How to Challenge Yourself in Your Art Journal

Feels like forever since I've written any how-to's and it's only been two days. Funny how time flies! (and feels longer than it is LOL)

Books For a Buck!

ARTISTS: Many of you love using book pages in your work, so I'm selling 70 of my old paperbacks (all the pages are still intact) for $1.00 (+ S&H) each. Yes, I'll combine shipping. If you're interested, click here:

Day Six (More to Come Later, Too.)

Here's my day six post and, yes, I *am* up this early! Nope, not complaining - it's just odd, that's all. ::smiles::

I challenged myself to create art journal pages using random magazine pages (making them work, no matter what was on the page). I think it came out pretty good. The text reads:

You can . . . make it work!
Always challenge yourself . . . make it new once againe.
Turn your passions . . . into professions.

MoFo'Ness: Day Five

It reads: Simply . . . truth.

This is another one of those "use what you have or else" mixed media paintings in my art journal. I'm going to make another one either later tonight or first thing tomorrow. That challenge is going to be to open magazine twice, each to a random page. Tear out the page and, no matter what's there, make it work in a journal spread. ::smiles:: My magazine of choice is Martha Stewart Living's July 2006 issue.

Day Four: Mofo Madness!

Here's what I did today:

It reads: Sometimes the act of creating art makes me feel invisible. I don't know why.

Seriously, I *don't* know why. It's a mystery. That's okay, though, because aren't artists supposed to be brooding and mysterious? I don't know if I'm very good at the brooding part, but I certainly can pull off being mysterious. ::smiles::

Because Creative Minds Want to Know

So, I challenged myself to create something from a pile of randomness today in an effort to break free from my comfort zone. This wasn't easy and, of course, I ran off to do some "comfort zone" work following that project. It did, however, spark this article:

BREAK OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

I'll continue to challenge myself daily during artsomofo and see what sparks. I'm interested in seeing you break free! Feel free to post pictures of your efforts in the comments section. Please pass this information along if you found it useful!

Happy arting!

Day Three . . . ArtSoMoFo Challenge

Okay, I challenged myself again. I turned this (a pile of randomness dumped from a box that was sent from a nervousness.org friend):
