Ink It Like You Mean It

Welcome back! The holidays are over. Everyone can take a sigh of relief, a deep breath and a new perspective on your art area. Maybe you have some new toys? Maybe you have a wreck? Maybe you don't even remember crafting? LOL

We're gonna take it easy getting back into our art rhythm. Do you know where your supplies are? Do you know where your muse is? Did you have any moments of creative clarity over the past few weeks?

There are a lot of things going on out on the web - challenges to clean up your space (Journal Artista, Paula is participating in one), challenges to focus on a topic in your sketchbook each month (the Sketchbook Challenge), the challenge to focus on one little word (by Ali Edwards, but Paula has a twist with a new word each month), and the list goes on and on!

Don't get lost out there! If you need inspiration, however, feel free to pile up the challenges to feed your muse.

Our challenges will go to two weeks so you will have more time to play and less pressure to hurry. The first challenge is to use ink in your artwork. Yep, ink  - it can be writing, drawing, outlining, doodling. It can be ballpoint, permanent, quill, inktense pencils - you get the idea? What's that? Watercolor pencils don't count, neither do Sharpie paint pens (see - no ink in them, you can use them, but you also must use ink). Got it? Good - now get busy!!!

Link your project back here by Jan 15, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. Central time to be entered in the drawing for a prize. Most of all - have fun!!
