Setting rituals. Rituals used to be a big part of our lives. Whether they were daily prayers, weekly dinners, religious festivals or rites of passage, they have been ingrained in our psyche since the dawn of humanity. They used to mean something. They helped set the tempo of life and were often designed to help us remember where we came from. What are you doing in life that helps you stop time and connect with something meaningful? Can you be better at it? Maybe you can reconnect with the spirit of the ritual and take it more seriously. Here are some examples of rituals you may adopt: Morning gratitude, Mealtime prayer, Lunchtime meditation or prayer, Evening candlelight sit (let it cleanse you), Nighttime stretch and Winter hibernation (take a week off from work to relax and catch your breath). Rituals create structure and this helps break up the day. Stop the craziness and catch your breath! #the100dayproject based on Pedram Shojai's book, The Art of Stopping Time.

These affairs of the heart. 36/100 Each of the #mixedmedia pieces in this series evokes different feelings, but when I try to capture them, they remain as abstract as the art. . . . . #100dayproject #the100dayproject #100daysofart #100daysofmixedmedia #makearteveryday #creativeprocess #creativelife #creativeplay #creativepractice #artist #art #ottawaart #canadianart #originalart #artstudio #artistsoninstagram #mixedmediaart #worksonpaper #collage #mixedmediaartist #mixedmediacollage #collageartwork #markmaking
DRAWING LOTS OF LINES BUT WRITING FEW WORDS. • .  I’m still having difficulty writing. Thankfully I have other creative outlets to cope with the frustrations of my illness.  I’m making index card art with more frequency.  Line drawing & basic doodling have become easy ways to distract myself from thinking about my pain... • . .

32/100 As your road twists and turns, some people, at the sight of harsh conditions, will take the quickest exit. Others will surprise you and be by your side during the sharp turns when your breaks go out. Just know that you do not need to do this alone. Look around and stay open for the unexpected. There is always a light nearby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #the100dayproject #100inspirecreatebe
When it comes to drawing children in various postures and poses, there is joy substitute for drawing from real life. I’m always stunned by the number of different ways that my children will sit/lay/hang while drawing or reading or eating! #illustration #kidlitart #dailydrawing #draweveryday #drawsomething #childhood #illustratorslife #childrensart #lifeasanartist #lifeasamother #justdraw #childreninart #illustrator #mycreativelife #childrensillustration #illustratorsofinstagram #makeitpretty #ilovetodraw #creativepractice #joyfilledlife
Overexpose:  expose too much, especially to the public eye or to risk. —- #101wordpaintings .. .. .. #fearlesspainting #dirtyfootprintsstudio #paintsketch #abstractart #abstractpainting #mixedmedia #creativeprocess #creativepractice #art #artist #painting
Day 49/100 for the @the_awesome_ladies_project #100daysofallaboutme inspired by prompts provided by @rukristin  Today’s prompt: What’s the most severe weather you’ve experienced ? I’ve experienced an “encounter” with a tornado many years ago, on my way home from school.  Everyone was watching the funnel cloud move through the sky from the windows on the bus and we were let off some distance away from our regular stop as the road was impassable with debris.  Discovered that the back of my home was missing but this was the best of the situation as other homes were completely leveled to the ground, one two houses down the street.  No one was killed or hurt as most people were at work or school but it’s an encounter I will never forget and hope never to experience again. . . . #100daysofallaboutme #100daysofshippingtags #the100dayproject #artjournal #minialbum #tellyourstory #papercrafts #creativejournal #cultivatecreativity #artjournaleveryday #journalart #mixedmedia #creativejournaling #creativepractice #doitfortheprocess

Inspirational quotes have always been my thing🌿 I used to print them out and stick them all over my room as a teenager, before i started to use them in my own work!  Today I started a new job and so this one seems very relevant- I’m always committing myself to growth and aiming to be the best version of myself that I can be ❤️
Playing around in my Season of Play journal with some new-to-me gelatos which were sent by a very kind soul @milesb802 😘 Thank you❣️ Aunty is very happy 😉 ✨ These pages have a base of gelatos and I find them creamy and fun to work with but I believe they get easily re-activated. Just a reflection and consideration, not a criticism. ✨ I blended the gelatos with water for this page and while it was still wet, I lifted some off with my hand, leaving this print. Handprints are so prevalent in my youth and as a parent. And it is through my hands that I prefer to play🙌 ✨ No scribbles on this page, but the “I was here” graffiti was inspired by @amandajgrace and her Scribbles mini workshop on @karenabend #sketchbookrevival ! I feel it works so well for this season 😂 ✨ On the other page which I previously posted (pansy girl), I rubbed the gelatos with my finger to blend them, no water. ✨ Swipe to see the pages before I added to them if you’re curious of the rubbed vs water blending. The same colours were used in both pages. ✨ ✨ ✨ @getmessyartjournal  #arttherapy #alteredbook #getmessy #getmessyartjournal #getmessyhabit #gmseasonofplay #mixedmedia #artjournal #artjournaling #visualjournal #visualjournaling #creativejournaling #journal #creativepractice #visualstory #stories #notestotheuniverse #intuitivepainting #intuitiveart
