Messy May - Daily-ish Journaling Challenge for Imperfect Creatives

Day 09 Spark

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:

Begin to play with a handful of your favorite or forgotten supplies on separate sheets of paper and tear it up so that they can fit inside your journal. Arrange and create a collage along with other things that spark creativity for you whether it’s words, paint, pictures, stickers, ink or whatever brings you joy.

Today's prompt is hosted by Lynissa Hayes

Lynissa Hayes's advice for embracing imperfection in your journal:

Don’t take your artwork too seriously or treat your supplies too precious. Use all your stuff, experiment, and have fun finding new uses for old stuff.
