June 2019 - Taking Care of our Inner Child - by Finnabair

Hi my dears!
How is your creative time doing?
Were you able to find a bit time to put some of your emotions on the page? Capture a photo? Write a note to yourself? Remember that carving some time for yourself is the best gift you can give to your soul...
I'm not always great at that, but I keep trying. I don't always succeed, but I keep going, I start again and again. And in June, I've promised to myself to take care of my Inner Child and let myself play. Play everyday, a bit... and here is my playground - the journal below, all made in the colours of our June Mood Board.

How I did it, you may ask? 
I've decided to give a gift to myself and follow an online journaling workshop created by my friend, Kasia Avery from Everything Art. This platform is a great way to join mixed-media and journaling classes - and you can check if you'll find something for yourself there! 
I'n the beginning I was reluctant, it was hard to allow myself to do something like this. I always have so much on my plate that adding daily journaling was a bit scary. But I decided to do what I preach and... just do it. And here I am.

Just buying a class is not really as important as the decision to commit to it, follow - and do it. And I do, I really do, even though I'm a bit behind... I was away for the weekend then the class started and I will be away when it will be going, but I'm not letting myself to get discouraged - especially it is all kinda coming together!
The colour of the month in our Art Daily Cafe is Soft Coral, and it just one of my new Art Alchemy Paints which were released this very week - yay!
I added it to my art journaling kit for the next 2 weeks and you can see it in my pages which are popping up in my Instagram feed everyday...
Would you like to give yourself a similar gift?
You don't have to follow a class - you can start working with daily prompts, limiting your time you have for each page, so it won't get too overwhelming.
- find a list of the journaling prompts on Instagram, Pinterest or blogs and pick 1 per day to work in your journal. You can pick the topic and just follow.
- ask your creative friend to give you a daily prompt - you can give yours in exchange! Would't it be perfect to see each others creations?
- use Art Daily Monday cards - of course! They are all perfect creative prompts and you can just use them in a random sequence, or following the numbers, or ... any other way you like!

Working with prompts and remembering you should just enjoy the process, not worrying about the final results and letting yourself do as much as little or as much as you want is the best guideline.
Let yourself play. Your inner child is waiting to have some quality time, finally! 
sending love
