30 Day Art Journal Challenge- Theme: Beginning

I decided to start a new art challenge. This is my attempt to motivate myself to do something creative everyday. For now, I am just going to list 30 prompts to follow. I might change the format in the future depending on how this goes. It would be awesome if you'd like to follow along! If you do and decide to post your work, use the hashtag #ArtALotChallenge and tag me. I'd love to see your work!

This challenge will run 1/10/22 until 2/9/22. As this is a new thing that I am trying, I figured an appropriate theme is beginning.

Prompts are below:

  1. Use a new supply or the supply you most recently bought
  2. Who is the person you most recently met? What was your first impression of them? If you'd like, make up a story about them.
  3. How has this year been for you so far?
