365 creative play 2019

Stepping into another year filled with creativity . . .  

On December 28, 2018 I completed my first 365 art project: #365somethings2018. I felt so amazed, happy & proud -but undecided if I would do it again. It was a lot of work! How I felt while I was participating though, and the way this 365 project consistently drew me to do something creative was wonderful. I spent a few days thinking about undertaking this huge project again and talking the idea over with my husband. After some thought, I decided, YES I did want to do this project again! So, in 2019 I’m working on my own, doing a variety of “creative play” art pieces. Each piece will represent one day of 2019. Questions? Comments? Contact me here!

My husband Steve recently gave me a Rocketbook notebook; the same kind he uses to draw his cartoons. It’s an endlessly reusable notebook that you wipe clean with a soft cloth after drawing or writing. The pages are easily scanned and saved via the app. For my 2019 project I will try drawing in the Rocketbook notebook, plus work in an art journal (or two!) and Altered Books. I imagine I’ll continue to create a number of 3x3 watercolor cards and/or 4 x 4 canvas boards . . . and maybe I’ll do a bit of sewing or free play on index cards. I am going be open to any kind of creative play for the day, but I won’t necessarily be doing this every day! The freedom to do a number of pieces all at once, in my own time was what enabled me to complete 365 pieces in 2018.
