Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 9

November 9th, 2012


Welcome to day 9 of Art Every Day Month! Your creative energy is powerful! Let it out!

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.

[...] This card is my AEDM offering for day #9. [...]

My creative process today was one of those… ohmigawsh. I just made that! Sort of moments. Now, I see in the first image I created I want to go back in and touch it up a bit. My prayer is I remember what I did to do it the first time!!

Loving Art Every Day Month! Thank you, Leah!!

[...] here I have my art for the Art Every Day Month and Paint Party [...]

Thank you for this beautiful project! I’m from Belgium and I’ll be participating from now on. ^^

Wow! We have almost a week and a half of AEDM under our belts. I can’t believe all the great work everyone has done. Really enjoying it all. Leah, I don’t know how you are doing it with a little one but you sure are doing some beautiful work along with encouraging the rest of us! Many thanks!

I just posted an image of the oil painting I am working on of one of the “bandit sisters”. Love to hear any comments and have a creative day!

Even on my “not best” days I’m managing to do something with dart.

Today I’m posting a little fairy hiding in the midst, such fun to participate here with you all!

Still keeping up … still loving it … Thanks Leah :)

I’ve been keeping up a great momentum so far! Today I am resting, with an exhibit of my work opening tonight! I’m excited!

I have learn small thing today. Hope it could drive me to create my art more tomorrow :)

Today I worked on a number of paintings but on my blog I’ve posted my first attempts at pouring paint. It’s a really fun process!

I’ve not had chance to write a post yet but after the past couple of days making jewellery from my mandala designs (post & photos on my blog) – today I was busy making seasonal cards. I loved playing with sumptous papers and incorporating them into my designs. Great fun :-)

Hope day 9 has been fun for you all today.

Leah, thank you so much for hosting this project. I have met new people, learned new things, and today I found a new art medium that has me dancing with joy and has the rusty creativity wheels in my brain going again. This has been so good!

I made another scarf – this one with camel’s wool from Mongolia :)
