Week One, The 100 Day Project

12 Comments

The 100 Day Project can be a little intimidating, a little daunting, a little overwhelming. But it can also be fun, be rewarding, bring a feeling of accomplishment. And you may need to remind me of that in about a month. Hahahahahahah! But! Week one is a done deal, a thank-goodness-i-am-not-behind-yet kind of moment and I want to share the week with you.

You’ve already seen days 1 -3, but since I’m showing you week one – there they are again. Hahahahaha! Now, moving forward!

Here are two shots of day #4. One before and one after the splatter effect. All these except day one are on YouTangle.art Tiles from Hahnemühle. I’ll be using these awesome tiles for the duration and throwing a bunch of various product at them along the way. I am also using Zensations Technical Drawing Pens from Zebra Pen for this entire project. That’s 100 days! This particular tile had Dyestress Blendable Inks from ColorBox. So fun and dreamy looking the way this color applies to the tiles! The tangles are all mine – floral, floral2, ripped screen and pine roll.

Day 5 was also colored with Dyestress Inks, just applied in a little different manner. Tangles are porter and trellis (both mine) with a little printemps sprinkled in .

Day 6 brought a little steampunk fun on a Daler Rowney Acrylic Ink background. Beaded pipes, steel and ripple were tangles in my most recent book Tangle Starts Planner, Into the Future – which featured a steampunk theme with 100 steampunk oriented tangle patterns.

And that brings us to day 7 and another Daler Rowney Acrylic Ink background. I chose to tangle this tile with a line of articulated molygon, a pattern from Zentangle HQ.

Week one was fun. Just a little busy trying to handle the website and all the art this entails, my FB group, working on a new book, doing product review background work and fitting in The 100 Day Project. And helping Mark who is a little overwhelmed with this whole hip issue. Update on Mark – we went to the neurosurgeon and found out this is not a back issue. They did X-rays on his hip and knee and we have been referred to an ortho doctor next. We believe it is going to involve a hip replacement but are praying for other options to try first. Fishing season is almost upon us. If the snow would just stop already. Did I say snow? Ugh. Here is one last photo for today:

The morning of April 9, 2019. We got eight inches of snow overnight and it has been snowing ever since. Is spring ever going to come? The weathermen on television tell us this year’s snow is the third largest amount in the history-keeping records for our area in Maine. So, no, this is not the norm. Thankfully. I do love snow. Just not the massive amounts we have had this year. See you tomorrow!

  1. Beautiful, colorful and exciting! I admire your enthusiasm and determination to commit to 100 days of creating art. AND continuing to create blog posts. AND reviewing art supplies. AND, of course, looking after Mark! 👏👏👏

  2. Well done on making it through Week 1 – I think day 2 is my favourite so far – the dark line, the sense of movement!

    Sorry to hear things are getting more complex with Mark’s health – but at least it sounds like people are starting to get to the root of the problem.

    • thanks, kris, this is going to be a long challenge. hope I stay with it. and hopefully warmer temps here soon <3

  3. Good news it isn’t a back issue, hope that ortho doctor appointment comes through quickly. You could certainly do with a bit of spring, the trees are throwing off pollen here & I’m sneezing right on time!! Warming up a bit. I really didn’t think you’d do this again, I almost tried but then realised it really wasn’t going to work so…… until house is sorted………. Love the articulated molygon & the way you nestled your chop in there.

    • I felt like I needed to since a lot of the group members are doing it. I don’t know if I’ll make it all the way to the end but I’m going to try

  4. Good luck with the 100 day project – you’re doing a fabulous job with the pieces you’ve done so far. Good luck to you and Mark, too. You both need a break!

    • thanks, sandra, the past couple days have been especially hard. now his other leg is hurting, too. I’m guessing from having to carry the left leg’s responsibilities.

    • It is hard keeping up but it really is fun and gives a huge sense of accomplishment.
