Messy May - Daily-ish Journaling Challenge for Imperfect Creatives

Day 10 Connection

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:

Create a page that connects you to your art process. You can do this by including more real-life stuff – for example photographs, stories or emotions. Try including real-life ephemera in your page and/or using materials that symbolise something in your life or something you are feeling (or felt).
By including more of ourselves in our pages, we can feel more emotionally connected both during the process of creating and when looking at our finished work. This can enhance our experience and enjoyment of creating!

Today's prompt is hosted by Johanna Clough

Here's some encouragement from Johanna Clough

Johanna Clough's advice for embracing imperfection in your journal:

Understand that imperfection is beauty when it comes to journaling! Imperfections truly make pages more interesting, more enchanting and feel more authentic. Embracing and even inviting these imperfections also allows you to enjoy the journaling process without stress!
