I loooove art supplies. I keep buying art supplies. I hoard art supplies. I covet art supplies, But the truth is, you don't need anything fancy to make art.
I 100% believe that whatever you think is limiting your creativity -- supplies, time, inspiration, talent -- is an excuse.
- Supplies don't have to be fancy. You can use any paper, any cardboard, any pen, any paint, anything you want!
- Lack of time is a myth. No, you probably don't have several free hours every day, but you can do a lot in just 10 minutes. Seriously. I have taught many classes on this topic. Everyone has 10 minutes to spare.
- Inspiration is a luxury. It comes and goes. Showing up even when you don't feel inspired is the key. Just show up and do something. Eventually, inspiration will find you again!
- Talent makes things easier, but making art is a skill that anyone and everyone can develop!! I am not a natural draw-er. I have had to practice and practice and practice and practice some more. And it's still not easy. But I can see my progress!
I encourage you to take just a few minutes today to make some art -- even if it's just 1-minute of doodling on a post-it. You can do it! And just like any exercise, it will get easier each time!
Thanks for stopping by!
