I absolutely loved doing the 30 Day Art Journal Challenge with CreativeBug and Get Messy Art Journal! In fact, I’m super sad that it’s over for me! But you can take it any time by clicking here. In the meantime, I thought I’d share my journal pages from days 11-30 (you can see days 1-10 here).

Days 11-30 of the 30 Day Art Journal Challenge
I used a combination of collage and drawing for this page, which was supposed to describe who we are. I’m a lot of things, but I’m definitely a creative explorer!
My handwriting / lettering is definitely a work in progress! 🙂 (Just like me!)
This one wasn’t one of my favorites. But hey, they can’t all be winners, right? Especially when you’re pushing yourself and trying new things. That’s the “challenge” part of a 30 day art journal challenge! 😉
I used some vintage ephemera and some old painted pages for this art journal collage.
The combination of vintage ephemera, my botanical line drawings, and floral collage made this art journal page go semi-viral! (Normally I get maybe 50-100 “likes” on my Instagram posts, but this one has over 700 likes on Instagram!)
Two of my favorite things to paint with watercolor: women and botanicals!
I’ve been holding onto those vintage photos of old (PINK!!) phones for so long… I decided day 22 of the art journal challenge was the right time to use one, at least! 😉
This was my take on the day’s prompt. I listed a bunch of my favorite artists and created something that represented them and/or their art. Included are: Frida Kahlo, Amedeo Modigliani, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Bourgeois, Henri Matisse, Diane Arbus, Marina Abramovic, Nancy Mungcal, Lisa Congdon, Bonnie Christine, The Jealous Curator, Kara Walker, Francis Alys, Kathe Kolwtiz, Mother Nature and YOU!
This was honestly my favorite from the entire art journal challenge! It was fun to think about my favorite artists and influences, and how to represent them.
I kept it minimal for this art journal prompt.
I used vintage ephemera and some scraps from an old art project for day 25. I really love how this collage turned out. It’s definitely in my top 5 from the entire 30 days.
That dog floating in the middle just makes me laugh every time I see this spread! But I used this prompt almost like a vision board, and I’m ready to be a fur mom again!
This was a cover-up prompt, and even though I like aspects of it, I think it needs another layer of cover-up! 😂
That floral retangle in the middle actually opens and reveals my (favorite) answer.
This one was fun, too! I used more vintage ephemera, an old photo I took in 2004, some cut up paintings I didn’t really like, and more.
These doodles on the last day were so fun and relaxing. That’s one of the things I love about art journaling: I can just have complete creative fun, without worrying about judgment or whether or not it’s any “good”…. because if it makes me happy to be making it, it’s already good, no matter how it looks. 😊
