Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 28

November 28th, 2011


Welcome to day 28 of Art Every Day Month! The energy of this group is fantastic. I think creativity is contagious. Notice if you start seeing more and more opportunities to be creative now that you've made it part of your day to day life!

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.

I can’t believe we are down to the final three days! WOW!

In the 3 or 4 years I’ve been participating, this has definitely been my best AEDM ever. Thanks so much for continuing to inspire us year after year, Leah!

Somehow – the month – has flown right by!

Behind on posting, but trucking along. AEDM happened at the perfect time for me this year — with our move, I think I would have just shut down my blog for a month. This encouraged me to keep the momentum going. I poured my energy this past week into a doodle about traffic! :D

This week’s post is about exploring that place of inner stillness… where our greatest inner wisdom resides.

I didn’t join until day 7, but the last 3 weeks have just flown by! It’s certainly helped create a creativity habit with me.

The picture of my AEDM project is at the end of my regular post. Can’t believe we’re at the end.

I find it odd how the month just swoops right on by so that the holidays come in. Wow. But that won’t stop me from drawing.

I enjoyed the month. terah

Somehow I managed to do art over the holiday. That would not have happened without AEDM. What a fun, challenging adventure this has been! Thanks to everyone for being so supportive and kind!

Come on over and learn to handmake envelopes for your LeissnerArt Cards.

Thanks! Lori

[...] going on in my head, I guess it’s pretty clear where the inspiration for today’s Art Every Day Month watercolor project came [...]

Can’t believe it’s almost over! I tried to get into Christmas mood with today’s sketch.

4.5 new sketches. Almost done with the sketchbook!

another day in which AEDM and participating artists helped me be creative and share my art. thank you, everyone. :)

missed several days BUT I am loving life and am sooo glad I get to create for a living!!!

can’t believe only 2 days left!

Day 28’s art-making builds on a background I created quickly using the brayer on Day 26. I planned to work on something else, but she appeared through the shapes and I felt compelled to bring her out. Sometimes the specific art-making chooses ME!
