Create a piece of art about resting. Can you slow down? How? How do you rest your soul, your mind, your body? What is the difference between quitting and resting?
As I wrote my journaling on this page, the thought came to me, “Seize the rest.” We have to seize it.
Sometimes rest seems like a luxury and we don’t take enough time to truly take care of ourselves. Lately I’ve been seizing the rest more. By resting, I don’t mean doing nothing. I mean using my free time in ways that are fulfilling. When my depression was really severe, I survived by watching Netflix and lying on my bed. Now that I’m not in the dark abyss like I was, I want to nurture myself better and not be in “survival mode.” I decided to do something that I love to do but haven’t done in years….knitting. I have taken knitting back up with a vengeance and I look forward to my needle time every day. I think it counts as resting because it is rejuvenating and it is a break from my usual routine.
How do you seize your rest? I can’t wait to see your art.
Challenge Rules Recap (Updated 1/1/18)
I want to put the "me" back in mixed media. All art is personal, whether it be a card or an art journal page or a painting. Join me as we begin a series of monthly challenges and prompts that will fuel your creative spirit and help you delve into the ME of MEdia.
Note this challenge does not take the place of the monthly challenges we have in the Dina Wakley Media Tribe Facebook group. If you’re not a member of the tribe, please join us! Artists in the group post lots of cool art and inspiration.
