I am so excited to share this page with you today. This is the first page from my new Side Street Design Studio Group where each month I release a set of prompts to create a piece of art. I started this group as a way to share art with others and see what they do. It will also help me to keep using many of my art supplies that might otherwise collect dust. Also, a monthly challenge is just good for those creative juices. It gets us out of our comfort zone, combining things we may not have combined before and making a big fabulous mess.
If you are interested in joining in on the monthly fun here is the link to the facebook group: Facebook Group

Here is a link to my Youtube Video so you can see how I made my piece: January 2019 Monthly Challenge
This challenge was a great way for me to break the ice and start back to work in my journals after the holiday break. I tried to stick to mainly Dina Wakley Ranger Ink supplies for this challenge as I knew they would all flow together nicely.
Even though the first prompt was to work on a canvas I tried to think outside my box, originally I was going to use an actual canvas but then I remembered the canvas fabric in my Large Dina Wakley Media journal and everything flowed from there.
Here are some photos of my finished piece:
I really loved how the colors turned out and I only used scribble sticks or the Dina Wakley media paints in matching colors. By limiting my supplies it really freed me up to create a very soothing and inspirational piece.
I hope you will join me next month for February’s challenge, I can’t wait to see what you create!
