This week is another exercise in listening to your gut ;)
I've been thinking a lot about how there's no such thing as ONE recipe for something. For example, a quick Google search for 'best lasagne recipe' will result in thousands of recipes all claiming to be the most delicious. So which one is truly the best?
The answer is this: who the hell knows! There are endless ways to make delicious lasagne, and everyone has their favorite way to cook it.
The same goes for 'the recipe for success'. Sure, there are tried and true popular recipes, but everyone puts their special sauce together in a unique way. And since I can't resist a good cooking analogy, this week's assignment is all about sharing your personal recipe for success.
I drew my artwork this week with a yummy set of Procreate chalk brushes by from DesignCuts, and they're offering yo two FREE chalk brushes from the same set.

Notice a trend? I'm excited to announce that DesignCuts has generously offered to bring you one cool, creative freebie with every challenge I send out! We're talking brushes, textures, and other amazing creative resources for you to try out in your work.
Try thinking of the skills, experiences, and things that have led to success in your life. so far as the ingredients in your recipe, then illustrate them the same way you would an recipe with measurements and all (my recipe, for example, calls for two tablespoons of 'figuring it out as you go'.) Consider the order of ingredients, proportions, and seasoning too. Tip: being salty makes everything more flavorful 😉
Caption idea: Now that you have all of your ingredients illustrated in your recipe, tell us how to put it all together - just like the instructions of an actual recipe.
