Every single day I want to make art, but then LIFE happens, and I don’t always have hours on end to play in the studio. I thought long and hard on how I could make those few moments I do have more artistic, more productive. This is what I came up with. - set a timer. That's it. Nothing monumental, nothing life altering. Just simple time management.
In my household it works for violin practice, it works for silent reading, it works for time out. Why couldn't it work for art journaling? painting? project planning? And so I grabbed a timer and I set it. I worked quickly and diligently, but with no pressure to finish. The first few days I didn’t, and that was okay. I was still creating. And then I started to loosen up and just enjoy the process and the time I had to create. Several weeks into this self imposed challenge I was creating small two page layouts within the 15 minutes time limit.
Want to create something every day? Give this challenge a try. At the very least you will put pen or brush to paper. Don’t work in an art journal? Try applying this challenge to your next big canvas project. 15 minutes will keep you working, inspired and motivated to get in the studio each and every day. Join me and let’s make something beautiful!
