Got 5 Minutes – Challenge – Mini Art Journal

Attempting to find creative time can be challenging for me during certain seasons. The Ugly Art Club does a challenge every so often where they provide prompts for a couple of weeks. You take your own spin, choose your own media, own design and such, but the prompts are there. It’s fun to follow along with other artists and creatively-minded people as well.

I went ahead and took the challenge recently and enjoyed taking just five minutes with a day to create. It helps you get into a creative practice and helps me de-stress as well.

Below are some of my results. I created a mini-book which allowed me to work with a smaller surface. It saved time and I love little things.

How about you? Are you taking the time to create or do something you enjoy or that helps you relieve stress? I encourage you to do something that fills you up and brings you joy.

Wishing all a wonderful week filled with color, joy, and peace.
