How It Works

Each CREATIVE is sent a blank Art Journal.

We've only got a few rules: first, your book must be used in some way - no sending us back an empty book or a completely different book! Second, your book must stay within its original dimensions. Last, please don't use glitter or acrylic/gesso paint, as these may cause the pages to stick together over time.

How to get started?

Before you begin, take a moment to think about what inspires you. It could be nature, baking, music, dancing, family, friends, books, animals, trucks, clouds, rainbows, swimming, Holidays, etc. We are currently in a season where we have more time to slow down and really look at the world we live in. When was the last time you walked outside and looked at all the beauty of nature? There are so many things that can inspire us. Try to take a moment to close your eyes and take in a deep breath. Think of something that makes you smile. It can be as simple as an image of a cupcake or a favorite quote you heard. Once you find that inspiration, write it down.

 

Keep it Simple and relaxing!

There is no right or wrong way to create your journal. You do not have to be a professional artist to create something beautiful. Some people may choose to fill their journals with magazine clippings and doodles, while others may fill theirs with drawings and poetry.

 

Try not to get stuck in indecisiveness.

If you can't figure out what to do next, just do something in your journal. Do not dwell if your work is good or bad. What matters is the keep moving forward, and the journal will come together as you move along. You may finish your Journal and not like everything about it, but don't change it. Often, the things in our journal that we see as flawed is the one thing that inspires someone else. Enjoy and Trust the Process!
