Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 29

November 29th, 2011


Welcome to day 29 of Art Every Day Month! Remember, no matter whether you created one day or every day this month, you added some creativity to your life. And that's a beautiful thing!

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.

Creating something does have a positive effect and can be considered a beautiful effect, as you have said.

Even if I don’t complete the challenge, it was a thrill knowing that I tried!

I think I just have one to go now. They may have appeared on wrong days, but at least I will have done 31 pieces this month. In a way i will be glad to finish cos i need to make a holder for my yummy prismacolour pencils!! Thanks for doing this challenge Laura, I have really enjoyed it, the push to create has stretched me amd I have done things i probably wouldnt have, and also Its been nice to link up with other artists and enjoy their work. many thanks.

My AEDM project picture is at the end of my regular post. This week, I’m playing with Christmas trees. This has been an awesome month. I have learned alot about myself.

I finally have another portrait !

I posted a colorful new miniature to start the week. Okay, it’s Tuesday – but since my daughter had the day off yesterday it feels like Monday! :)

Thank you for helping me to be more creative every day!

So close to the end! This has been a great month, I can’t believe how fast it’s flown by.

Making my own foam stamps, a whole new world of designs to add to my art…

Today was a productive day. I stuck with a painting I wasn’t overjoyed with, and now I love it!

Reworked a piece so ended up posting twice.

A bit of silliness today.

My new mantra: Step away from the laptop! Plus it really helps (me at least) to have a specific creative goal to attain. Only one day left?! (sad face!)

two days for the price of one !

This isn’t about something I created, but about something I gain inspiration from :)

I forgot to post this a few days ago … so I’m double posting today and will add my final post tomorrow (technically later today) :)

Doodle on a mission!

Building on another background from Day 19, learning to play and trust the process, accepting that I may not yet know where a piece is taking me…

Just posted my first. I found this yesterday, and I think it’s just what I need to get back into the swing of things! Thanks! (o:
