A step into a year filled with creativity . . .
On December 28, 2018 I completed my first 365 art project: #365somethings2018. I felt amazed, happy & proud - and undecided if I would do it again. It was a lot of work! Although, how I felt while participating, and the way the 365 project consistently drew me to create, were so great. I spent a few days thinking/talking it over with my husband, Steve. I decided, I did want to do it again! This time I’m not part of a large group like last year. Instead, I’m working on my own doing a variety of “creative play” art pieces. Each one of them will represent one day of 2019. Watch this space to see the project to unfold. Questions? Comments? Contact me here!
Steve gave me a Rocketbook notebook like the one he uses to draw his cartoons. It is an endlessly reusable notebook that you wipe clean with a soft cloth. The pages scan easily and are saved. I’ll draw in this notebook, plus work in an art journal or two & an Altered Book. I’ll create a number of 3” x 3” watercolor cards/4” x 4” canvas boards . . . Maybe I’ll do a bit of sewing or play with some index cards. I am going to be open to any kind of creative play for the day, but not necessarily working on doing this every day! The freedom to do a number of pieces all at once, at my own time, enabled me to complete 365 pieces in 2018.
