7 Day Sketchbook Challenge | Day 5

finger painting fun

This piece is part of my 7 day sketchbook challenge--learn more about it in this post!

Say the words "finger painting" and it automatically takes me back to my childhood!

I decided to play with primaries and paint for day 5 of this sketchbook challenge, inspired by allllll the finger painting I did when I was a kid! :)

It always feels so calming and meditative to work on each page and I loved feeling the paint on my fingers, the texture of the paper, not focusing on the result, and just getting messy! When’s the last time you worked with your hands and made a mess?

I had a really packed day and there was a point when I thought, I don’t know if I have time to do my sketchbook! But the whole point of this mini challenge is to prioritize something I love and to show up consistently—and I’m so glad I didn’t give up on it and kept this challenge going without any breaks! When I look back, I might have thought I didn't have time but in reality, it was not that hard to find 15 minutes to do this! I just had to make the decision and follow through.
