Preparing for #Inktober

Preparing for Inktober

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

Preparing for InktoberSince 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

  1. That is so cool! Good luck! I’ve already been following this one Artist’s Inktober journey. Her idea was to keep a continuous story while sticking to the prompt. It’s actually pretty cool. You can see for yourself, if you’d like. I think she’s @rowan_makes_art on Instagram and @RowanMakesArt on Twitter. Sorry If that’s wrong. Lol.

    Anyways, good luck!
