100 Days | Art Journal (1)

Lately, I’ve been feeling less creative (and generally less in a good mood) than I’d like, so I thought I should just make stuff and see if it helps with the mojo. My focus is mainly on art journaling, and I’d like to make something every day for a hundred days. However, the goal is not a strict one, since I don’t want this to become a chore instead of a creative retreat.

I’ve made quite a few art journal pages (and a tag) now, and have also missed a few days. πŸ™‚ But this is more creativity than I’d hoped for, and needless to say, I’m thrilled. And I thought I’d just show the first few now, and then the rest from time to time.

I’ve used different materials for different pages – most of them are made from gel printing with regular acrylics, but there are also oil pastels, gel pens, metallic acrylics, paper scraps, sequins, and even yarn.

They’re not perfect, of course – most are experiments, and some of them are actually from days when I just stopped working after spending a lot of time trying to create something nice. That’s totally fine by me – what matters is that I’m having fun with my art supplies!

What do you usually do to get your mojo back?

  1. I really like your art journal. It’s good your keeping it up during your low-mojo time.
    To try to get my mojo back, I search the creative sites of the internet, books and magazines to try to find something that sparks my interests.
    I hope you’ll find something that’ll get your creative energies flowing again soon.

    1. Thank you, E.C.! Creative internet sites are usually wonderful sources of inspiration, but sometimes (like right now) I find all the ‘great’ stuff too overwhelming / intimidating, and need to just see ‘good’ or ‘okay’ stuff. (Hope that made sense. πŸ™‚ )
      I think I’ll be ready to go back to checking out creative sites in a short while, though.
