Day 46 – Care to Join Me?

At the beginning of the year, I challanged myself to create a piece of art every single day. Considering the five fairly-empty art journals I have started downstairs, I have to admit I began my challange with a healthy dose of skepticism. Well, I’ve made it to day 46! I now have 46 little collages – one from every day of the year so far. Surprising? Yes! I didn’t honestly think I’d keep up with it.

I have to say that creating my daily art piece has become a pleasant habit. I often find myself beginning my day in the studio, unable to wait until after breakfast to get a little color added to a blank piece of watercolor paper. That’s all I need. Just a little fix to get me started on facing the day. It’s probably a good thing I choose the studio instead of the coffee addiction most people have. I’m sure it has to be healthier.

Have you always wanted to spark your creativity? Music? Collage? Cooking? I invite you to join me in challanging yourself to feed your inner artist. Give it two weeks and see what happens.  Then, make sure to let me know!

Feb 15 - Day 46

I was playing in the studio by 6:30am this morning. I found this vintage girl in one of my emails from Paper Whimsy ( ) last night and immediately fell in love with her. You may be seeing her a few times over the coming months!

    Love this one! Good job keeping it up Connie!


    I vowed to do the same thing. I have not completed a full collage everyday but I have worked on some piece of art everyday since January 1. I’ve always known I needed to practice more, I just didn’t know how true that was. The ideas come easier, you remember what works and what doesn’t and you gain confidence. My blog address is at the top, I have posted some of my recent work there. I so enjoy reading your blog and seeing your work, you are on my blog roll. Enjoy, Jan

      Thanks, Jan! I completely agree with you. I find just doing something every day makes me want to do more. I’m less overwhelmed looking at a pile of supplies, and when I make something that’s less that desireable, it doesn’t seem like such a big deal – I just do more! I’m glad you’re having the same type fun I am. I’m also enjoying watching your blog. 🙂
