I seem to make these around once a year. Something or another will remind me that, 'hey, I have a blog, I should use that'. The problem is, I don't ever know what to post that anyone other than myself would find remotely intruiging. But in the end, I suppose that doesn't really matter, since I started this for me, and therefore should continue it for me, as a place to express whatever I so desire.
This year however, I have a plan. Well a goal, a New Years Resolution of storts. It has nothing to do with blogging, but maybe if I blog about it as I go, I can kill two birds with one stone. The plan is to challenge me to be a better artist as well as be more creative (and maybe knock off a few of those projects I've been procrastinating on while I am at it). It goes like this...
Every month I get a new Medium/Theme.
Every week (or 2 weeks.... I can't decide how ambitious I want to be), I have to make a project that somehow incorporates that theme or medium.
This is the list of months I have and the ideas for them;
January - Marker
February - Fabric
March - Beads
April - Acrylic Paint
May - String/yarn
June - Paper (Newspaper/tissuepaper/etc)
July - Photography
August - flower/leaves/sticks
September - Watercolor
October - Gold/silver Leaf
November - Lace
December - Glitter
So far I've managed to make one drawing with Marker although it was less creative and more just practicing style. I saw a Stamp at Michaels Craft Store and thought the picture was super cute. Since I don't use stamps however, I snuck a quick picture then promptly went about re-creating it on an 11 x 15 sheet of paper when I go home, tweaking it to suit my tastes
And that's the plan. Now who wants to try this with me?.
