Art Journal Prompt: Museless
Make a page even if the muse is not with you today.
Yes, Creative Therapy. Do you ever have days where you just don’t feel it? When no inspiration comes to you? Don’t think you are alone. It happens to everyone. What do you do? There’s lots of advice out there for ways to spark it.. but here’s Tee’s tip: Art till the muse comes. Yep. So this prompt may not be for you today… but the days when you don’t feel it.
How I created my page:
Color is my thing. I bet you knew that by now. Still it can break me out of a bleak museless day. So I reach for my bright and favorite colors when I’m have a day where I’m not feeling it.
First step – Texture. It’s a great start and I get that with text. You can write on your page like I did or put on book pages.
Second step – Color. Like I said above I reach for color to fill in for my muse.
Third step – Glaze. If you don’t know yet (stop guys there could be new people) glazes are thin layers of paint. You can thin the paint with water, glazing liquid or even floating medium.
Fourth step – Graphic. It needed something bold.
Fifth step – Journaling

A Word from Tee:
Not that I didn’t WANT to art today.. I just didn’t have much time during the day. Then tonight I was feeling off… but I played anyway and guess what? I feel better. I love arting. it’s the best in the world and I love that you all let me share it with you.
