Gala Darling Challenge # 5


“Throw yourself head-first into a creative project. Something that you’re excited about but which feels a little too big for you. You’ll be so consumed by it that it will fuel you for ages.” – Gala Darling

I love GD Challenge Days!

Sometimes I have to think about how I might achieve the challenge for the week. Today was pretty simple though. I have been looking forward to this one so much.

I decided to start my Radical Self Love Bible today.

The first task was to go shopping for a journal that I could draw, write and paste pictures in. It doesn’t have to be expensive. You ca pick up some great journals from the $2 shops or KMart. If you are a bit more flush with cash you could head to Smiggle or Kiki K.

I got a great journal and then had heaps of fun in the craft section of KMart picking out lots of crystals, stars, stickers, and tape from the scrap booking section. Who knew that craft stuff could be so addictive? I also found some good Derwent water colour pencils, some paintbrushes and some really great textas and pink highlighters. I think I also managed to snaffle some sparkles and glitter…but shhhh.

Then I settled down on the couch with my journal, art supplies, scissors, magazines, glue and a respectable supply of chocolate for an afternoon of creative bliss.

If you want to start your own journal you might like to subscribe to Gala’s Radical Self Love Bible school here. She will send you weekly instructions every Sunday and give you plenty of inspiration to create a journal that reflects your own unique style and has you falling in love with yourself!
