Messy May - Daily-ish Journaling Challenge for Imperfect Creatives

Day 22 Love

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:

Use gesso, black paint, a pencil, watercolors, and a vintage image to express the painful aspects of love.

Today's prompt is hosted by Debbie Bamberger

Here's some encouragement from Debbie Bamberger

Debbie Bamberger's advice for embracing imperfection in your journal:

Don’t think too hard, don’t use anything expensive for your regular everyday art journaling. If you don’t like a page, turn the page.


Debbie is sharing these glorious reproductive health-themed stickers with you. Just download the PDF, print it out at home, and use it in your art journal.
