For this project, you’ll need the Life’s an Adventure Maker Monday kit, which includes:
How to Create Your Adventurous Art
1. Apply the English Walnut Gel Stain to the frame of your surface using your sponge brush. Wait 30 minutes for it to dry.
2. Tape the inside edge of your surface to protect it from the Rescue Restore Paint.
3. Paint the inside of your surface with Southern Gentleman Rescue Restore Paint.

5. Apply Preaching to the Choir ChalkArt to the stencil.
6. Remove the stencil, wash, and lay flat to dry with the adhesive side facing up.
7. Cut your printed map image down to the desired size.

For creative types, hearing the words “discipline” or “structure” can make you hesitant. After all, many artistic personalities thrive in uncontrolled environments, right? You may do some of your best creative DIY and crafting work when the mood strikes, but staying true to yourself doesn’t mean you should totally disregard organization, either. A daily agenda is a powerful tool you can use to build your creative business beyond your wildest expectations.
