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 habit of seeing possibilities for using recycled materials in your art journal as tools for mark making and background creation.

Amanda Trought 's advice for embracing imperfection in your journal:

Take time to play in your journal every day. Do not judge yourself and don’t look for faults or imperfections but see it as a journey and enjoy it every step of the way.
