Hello, you wonderful artist!!

"WE ARE ALL ARTISTS" cards are designed to help you develop your own Creative Mindful practice using simple prompts to make you think about and create meaningful artworks. 

I am an artist myself, but these 30 creative prompt cards focus more on the process of art creation than the outcome itself. 

When I was 23 I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and I use art as a way of keeping in check with my emotions and moods, work through challenging situations, and find hope and joy in dark times. Keeping things together in a book brings the additional benefit of being able to look back and observe patterns and trends too. 

Having worked as a facilitator helping other people to use these same tools, I have narrowed down 4 key areas, and these 30 cards to help anyone, of any age or skill level the option of using art to help them connect to themselves. 
The cards are ready and awaiting printing, so there will be a quick turn around between pledging and receiving your rewards. 

I can't wait to share them with you!

 Look outwards - sense the world around you. Focus on your senses. What can you see, smell, touch, taste, and hear?

 Look inwards - notice your reaction to the world around you. Focus on your thoughts, emotions, impulses, and reactions.

 Make choices - set goals. Strengthen the qualities you want to have.

 Create a storehouse of bright moments. Bad days happen and it is important to remember that they pass. Recognise and record the good when you can.

Risks and challenges

I have done my best to minimise risk by keeping the project as simple as possible. I have had discussions with the printers, who have seen the designs and are confident in their ability to provide quality products in a timely fashion. If I am not happy with the samples, there may potentially be a delay in production while we work things out or find another printer but I have some experience with them so I hope things will move forward smoothly.

I am a one-woman army and look after my children full-time as well as working, so there is always the possibility of delays in assembly or boxes and things like this. I take my work seriously and will be sure to stay in touch so that you know how everything is tracking.
