It’s almost October already and this year I decided to join the fun and challenge myself to take part in Inktober. I know that Inktober originally was created as a drawing challenge but I am going to give it my own little twist.
My Inktober challenge
Since I am loving poetry at the moment and I want to write more poems myself I challenged myself to write a poem each day in October. To include my love for journaling in this challenge I also decided I want to create a collage to go along with each poem. The goal is to write a poem on the left side of the page in my notebook and create a collage on the right side. I want the poems to be my main focus which is why I want to keep the collages minimalistic. I guess you can say my Inktober challenge is a mixture of a writing and a minimalistic art journal challenge. I know it is going to be super hard to be creative each day and keep up with my challenge since I am starting University in October but I still want to give it a shot.
Setting up my Inktober notebook
Originally I wanted to handmake a notebook for Inktober but then I got three Rarbooks from my dad. I’ve had them before and just love them because first of all, they look super cute and second they are made of 90% recycled materials. The cover might not be Inktober themed but I created a second cover page that turned out much better than I pictured it.
I also added a table of content in which I want to record the titles of the poems I wrote each day.
Last I also printed and added the official Inktober 2018 prompts list. I am not going to stick to the prompts but I thought it would be a great source of inspiration in case I don’t know what to write about from time to time.
I am super excited to take part in Inktober this year. What about you? Are you doing any Inktober challenge?
Lots of Love
