Day 4 and 5 - Days of Creativity



Day 4 started off as a black slab of nothing. I added some silver spray and out popped this universe. The spray left a sticky residue so I grabbed some of my pearlX powders and got to work.

The next piece came about by finding this random bit of bark from a local pine tree on my walk this morning. It looks like a mask to me, so it was made into a bit of art that now hangs on my wall.

100 days of creativity - Day 3

Day 3 is a day late. I didn't have the energy to make one yesterday after not sleeping much the night before. That's okay. Today is another day.

100 Days of Creativity ; Day 2 of 100




I wish I knew how the background was made but it was in my stash from many-many-many years ago. It was on some really thin paper so I ended up having to mat it to make it more stable.
I had to stamp the faeries on a piece of acetate to flip them around to the way I wanted them. The "Waves" are leftovers from an envelope I made for a friends Bday card from an old calendar. And once again, I have no idea who made the stamps or where I got these two. I've had them forever, it seems. It's so fun rummaging through my stamp collection.

I was so resistant to sitting down to do anything. I had a whole list of excuses. I'm too damned tired. I'm too damned achy. Maybe I can wait till tomorrow and do two...but then Wednesdays are my looooooong days. I figured I would not be up for making two. I resist everything at first. Seems to be apart of my personal nature. Finally I gave in and of course once I started, I didn't want to stop. This one was really simple and came together with ease. I love it! I may just have to scan this in and use it for a greeting card front!

Day 1 of 100 video



The short process video of Day 1 of 100 Days of Creativity is ready!

But first, I found this one in my suggested videos feed today and I laughed and laughed! 



So true. 


And now, for Day 1 of 100....

100 Days of Creativity: Day 1


I ran across a video this evening that featured the first in one hundred days of creativity, a social challenge. 



And so I said, why not try??

Find all the info on the project, it's creators, and how to participate here:
https://thegreatdiscontent.com/100days

No strings attached. You can share them on Instagram, or, however you'd like to share them.

What am I doing?

So I am going to try very, very, VERY hard to have the decipline and to MAKE THE TIME to do this, one little 3x5 card of artsy goodness, that will (hopefully) be made into a book, or added to one. 

I have a ton of unmounted, uncatagorized, and mostly mysterious stamps 
from a stamping con from many years ago that I have NEVER used.

I want to use every, single one.

Here is Day 1.


And yes, there will be process videos....maybe not on all of them, cause who has the time!!! It takes a lot of time and effort to edit even a short video so the viewers aren't bored out of their minds.
 Even then, some meanies love to thumbs down. 

Whatever. 

I do have to make dinner if I want to eat a decent, hot, meal. 

There's just not enough time in a day.

Even now I am typing this as I fight dozing off. My brain did not let me sleep well last night. 
So it goes for me.

Until tomorrow!
