thank you ^^

Today I let go of a piece that wasn’t working for me, and I’m moving on to another one.

I love the thrill of experimentation!

Today I practised “gentle” art-making after attending a day-long conference that left me with little energy. A perfect night for colouring in Carolyn Manzi’s gorgeous book called Coloring Your Prayers. : )
