Art Every Day Month, Day 4

November 4th, 2013


Today is the 4th day of Art Every Day Month. I hope you had a wonderfully creative weekend! If you weren't able to keep up this weekend, no worries! Each day is a chance to start again. Jump right back in and don't look back.

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, in a past AEDM, 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. Mr. Linky automatically asks for a comment, leave one if you'd like (I love to hear from you!), but it's not required. It may take a little time for your image and/or link to appear. If you don't see it right away, check back in a few minutes. 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 #aedm2013 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Instagram: You can use the same #aedm2013 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. Feel free to keep checking in on Mondays or post whenever you have something new to share!

I’m impressed by all the early morning creativity!

Just wanted to leave a note to say that I’m enjoying visiting other participants but I’m not always able to leave a comment. I’ve been having trouble with Typepad in particular, and other sites that need to link up to social media accounts. I usually manage to convince Blogger to accept my comments though.

I very much appreciate those who have visited and commented at my place and will always stop by and admire your creative works even if I don’t succeed in getting a comment to post.

I ditto everything Indigo above said. Beautiful work here at this challenge. Have enjoyed it so much.

The linky is saying my pictures are too big so I can’t link up. Here is my blog link though for those who want to visit. Thank you and have a great creative Monday!!
I have a mandala to show today for those who enjoy making them.

Had that same problem with the file being too big…just choose the line that says “pick an image from your site” and it will fix the problem! (thanks to Leah for guiding me in that direction) Having fun seeing those creative juices flowing on all your a sites!

Thanks so much Maron and Leah for pointing me in the right direction also. It worked, YAY!!

I’m so glad to be part of AEDM again!
Having trouble posting my thumbnail photo, but will try again! Looking forward to visiting everyone’s site! :)

I don’t see the widget to link to, only a place to post a comment.

BTW…Leah, loved your painting and the little saying that prompted it. That Annabelle is getting more precious and pretty every time I see her in a post!! Thanks so much for sharing her sweetness with us!xoxo

I try to visit as many links as possible but don’t always have time to leave a comment. I’d like to say thank you to everyone who leaves comments on my blog. I think I’ve fixed the google+ issue to.

late post for me today. I will try for an earlier one tomorrow.

It’s so exciting to see what people are doing!

I did an art journal page as a tribute to a song that I adore, I’m thrilled to be getting messy in my journal again.
