Last week, I set out to work in my art journal for 10 minutes every day. For the first 4 days, I was able to live-stream my journal time over on Facebook live, which has been an amazing experience.
I decided to stream via my personal page (note that you can still see the streams if you're subscribed to me; we don't need to be "friends") when I learned Instagram doesn't save live video, and couldn't figure out how to do it via my art page. This little decision worked to my advantage, because I found that, in addition to all my artsy friends, my non-artsy friends, coworkers, and family popped in to see what I was doing and say hi! While I talk about and share my art with everyone in my life, it was awesome to see them take an interest in what I was doing.
In addition, artsy friends were able to give me suggestions and ask questions while I was working - I like to say this is our spread, because so many were on-hand to help make it!
I've decided to keep going and see how long I can keep up this momentum. I'll also be editing together all the streams to make one nice, long YouTube video that I'll post at the beginning of the next week. Let's see how long I can keep going with this! Cause it's tons of fun!
Don't forget - I'm still posting daily vids on Instagram each weekday morning!
