She read that title and ran screaming from the room! “NOOOOOOO!!!!!! Not The 100 Day Project again!!!!!” Yep! It is that time again.
Hahahaha! Actually I participated in The 100 Day Project last year and I swore I would never do it again. The project lasts – 100 days – and you commit to making a piece of art each day, for 100 days. It doesn’t have to be art. You could commit to eating one donut every day for 100 days, or to run one mile every day for 100 days, or complete a jigsaw puzzle every day for 100 days. Any project that gets you and your beautiful brain in sync and doing something positive. I guess that cancels out the donuts. No fair. For me that means art. Last year I opened this project up to my Facebook group – Tangle All Around – and invited them to participate along with me. It was really hard. As in mega hard. The first 20, 30, 40 days went ok, then life happened. Life has a way of being a real buzzkill at times. And that’s ok. The thought is if you miss a day – don’t beat yourself up over it. Jump back in the next day and move forward. At the end I made a collage through Turbo Collage showing all 100 pieces I did for the challenge.
On day #101 I made this piece of digital art that I shared in my group. Hahahaha! Several people shared it to their own walls and posted photos of their artwork with it. I really felt like I should have had shirts made to hand out in the group. Well they want to do it again this year. Shaking my head. Do they understand the commitment this is??? Oh well, it is my group. What am I going to say? Hahahahahaha! I am going to jump on this puppy (not a literal puppy) with both feet and go for it. Last year I used a Baby Leda Pocket Sketchbook and it worked very well. This year, I think I am going to use YouTangle.art Tiles from Hahnemühle. They will be perfect for this project. And at the end I am going to get Robin Mead to help me make a glued book of them as a memento. And I am totally going to print out the new I Survived poster to be the last page. Hahahaha! Want to see a video of my last year’s post? There is no sound because I was a newbie video-er and didn’t know how to do that. Still don’t but I have a better idea now.
The 100 Day Project starts this Tuesday, April 2nd. You don’t have to do anything special to get involved. I’ll leave you with a few links and my video.
