Do you remember how joyful it was to draw when you were a kid? To draw something just because you wanted to, without worry about whether you could or what the result would be. Imagine how wonderful it would be to revisit that feeling and just sketch something for the joy of it!
Last year I took part in a #sketchtember challenge and it was rewarding in so many ways. Mostly because it reminded me about the excitement of a blank page and the challenge/ joy of attempting to recreate images captured in imagination, even if they didn’t always turn out as planned. One of the biggest lessons was realising that doing is more important then perfection.
I also met some amazing people and artists along the way.
I really would love to recreate that #sketchtember joy so I have created a prompt list.
30 prompts, 30 days, 30 sketches. They aren’t any rules really just sketch something using traditional or digital means and post on stories or your grid. I have created a new hashtag #wecreateforjoy for the challenge so we can all see each other’s creations. Also pls tag @bright.blue.balloon so I can see and share your creations.
That’s it from me. Thanks for reading and hope you will join in and sketch, sketch, sketch!!!
We are striving to be more organised and tick the list. During this process I am learning more and more that sometimes just one more thing can make a big difference, even if it is tidying the toys before bed or organising breakfast the night before. It doesn’t have to be a big thing just something.
