Messy May - Daily-ish Journaling Challenge for Imperfect Creatives

Day 02 Showing up

Remember: Bring your messy self, take what you need (no such thing as being behind), and remember that more than zero is enough.

Here’s the prompt for today’s Messy May:

Show up in your journal today, in the easiest way possible. Use a bullet point list to (re)introduce yourself to your journal.

Today's prompt is hosted by Caylee Grey

Caylee Grey

Caylee Grey is a South African artist who fills her journals with loads of mediocre art. Imperfect, heart-led, gloriously mediocre art. Caylee’s the Fairy Artmother of Get Messy Art, the kindest art journaling community on the internet, and author of the book by the same name.

Here's some encouragement from Caylee Grey

Caylee Grey's advice for embracing imperfection in your journal:

Do only the things that make you happy. Rather than working on your weaknesses, improve your strengths. Make art for your own delight. Find the wonderful bits, and ignore anything that doesn’t make your heart happy. Art is where the good bits are.
