Journal Everyday Update – Week 1

2 Comments

8 days ago, I gave myself a little two week journaling challenge and wanted to  report back with the results!

I don’t know if this journal challenge has been a success or not….

I have successfully picked up my art journal every single day and drawn something! Yay!

I have also successfully managed to misplace my brand new writing journal. I mean…it’s somewhere around here. I wasn’t even using it. What! Why??

Oh well, I did give myself room for using whatever journal I wanted for this challenge, so art journal it is!

 

I’m very happy that I’ve managed to stay consistent with this challenge. I have always loved drawing, but I never cultivated my skills past eighth grade art class when I failed the class for not drawing the pictures the way they were meant to be drawn. (Seriously.)

With this challenge I find myself looking for my drawing ‘style’ as well as playing with lines and shadows. Some drawings I critique more than others, but I appreciate each of them because they each represent me attempting to learn something new.

Anyone else out there do any journaling this past week? I need tips on how to get started on a writing journal!
