When I started My Friend Court the blog I knew three things I wanted to do :
1. Create 2. Connect 3. Inspire
and figuring out how to do the last two has well, been a journey! Hard and frustrating, as for the longest time it was like static on the airwaves ‘Hello! Is ANYone there?!?!’
Looking back on all of the years of blogging [because I did have blogs before My Friend Court] and more or less failing at what I envisioned them to be, I now realize its because I lacked my WHY. My purpose. Don’t get me wrong, I am still very much so on this journey. Its just that in the last year, my vision in creating has narrowed and therefore my connecting and inspiring has broadened. All of this is a result of using the creative process more often, and more effectively!
So for the month of March I’m inviting you to join me in my first [virtual] art journaling party, #MakeYourMarkMarch. I am not calling it a challenge- because it shouldn’t be challenging- just FUN! It is good to challenge yourself, but this is all about exercising/forming the habit of creativity. I will be giving you daily prompts to help you get into or back into the habit of creating daily. This art party is for E V E R Y O N E , beginners and novice alike!
I believe that art, self expression and exploration is meant for everyone and is essential to the soul! I have also learned that the creative process is a HUGE part of being an entrepreneur. Exercising, daily your creative thinking skills will only sharpen your ability to be a creative problem solver in you life and in your business!
Through this months art journal party I will be sharing pages from my art journal daily, as well as using the next few weeks to talk to you about what the creative process is exactly. I encourage you to join the art party and share your daily creations on Instagram using the hashtag #MakeYourMarkMarch.
NOT sure what mark making is?! No worries, stay tuned and I PROMISE to fill you in + get you up to speed and comfortable with creating! Remember, this art party is for EVERYONE! So make sure you join in on the fun + spread the word by posting this image below to your Instagram, Facebook + Twitter! Tag these prompts with #MakeYourMarkMarch + @myfriendcourt as your RSVP to the art party!
Use these prompts to inspire you to draw, doodle, sketch, paint, stamp, college, etc. Have fun, be creative, make something new! Exercise that creative muscle! Then tag your creations with #MakeYourMarkMarch + @myfriendcourt so I can see!
