Julie's Creative Lifestyle

What I'm Adding to my Daily Routine

Monday, January 20, 2020



Hello blog friends.  I can't believe it's already the middle of January.  I hope you are enjoying this quiet month of January.

One of the ways I hope to be more creative is by working in the book 
365 Days of Creativity by Lorna Scobie.

I was gifted this book for my birthday from my daughter.  I thought this was such a great idea and a perfect gift for me.  

This is a book that I know I will enjoy working on.  It will help me to be more creative by working and experimenting with different mediums in art.

Some of you might remember that I posted these photos on Instagram @brklynhousewife a few weeks ago.



I was so excited to get started working in the book.  I picked a page to work on that said to fill the bowl with different objects.  I used a pencil and a thin black marker to draw fruits, popcorn, and cookies.  I then colored in the drawings with colored pencils.  Each page in the book has different things to work on and make.  


I was so happy that I started looking around the house for items such as colored pencils, black pencils, pastel crayons, and thin black markers.




I would also like to mention Jenna who blogs at The Painted Apron.  She is a talented artist who shares her artwork and techniques on her blog each week.  Jenna is also talented at decor and food and I hope you will visit her blog. 

This will be a creative journey for me and I hope to stick with it.  If you would like to join me on this journey, this book is available to purchase on Amazon.  We can be creative together.  Just let me know in the comment section if you will be joining me.  I will be posting photos of my artwork on Instagram @brklynhousewife.

If you happen to read this daughter, THANK YOU.

Let's be creative together!

  3. What a wonderful idea! Whoever created that book really knew how to inspire others to create. It is all really scary at first, but the more you do it the more you enjoy and the fun begins.
    I think being crative is so good for us! Have a wonderful day!

  11. What a great gift! I will have to try this....I am not very artistic. Like to be creative, but cannot draw very well. I have a student Pen Pal and she just sent a letter telling how she likes to draw and make flip books. Feel like I should give this a try....thanks and have fun !

  22. Love your drawings:) In elementary school, I was always S or even NI when it came to creativity. Sad but true!

  23. That looks like a lot of fun, Julie! I'm trying (not fast enough for me though) to get some things off my 'plate' so I can get back to crafting more. It's such a great de-stressor for me.
