Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 12

November 12th, 2012


Today is day 12 of Art Every Day Month! I hope you had a beautiful weekend, full of fun and creativity.

I usually post my art at the end of the day, but every morning there will be a check-in post like this one, where you can share your work whenever you're ready to do so.

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 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 participant sign up page 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 #aedm2012 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2012 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.

Oh, dear, today I’m starting this painting over.

I’ve been doing process art every day in 2012, and it’s hard to believe the year is nearing the end. Process art is about being present to whatever is going on inside and letting it out without trying to create a product or make meaning out of it. It’s been a powerful experience to make time every day for being present with art materials. Please come visit!

Thanks for organizing this. It’s so much fun to see what everyone is doing.

I can’t believe it’s day 12 already, it’s going too fast! The weekend was lovely, but today it’s not, hopefully I stay inspired!

Thanks for hosting this inspirational and creative party :)


Still moving along with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and on track so far! Today on my blog, I offer a poem, for the season of death.

I am still drowning in projects for opening my new art supply shop, but I wanted to touch base, it’s been way too long. I am enjoying reading all your contributions, and look forward to things winding down to normal work days again, so I can play some more. Happy Monday Everybody!

I have been trying to do some art everyday and I’m almost accomplishing it. I love to create art but life gets in the way. This is helping me to see that I need to make this an everyday event and schedule art into my day-daily!

Today’s post proves why I didn’t want to start getting into photo layering because once I did, I knew I would be addicted. Ohmigawsh. Someone stop me!!! I love it too much!!

Just a very stylistic tree for today’s post.
