This year I have big plans to take my art business to the next level. I’m hoping you’ll also join me in that journey, whether it be by taking your own business to the next level too, or following me on my journey. One of the things I have been wanting to do for a while is to push myself to create A LOT more art. In fact, my two themes for this year are “CREATE” and “MAGIC.”
Make more art, make more magic!
Some of my favorite people around the web have done their own projects to push themselves to the next level. Jenn of Jenndalyn Art did a 40 Works in 40 Days project that really inspired me to do something similar. And then, I was once again reminded of the challenge idea when Caylie Price of Better Business Better Life, asked me to create the graphic design for her How To Host A Swingin’ Blog Challenge e-book partnership with Beautifully Organised.
So, I decided to set off on my own art challenge journey! Lately, I’ve been having a very fun time painting on mini-canvases. My life is also pretty hectic since I don’t do art full-time, so I thought, mini art is something I can commit to. Plus, the new year is the perfect time to set goals like this!
With all that in mind, I’m going to start my big MINI Art Marathon on January first and include a few rules for myself.
- I will make one piece of mini art each day for the whole month of January.
- These art pieces can be anything mini-in-nature, like a mini-canvas, an ACEO card, or a small digital work. The idea is to CREATE!
- If I miss a day, I can make it up another day, but I must have 31 art pieces by January 31st.
- I will put pictures of all of the art on Joyful Roots blog and also sell the art in my shop.
