Better With Art

Have you taken time to make art this week? Get into creative flow with me.

Welcome to Better With Art! I’m Melinda and I’m here to encourage you to reclaim your creativity and establish a healthy habit of creative self-care with a weekly small-art prompt that can be done in an art journal or on paper if you don’t have one. If you’re looking for a journal that’s particularly good for my simple form of art journaling… and more… scroll on down to the links for my top recommendation and the markers used in this video.

I have been so much healthier since reclaiming my creativity, establishing an art-making practice, and embracing my identity as an artist. You never have to consider yourself an “artist” to benefit from creative self-care art-making. Don’t get caught up in how this small art should look when it’s finished, get lost in the process… and you’ll find more of yourself.

You’ll also receive a link to join the private Better With Art Facebook group. We’d love to see and encourage you there!

Click here for my top value-for-the-money recommendation if you’d like an art journal to get started with my simple form of art journaling. I use it in my prompt videos, and for the art journaling groups at the library where I work. I LOVE the paper. If searching for something different remember the paper needs to be heavyweight and preferably hot-press because although I love the texture of cold-press it’s really hard on markers and pens. This one is 140lb/300gsm.
