OK, so I think I love the Art Every Day month challenge. I'm a little over a week into my attempts, and so far, so good!
I've pretty much done something artsy-ish every day, and even completed a few things.
Best of all, I'm having a whole lotta fun creating all kinds of stuff.
Here are a few of my week 1 projects....
My playground has included acrylics, watercolor pencils, markers and colored pencils as well as some frou frou baked goods using apples and walnuts from my own back yard~ Those were quickly devoured.
I also attempted some fancy ribbon embroidery which isn't shown either because, well....let's just say that learning elegant stitchery takes time, and my first attempts are too painful for public viewing.
The painting, drawing and coloring are my own designs and the mandala is from The Big Girl's Little Coloring Book. (Such a cool book~ I totally recommend it!)
While I didn't really have to force myself to make art, I did have to remind myself. I mean, life is busy, and in all honesty, without the incentive of completing a challenge, making time to create stuff may have been pushed aside.
What's great is that the creativity seems to be building on itself because I have SO MANY MORE projects in mind! This week I'm hoping to try decoupage in a non-frilly / non-formal, non-Victorian looking usage. I've started brainstorming a holographic vision board, I have an idea for a beaded purple velvet bag, I'll certainly make more culinary art goodness and I'll most likely take another shot at ribbon embroidery in the hopes that my skills improve with practice. Oh, and I have polymer clay, and shrink plastic and........ Yep. I love this!
